Chris Hussey's injury-time strike earned Burton Albion a shock win over League One side Sheffield United in the first round of the Capital One Cup.

The defender put the League Two side ahead against the run of play after the break when the Blades failed to deal with an Adam McGurk cross.

United, who had wasted numerous chances to go ahead, levelled through Michael Doyle's spectacular 25-yard strike.

But Hussey powered in a fine headed winner from Alex MacDonald's cross.

VIEWS FROM THE DRESSING ROOM

Sheffield United manager David Weir told BBC Radio Sheffield:

"Ultimately I'm disappointed in losing the game especially as it was so late on.

"We need to look at the reason we conceded the goals, why we conceded them and how we can do better.

"I thought we played well enough in parts of the game, but there's obviously issues that we need to do better."

Burton Albion manager Gary Rowett told BBC Radio Derby:

"It was difficult game. They put a strong side out and passed the ball and kept it. In the first half we got a little bit frustrated for 25 minutes but we weren't in too much trouble and the game started to open up a bit more.

"It's another fantastic performance against a side who you would think would be one of the favourites to get out of League One.

"We kept our discipline and shape and in the last 15 minutes of the first half we started to get one or two opportunities."
