Sheffield United are getting a reputation as being one of the cup teams.
The League One side reached the last four of the FA Cup last season – now they’re hoping to secure another Wembley appearance.
In the last twelve months they’ve already beaten five Premier League teams.
Aston Villa, Fulham, West Ham, Southampton and QPR have all been dumped out of the cups by Nigel Clough’s side.
Clough was named FA Cup manager of the season last year.
Now the Blades are hoping to take another top flight scalp when they go to Tottenham.
The route to the semi-finals:
Captain Michael Doyle accepts his side must lift their game to an even higher level if they are to pull off another upset in the semi-final.
But the Irish midfielder insists if the tie is still alive after the first leg at White Hart Lane, Nigel Clough's cup specialists will have "a brilliant chance" in the return leg at Bramall Lane.
"There's a lot to play for and I'm sure Tottenham will be fired up,'' Doyle said. "They'll look at our previous results and performances in other cup games and I'm sure they'll take note of that.
"They won't underestimate us, especially as we've come so far and they'll be looking to finish it in the first leg, so we've got to be on our guard.
"I just hope we can keep the tie alive. If we can, coming back to Bramall Lane will give us a brilliant chance.''
