Penalty heartache and controversy: Newcastle United’s League Cup quarter-finals remembered in images

The Magpies are looking to break an unwanted record on Tuesday night.

Newcastle United can move to within one round of a place at Wembley when they host Leicester City at St James Park in the Carabao Cup quarter-final on Tuesday night.

Eddie Howe’s men have battled their way past a scare at League Two club Tranmere Rovers and overcome Premier League rivals Crystal Palace and Bournemouth to reach the last eight of the competition for the tenth time in their history. Yet the events of the past will not inspire confidence as United look to move into a bright new future as the Magpies look to end the club’s long wait for silverware over the coming months.

NewcastleWorld takes a look back at United’s previous nine League Cup quarter-final ties and remembers penalty heartache and red card controversies, as well as answering the question how did the only Magpie to score a winning goal in a quarter-final tie never play for Newcastle United.
