It’s a cliché, but games of football can often pivot on one decision, one miss or one goal.
Cup competitions by their very nature play on this, with the importance of the score over the 90 minutes, plus added time, deciding whose campaign continues, and whose ends prematurely.
The Capital One Cup has once again proven just how important a split second can be in a long and hard season, with the fate and skill combining on numerous occasions to give us the imminent Final between Sunderland and Manchester City.
