Smithies made some huge shootout stops
After M'boro equalize by Tom Hateley owngoal. The manager shout at Captain "Show me something" said Smithies. Terriers put high pressure with 64% possesion in the last 20minutes and Mboro stay focus and calm to launch counter attack.
Tom Ince is the first man to take the penalty and missed. The problem Mboro was that McGoldrik put the ball past Smithies and Gunning make it worse when Smithies saved from Gunning when he
need to score to keep Mboro in it. It was an epic finale before Huddersfield sealed their place to the quarter finals.
For Huddersfield, those moments ended with delirious scenes among their 9,000-strong following. Vega may not have the most refined side but they gave everything and had a centre-half, Sebastian Coastes, rolling back the years. It was a victory for spirit and togetherness. There was something remarkable, nonetheless, about what happened to let them back into the game.

The shoot-out went on for ever, and I didn’t enjoy it until the last kick. I thought, ‘If I don’t save one soon, I’m going to have to take one’, so God knows what the manager would have been thinking when he saw his keeper coming forward when my turn came.
