Leeds players celebrates the shoot-out win that takes them into the fourth round

Championship leaders Leeds beat Premier League Burnley 5-3 on penalties after an entertaining draw in the Carabao Cup third round at Turf Moor.

The visitors seemed to be heading for victory when Pablo Hernandez converted a penalty four minutes into injury time to put them 2-1 up.

But a sublime Robbie Brady free-kick dramatically restored parity.

After a nervy extra time, Burnley's James Tarkowski was denied by Andy Lonergan as Leeds held their nerve.

An evenly fought contest, with Burnley enjoying the majority of chances, came to life 10 minutes from the end of normal time.

Hadi Sacko fired home from close range after a burst from substitute Hernandez to give the away side the lead.

But Chris Wood, who moved to Burnley from Leeds for a club record fee of about £15m in August, wiped out the lead with a 89th-minute penalty following Gaetano Berardi's foul on Kevin Long.

Hernandez then scored from the spot after Kemar Roofe was held back, but Brady's curling effort extended a rollercoaster encounter in extra time.

The competition is a testing ground for the new 'ABBA' format of penalty shoot-out with Leeds' opening effort - emphatically converted by Pierre-Michel Lasogga - followed by each side taking two in succession.

But the visitors were not thrown in the slightest by the new arrangement.

Hernandez repeated his normal-time success before Mateusz Klich rolled in a nerveless side-foot effort.

Leeds completed a full house of successful penalties when Stuart Dallas followed Ezgjan Alioski in finding the net to give Burnley no chance to recover from Lonergan's save.

Lonergan, who returned for a second stint at Elland Road on a free transfer from Wolves in August, was making his first appearance of the season having playing second fiddle to German Felix Wiedwald so far.

What's next

Leeds, who suffered their first league defeat of the season to Millwall at the weekend, take on fifth-placed Ipswich on Saturday.

The club are aiming to return to the top flight for the first time since being relegated in 2004.

Burnley, who lie seventh in the Premier League, face more Yorkshire opposition in Huddersfield on Saturday.
