Carabao Cup: Sheffield United 1-1 Hull City (4-5 pens)

Kevin Stewart has not scored a goal for Hull since moving from Liverpool in July 2017

Kevin Stewart scored the winning penalty as Hull City beat Sheffield United after a 1-1 draw in their Carabao Cup first-round tie.

Jon Toral put Hull ahead on the break when he won the ball, played in Nouha Dicko and then finished well unmarked after getting the it back.

Billy Sharp levelled with an excellent volley at the back post as the game came to an end.

Oliver Norwood was the only player to miss in the shootout as he shot over.

Both sides had great chances to win the game in normal time - Will Keane headed against the post for Hull after 57 minutes, while John Egan had two good headed chances for United soon after, the second hitting the crossbar.

On-loan Liverpool and Wales youngster Ben Woodburn made his first start for United but after an early chance had a quiet game.

Chris Basham could have won the game in stoppage time for the Blades but Toral brilliantly headed his goalbound effort off the line.

United were faultless from the spot as Toral, Keane, Kamil Grosicki and Manuel Milinkovic all netted before Stewart's winner.
