Everton 3-0 Salford, Leeds 1-1 Hull (8-9 on pens): Carabao Cup – as it happened

Everton beat Salford easily enough, Leeds equalised in the last minute only to lose to Hull on penalties and Brentford won at Southampton

“Okay, I haven’t a clue as to what the Northampton/ Villa/ Charlton/ Liverpool thing is all about,” says Geoff Wignall. “But I reckon the shortest name must now be Fulham and by my reckoning, three clubs with an x factor (Exeter, Oxford and Crewe) .

Clubs whose name starts and ends with the same letter. And yes, we’ve lost Halifax and Wrexham from the Xs.

Everton hit the post twice! Kenny crosses well from the left and Kean leaps well, cracking a header into the upright, then Gordon lashes the rebound straight back into it!

Kean does some high pigeon-steps, leaps, and as Hladky goes left, he sweeps high into the middle!

Gordon skates towards the line and Bruno Andrade can’t help but dangle a leg from the wrong side, and that’s a clear penalty. Moise Kean immediately grabs the ball.

That was exciting! It’s always funny when a team fight their way back at the last, only to lose anyway, and that’s what happened there. In fairness to Hull, they were by far the better side.

Nkounkou goes down the left, finds Gordon, and Sigurdsson punches home his cross to finish things.

There’s still not much going on at Goodison, and Ancelotti is getting noised up as a consequence.

Hull scored all five penalties in beating Sunderland in the last round; Leeds didn’t manage a shot on target during the first 89 minutes of this game.

What a finish! Leeds force a couple of corners, and when the second isn’t cleared, the ball ends up running across Alioski, who swivels onto it and screws a brilliant left-footed finish high into the far top corner! Hull should’ve been sorted ages ago, and that’s what happens when you miss your chances.

“If you’re doing updates on ancient quiz questions,” says Andrew Goudie, “who has taken over Bury’s claim to fame of having the shortest name in the league?”

Hull should finish it! Docherty sends Scott in through the middle, but his finish is tentative and Casilla blocks it behind. Three minutes of the 90 remaining.

At Goodison, Wilson goes down the right and digs out a cross that Hunter heads down … only for Towell to leather over the top! That was as good a chance as Salford are getting.

“Do you know what’s the case with Northampton,” says Simon Dobinson. “I do know if the other three clubs are Liverpool, Aston Villa and Charlton Athletic?”

There you go. We used to have York City, might get Solihull Moors one day, and Scotland has Dundee United, Kilmarnock, and Celtic if you don’t call them Glasgow Celtic.

Even more all over at Ashton Gate. Semenyo missed a decent chance a few minutes ago, but quickly made up for it, collecting Palmer’s backheel and scoring at the second attempt.

“Genesis of Psalm 23 at West Brom?” says Tom Levesley? “It’s all down to an Everton game, and look who we’re playing on Saturday…”
