Stoke City boss Mark Hughes reflected on a 'straightforward' victory for his side at the Britannia as the Potters dumped Sheffield Wednesday out of the Capital One Cup.
Stoke dominated most of the tie, aside from a spell at the beginning of the second half and Hughes insists the home side showed the 'right mentality' throughout, so as not to come unstuck in the same way Owls previous cup victims Newcastle and Arsenal had done.
"I was pleased with the performance," said Hughes. "I thought we got the job done. Sheffield have a good team and it was important not to under-estimate them.
"We had the right mentality and did what we had to do on the night. It was a quite straightforward victory in the end. We didn't allow them any foothold or momentum.
"Once we scored, I thought we can take the game away from them."
