AMB advances Sheff Utd in EFL Cup to prepare for derby trip

Karlan Grant also scored for West Brom in their draw with Watford on Monday

Substitute Karlan Grant’s goal gave West Bromwich Albion victory over Championship rivals Sheffield United in the Carabao Cup to set up a second-round trip to Derby.

In an entertaining first half, it was the visitors who came closest to opening the scoring when Rhian Brewster’s shot came back off the post.

Grant headed in the winner from a Callum Robinson cross just three minutes after coming on.

Robinson and Matt Phillips hit the crossbar in quick succession as the Baggies looked to secure victory, but one goal was enough.

However, there was some bad news for the victors, with striker Grant forced off with an injury before the end of the game.

Steve Bruce’s men, who have drawn their opening two league games this season, travel to Pride Park on Tuesday, August 23.
