Everton beat Salford easily enough, Leeds equalised in the last minute only to lose to Hull on penalties and Brentford won at Southampton
âOkay, I havenât a clue as to what the Northampton/ Villa/ Charlton/ Liverpool thing is all about,â says Geoff Wignall. âBut 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, weâve 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 canât help but dangle a leg from the wrong side, and thatâs a clear penalty. Moise Kean immediately grabs the ball.
That was exciting! Itâs always funny when a team fight their way back at the last, only to lose anyway, and thatâs 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.
Thereâs 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 didnât 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 isnât 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 shouldâve been sorted ages ago, and thatâs what happens when you miss your chances.
âIf youâre doing updates on ancient quiz questions,â says Andrew Goudie, âwho has taken over Buryâs claim to fame of having the shortest name in the league?â
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.
âDo you know whatâs the case with Northampton,â says Simon Dobinson. âI do know if the other three clubs are Liverpool, Aston Villa and Charlton Athletic?â
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 donât 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 Palmerâs backheel and scoring at the second attempt.
âGenesis of Psalm 23 at West Brom?â says Tom Levesley? âItâs all down to an Everton game, and look who weâre playing on Saturday…â
