“But Sheffield United’s victory was very impressive and Wycombe’s success at Portsmouth was very much the shock of the round.”

Johnstone’s Paint Trophy sponsorship manager Paul Farrell said: “There were a lot of entertaining games in the second round and it was difficult to narrow it down to two stand-out performances.

Sheffield United scooped the northern section award for their 4-1 win over Notts County.

Joel Grant opened the scoring inside 13 seconds and a double from Dean Morgan, either side of an Izale McLeod goal for Pompey, ensured an unforgettable night on the south coast. 

Gareth Ainsworth's men landed the gong thanks to a 3-1 second-round victory at the home of the 2008 FA Cup winners.
