Saints travel in Capital One Cup
10:48pm Wednesday 25th September 2013 in Sport
SAINTS have been drawn away to Premier League opposition in the fourth round of the Capital One Cup.
They were second out of the hat last night and travel to Sunderland on the weekend of October 29 and 30.
Saints made sure of their place with a 2-0 win over Bristol City on Tuesday, while Sunderland beat Peterborough 2-0 to go through.
There are still some heavyweights left in the competition, however.
Jonny Evans made clear Manchester United's ambition to win the Cup after they beat Liverpool 1-0 in their third-round tie at Old Trafford.
Javier Hernandez scored the only goal of an absorbing game as United responded in the best way possible to their 4-1 mauling by neighbours City on Sunday.
Evans was making his first start of the season and he made no bones about United's desire to lift the cup.
He said: ''We want to win it. It was the first trophy I won and it was a great feeling to win it then.
''It's a competition we want to win, we will be taking it seriously.''
Evans added: ''I think the the fans enjoyed it, we certainly enjoyed it.
''It was a hard game, Liverpool have been playing expansive football.
''I am just glad we got the goal after half-time and held on.
''They put out a strong team. There were a lot of lads out there who haven't had a lot of football and were getting a bit tired towards the end.''
Fellow defender Chris Smalling admitted the victory was doubly important following Sunday's thrashing by City.
He said: ''It was a massive turnaround.
''It was a big stage for us to go out there.
''There was a lot of doubt at the weekend, we needed to go out and put on a performance.''
For the England defender, the intensity of the game was reminiscent of the Premier League.
He said: ''I felt like it was end to end for pretty much 90 minutes.
''It shows we can go out there on the big occasion and produce.''
