Sheffield United midfielder Stefan Scougall believes the Bramall Lane supporters can spur the Blades into the League Cup final.
The League One side are a goal down from the first leg, but are in confident mood ahead of the second leg.
"There is nothing for us to fear and we are going to try to cause an upset - like what happened at the weekend (in the FA Cup fourth round) with Middlesbrough beating Manchester City and Bradford beating Chelsea.
"We have proved ourselves over the last year whenever we have played a team in a higher league that there is nothing to fear. We can go out and cause another upset.
"I think you will have around 30,000 Blades fans at Bramall Lane on Wednesday night, so I think that is going to help us and drive us on a little bit more."
