Darren Bent scored another goal for Spurs, this time just fifteen minutes from time, giving Tottenham a 2-1 victory at Watford and a spot in the semifinals of the Carling Cup. Already holders of the Carling Cup, Spurs are just one more win away from going back to Wembley.
Tamas Priskin opened the match’s scoring for Watford in the 13th minute but Spurs answered just before half-time on a Roman Pavlyuchenko penalty. Watford, managed by Frank Lampard, Sr., played well and kept in the match but were unable to prevent Bent’s match-winner on 76 minutes.
Meanwhile, Manchester United also reached the semifinals when Carlos Tevez hit for four goals in a 5-3 defeat of Blackburn Rovers.
