  •  Blackburn 3-2 Doncaster

Blackburn survived a scare before Adam Armstrong’s late penalty secured victory over Donny. It was Lewis Holtby’s stunning free-kick that gave the Lancashire outfit a deserved lead by half-time.

Doncaster looked rusty in their first competitive game back in almost six months but hit back after the break by grabbing two goals in the space of 10 minutes – a Fejiri Okenabirhie penalty and strike from Madger Gomes.

But it was Joe Rankin-Costello who got his first senior goal to level the score before Armstrong’s late penalty ensured the Championship side are in the draw for round two.

  • Preston 4-0 Mansfield

Alex Neil’s side took no pity on the lowly Stags as they cruised into the next stage of the Carabao Cup with an impressive 4-0 victory at Deepdale.

Goals from Tom Barkhuizen, Sean Maguire, Patrick Bauer and Josh Harrop proved far too strong for their League Two visitors.

  • Stoke 0-0 Blackpool (5-4 pens)

It was goalkeeper Adam Davies who was the hero as a below-par Potters managed to overcome Blackpool, but it had to take a penalty shootout to sort this one out in the first round of the Carabao Cup.

Davies saved from Oliver Sarkic and Keshi Anderson to take the shootout into sudden death after James McClean and Jordan Thompson failed to score for the Michael O’Neill’s side.

Bruno Martins Indi and James Husband made no mistake for their sides before Stoke’s Tashan Oakley-Boothe scored off the post.

But Blackpool’s Ollie Turton put his penalty wide of the left post to seal Stoke’s place in the second round.

  • Stevenage 3-3 Portsmouth (1-3 pens)

Just like Potters keeper Adam Davies, it was Craig MacGillivray who was the penalty hero for Pompey, as they came back from behind to win at Stevenage and reach the second round of the Carabao Cup.

Elliot List and Charlie Carter took advantage of some extremely sloppy defending to give Stevenage a commanding lead in the opening 10 minutes.

Ronan Curtis reduced the deficit, but again Pompey were their own worst enemy to allow Scott Cuthbert to score.

But Gareth Evans converted from the spot on the stroke of half-time and, in a much-improved display following the interval, John Marquis emphatically levelled.

The tie went to a penalty shoot-out and substitute MacGillivray saved three of the hosts’ four efforts to ensure the Blues progressed.
