Julian Jeanvier scored the winning goal as Brentford beat Cheltenham to reach the third round of the Carabao Cup.

French defender Jeanvier struck just before half-time, netting from close range following a goalmouth scramble.

Championship side Brentford looked to stretch their lead and Lewis Macleod forced Cheltenham goalkeeper Scott Flinders into a fine save.

League Two club Cheltenham's best chance fell to Aden Baldwin, whose header was cleared off the line.
