Carabao Cup: Millwall edge past Gillingham on penalties to reach round two

Championship side Millwall are into round two of the Carabao Cup thanks to a 3-1 penalty shootout win over Gillingham.

The tie was goalless after 90 minutes, with Fred Onyedinma closest to scoring for Millwall.

Both sides missed their opening efforts in the shootout before Gills forward Josh Parker blazed over the top.

Ben Amos then brilliantly tipped Brandon Hanlon's strike onto the post to win it for the hosts.

The game was short of chances throughout, with Millwall winger Onyedinma unlucky when his shot was cleared off the line.

Regan Charles-Cook then went close for the Gills, who have won their opening two League One matches, but after running through on goal he dragged a shot wide.

It went to penalties, and misses from Parker and Hanlon were enough to send the Gills home.
