Continuing a brand new web feature, we take a look at all the essentials from Tuesday's 2-0 cup victory over Notts County.

The Iron progressed to round two of the EFL Cup for the first time in two seasons, but required extra time to see off the Magpies.

The League Two side had chances of their own, with Luke Daniels making a fine save one-on-one to send the game into extra time. Kevin van Veen netted either side of the half time interval to seal a place in the second round for United, first firing home a loose ball following a free-kick won by Luke Williams.

His second was a solo effort after picking up the ball in midfield. Sam Mantom, on for his Iron debut, did the running to drag one defender away, with the Dutchman firing into the corner of the net with his left foot from the edge of the area.

FIVE IN FOUR: Kevin van Veen runs to celebrate with Josh Morris who provided the cross for his opening goal in the 100th minute.


With the season just three days old, no fewer than eleven games were stretched to 120 minutes, while one fixture went the distance.

That game saw Accrington Stanley provide a minor shock to beat League One Bradford City on penalties. After a goalless draw, the ten men hosts emerged victorious by 11-10 on kicks taken from the penalty mark.

That wasn't the only shock though as Championship sides Barnsley, Birmingham City, Sheffield Wednesday, Brentford, Ipswich Town, Wigan Athletic, Rotherham United and Huddersfield Town were all knocked out by lower league opposition.

One of those games was a nine-goal thriller as League Two Morecambe saw off the challenge of Rotherham United at the New York Stadium with the game played over 120 minutes. It was just 1-0 to the visitors at half time following a sixth minute goal, with the host's equaliser coming via the penalty spot. The visitors again went ahead, but the Millers thought they'd won the tie through a quickfire double from Jerry Yates and Anthony Forde to put them 3-2 up.

That wasn't the end of the drama though as the referee awarded spot kick in the second minute of stoppage time which saw the Shrimpers level the scores. Two goals in extra time took the score to 5-3 in favour of Morecambe before Yates reduced that to 5-4 with seconds remaining.
