Continuing our post match website feature, we take a look at all the essentials from our narrow cup exit against Championship Bristol City.

The Iron were knocked out of the EFL Cup after taking Championship side Bristol City to extra time.

Chelsea loanee Tammy Abraham netted the decisive goal in extra time to set up a round three tie away at Fulham, ending United's interest in the competition for another year. Josh Morris has restored parity in the second half of normal time from the penalty spot to add on the extra thirty minutes, with Bobby Reid breaking the deadlock in the first half.

EXTRA TIME: Iron manager Graham Alexander briefs his players ahead of the period of extra time.


There was arguably just one major shock on Tuesday's round of fixtures as Northampton Town held and then defeated West Bromwich Albion on penalties. A quickfire double had put the Baggies in pole position following Zander Diamond's first half strike, with Alex Revell sending the game to extra time. The hosts would them win 4-3 on spot kicks to set up a round three home tie to Premier League Manchester United.

On Wednesday, it was Accrington Stanley who stole the show with their 120th minute winner against Burnley. It was virtually the last kick of the game that was converted to prevent penalties. Their reward for that scalp is a trip to the London Stadium to face West Ham United.

Elsewhere, results were largely as expected, although Blackburn Rovers needed extra time to overcome League Two Crewe Alexandra, while Chelsea survived a late scare as Bristol Rovers twice reduced the deficit. Liverpool, Everton, Norwich City and Stoke City all eased through their second round ties, with only seven ties going the distance to extra time.
