Port Vale boss Micky Adams admitted knocking his old foes Sheffield Wednesday out of the Carling Cup will take some topping, whoever his team draw in round three.
The Valiants were 2-0 victors over 10-man Wednesday, having ousted Sheffield United in the first round thanks to stunning goals from Kris Taylor and Robert Taylor.
Adams, who supported United as a boy, said: "I didn't like knocking United out but beating Wednesday was a different matter. Even if we play Manchester United in the next round, this is the tops for me."
He said: "I know people will say we beat 10 men and of course that was a factor but I thought the attitude of my players was spot-on from the start. It would have been a travesty if we had not gone through."
"The game plan was to give Wednesday as little time on the ball as possible and I thought our tactics were spot-on. Every player did their bit and it`s not a time to single out any individuals."
