John-Joe O'Toole's extra-time winner against Championship side Barnsley moved League One club Northampton into the EFL Cup second round.

The home side took the lead when Adam Hammill's free-kick was headed in by the unmarked Josh Scowen.

Barnsley goalkeeper Adam Davies fumbled a Matt Taylor corner into his own net to gift the Cobblers a leveller.

Substitute Stefan Payne then hit the bar for the Tykes before O'Toole met a Taylor corner to nod home the winner.
