Rotherham United boss Steve Evans reveals his delight after his side overcame Sheffield Wednesday in the first round of the League Cup on Tuesday.

Rotherham United boss Steve Evans has admitted that he was "very proud" after his side overcame Sheffield Wednesday in the first round of the League Cup on Tuesday.

Goals from Ben Pringle and Lee Frecklington were enough to secure a 2-1 win for Rotherham, their first home success over Wednesday in 37 years.

"It was an epic cup tie on the pitch and the atmosphere off the pitch was fantastic. I'm a proud man, it has been 37 years since Rotherham beat Sheffield Wednesday at home. We love to break records," he told Sky Sports News.

"There has been fantastic managers at this football club and for 37 years none of them have beaten Sheffield Wednesday at home. That makes me very proud."

The draw for the second round of the cup takes place on Thursday.
