Trailing 1-0 after the away leg, Shrewsbury levelled matters through Mark Taylor after 36 minutes. Kenny Monkou compounded the Premiership strugglers' angst three minutes later when sent off following a second set-to with Dean Spink, and with 19 minutes remaining, the left-winger, Mike Brown, playing on with a broken nose, volleyed the winner.
Tottenham endured some blushes at home to Second Division Burnley but prevailed at the last, a 73rd-minute volley from the substitute, David Howells, supplemented by an injury-time header from Teddy Sheringham, bringing Ossie Ardiles' side a 3-1 aggregate victory, albeit only after Colin Calderwood had cleared off the line and Kevin Russell had struck a post with the scores level. Gordon Durie hurled abuse at the Spurs' bench upon being substituted, while Tottenham's England Youth international, Darren Caskey, was shown the red card after a clash with Les Thompson.
The main drama of the night was to be found at the New Den, where three players were sent off and Millwall overcame an early 2-0 deficit against Watford to sneak home 4-3 thanks to Etienne Verveer's strike a minute from the end of extra time.
Scotland's Old Firm suffered at the hands of the new regime, Rangers losing 2-1 to Motherwell at Ibrox and St Johnstone increasing the pressure on Liam Brady via a 2-1 home win over Celtic.
Another candidate for unemployment is the Lazio coach, Dino Zoff, whose side were jeered after a humiliating 2-0 home defeat by Third Division Avellino in an Italian Cup second-round first-leg tie.Reuse content
