Diego De Girolamo scored his first goal for Sheffield United as last season's FA Cup semi-finalists earned a fourth-round replay with a 1-1 draw at Deepdale.

Preston began the brighter and Paul Gallagher opened the scoring on 19 minutes but Italy under-20 international De Girolamo struck midway through the second half for the Blades.

Former United striker Gallagher, who scored twice to help defeat Norwich in the last round, fired home a brilliant 30-yard free-kick to give the hosts the lead.

Emmanuel Adebayor named captain in Tottenham's win vs. Sheff United

Bob Harris of Sheffield United clashes with Andros Townsend of Spurs during the first leg of the teams' Capital One Cup tie at White Hart Lane.

Mauricio Pochettino admitted his Tottenham side laboured to victory in their Capital One Cup semifinal first leg against Sheffield United, while defending his decision to name Emmanuel Adebayor as his skipper.

A second-half Andros Townsend penalty was all that separated Spurs and their League One visitors, with the tie very much still alive heading into next Wednesday's second leg at Bramall Lane.

1. Sheffield United blunt Tottenham's attack

Tottenham's route to Wembley is by no means secured. Next week's second leg will be on nearly as much a knife-edge as Tuesday's tie between Chelsea and Liverpool. Even Tottenham's emerging striker Harry Kane looked blunted by Sheffield United's defence. He ran with typical vigour,...

Tottenham's Townsend on Sheffield United: 'They were extremely difficult'

ESPN FC's Gab Marcotti and Steve Nicol analyse whether Tottenham has enough depth to win the Capital One Cup and finish top four in the Premier League.

Tottenham pair Jan Vertonghen and Andros Townsend admitted they were given a tough test by underdogs Sheffield United in their Capital One Cup semifinal first leg.

The Premier League side were heavy favourites against the League One outfit, but were largely stifled going forward in a dour match at White Hart Lane.

They eventually claimed a hard-fought 1-0 win following Townsend's 74th-minute penalty kick after Jay McEveley senselessly handled in the area.
