Huddersfield strolled into the Northern Area semi-finals of the Johnstone's Paint Trophy with a high-quality display in a 5-2 demolition job at Rotherham.

Terriers striker Jordan Rhodes broke the deadlock after just 27 seconds and though Ryan Taylor levelled matters when he smashed past Jamie Annerson, Rhodes grabbed his and Huddersfield's second from close range.

Benik Afobe scored twice either side of Scott Arfield's strike and though Ryan Cresswell grabbed one back for the Millers with the last kick of the game, it was too little, too late.

Last year's beaten finalists Carlisle got back on the Wembley trail with a 3-1 victory over Crewe.

The Cumbrians dominated the early stages, and it was no surprise when they took the lead in the 14th minute courtesy of a Clayton Donaldson error. Matty Robson swung in a dangerous free-kick from the right and the Crewe forward's attempted clearance flew past his own keeper.

Carlisle doubled their advantage in the 73rd minute when Peter Murphy headed James Berrett's right-wing corner home from six yards.

Crewe snatched a goal back in the 75th minute when Donaldson slammed a first-time shot past Adam Collin after Byron Moore had nodded Ashley Westwood's ball into his path. However, man-of-the-match Murphy thumped a header past Rhys Taylor with five minutes remaining to settle the Cumbrians' nerves.

Ian Thomas-Moore grabbed his seventh goal of the season to hand Tranmere a 1-0 victory at Bury.

Rovers took the lead with their first attack of the game in the eighth minute.

Shakers goalkeeper Richie Branagan came and missed Enoch Showunmi's cross, allowing Thomas-Moore to control the ball six yards out and volley in at the far post past two defenders on the line.
