STOKE CITY secured a spot in the last eight of the Capital Cup in the most dramatic fashion against Championship side Birmingham at St Andrews last night.
The Potters looked to be well on course for a spot in Wednesday's Quarter-Final draw thanks to goals from Oussama Assaidi, Peter Crouch and Marko Arnautovic.
However, a late, late double from Blues forward Peter Lovenkrands took the tie into extra-time, with Tom Adeyemi's seemingly consolation strike in the first-half proving to be more valuable than first thought.
Kenwyne Jones' strike four minutes into extra-time re-established the visitors lead, but once again Lee Clarke's side showed great character by netting in the 118th minute to take the tie to penalties.
Thankfully, it was a lot more routine for the visitors from the spot, as strikes from Jones, Ryan Shawcross, Marc Muniesa and Steven Nzonzi secured a 4-2 victory.
