Wycombe Wanderers win 7-6 on penalties

Carabao Cup: Wycombe Wanderers 1-1 Northampton Town (7-6 pens)

Adam El-Abd's decisive penalty sent Wycombe Wanderers through to the Carabao Cup second round with victory over Northampton after a shootout.

The hosts won 7-6 on spot-kicks after a 1-1 draw in normal time, with no extra-time amid the competition's new rules.

Randell Williams had nodded in to put Wycombe ahead before Sam Hoskins tucked in to level for the Cobblers late on.

In the shootout, El-Abd sealed it in sudden death after Northampton defender Jordan Turnbull's kick was saved.
