Hull clinched a deserved upset at Leeds in the Carabao Cup second round after winning a penalty shootout 9-8.

Defender Alfie Jones scored the decisive penalty after Leeds had been fortunate to force a 1-1 draw through Ezgjan Alioski’s stoppage-time equaliser.

The League One side had deservedly led through forward Mallik Wilks, who appeared to have sunk his former club with a deflected early first-half effort.

Leeds were disappointing after making 11 changes from and had next to no chances throughout 90 minutes before Alioski slammed home an unlikely leveller in the fourth minute of added time.

Brentford knocked out Premier League Southampton with a surprise 2-0 success at St Mary’s despite a mini-coronavirus crisis.

The Championship club’s plans for the second-round tie had been considerably disrupted by an unnamed player testing positive for Covid-19

With some squad members forced to self-isolate, the Brentford manager, Thomas Frank, made six changes for the tie and was only able to name five of the seven permitted substitutes.

Those available responded in style as ChristianNørgaard headed home in the 40th minute and Josh Dasilva soon slotted in a second at the end of a well-worked move. In the third round they will travel to West Brom, who breezed past Football League newcomers Harrogate 3-0.

Rekeem Harper, Hal Robson-Kanu and Callum Robinson struck as the Baggies avoided an upset.

Aleksandar Mitrovic scored the only goal of the game to put Fulham through after a 1-0 victory over Ipswich at Portman Road.

Named as stand-in captain on his 26th birthday, the Serbian found the net with a powerful first-half header past goalkeeper David Cornell.

Chris Martin netted his first Bristol City goal, Antoine Semenyo was also on target and Kasey Palmer scored twice in a 4-0 win over Northampton.
