    It is a lip-smacker of a draw for sure.

    Looking forward to it already.

    That is it though for tonight - an evening on which Celtic spiraled out of the Champions League qualifiers and Watford fell victim to Preston in the Capital One Cup.

    See you around the bend.

  2. Capital One Cup draw

    Meanwhile Aston Villa midfielder Gary Gardner, on loan at Nottingham Forest, is relishing the renewal of second-city rivalries.

  3. Capital One Cup draw

    Arsenal have been drawn to play arch rivals Tottenham in the third round and it seems Gunners midfielder Aaron Ramsey is up for the challenge...

  4. Third round

    And there is a tasty supporting cast of matches to those two enormous local grudge matches.

    League One Walsall roll out the red carpet for Jose and his Chelsea Premier League champions, while League Two Carlisle have a trip to Anfield to mark down in the calendar.

    Manchester United could have got easier opposition than Championship leaders Ipswich as well.

  5. Reaction

    Luton 1-1 Stoke (7-8 on pens)

    Stoke manager Mark Hughes speaking to Sky Sports: 

    "We didn't expect it to got to penalties. We should be good enough to see the game out but we switched off, gave them one chance and they took it to extra time. Credit to them. 

    "You always worry when it goes to penalties but that was one of the better penalty competitions I have seen. We will get better. The order of the day was to get through and we have done that."

  6. Third round

    Well, well, well.

    Derby central.

    Tottenham and Arsenal meet in a north London dust-up and Aston Villa and Birmingham clash at Villa Park.

    Peter Enckelman? Danny Rose? Who is about to write their name in local history?

    These matches will be played on the week commencing 21 September.

    Hull v Swansea

  34. FULL-TIME Burton 1-2 Middlesbrough

    Luton 1-1 Stoke

    Stoke with a late free-kick. This could be their last roll of the dice. Erik Pieters to take it. A deep delivery, Mame Biram Diouf up for it at the far post, but he has used his hand to try and divert it home.

    A yellow card. And surely penalties to decide this one...

  40. GOAL - Aston Villa 5-3 Notts County

    Joe Bennett (111)

  42. GOAL - Doncaster 1-4 Ipswich

    That should just about be that for the early Championship leaders. David McGoldrick again involved, this time he sets up Ryan Fraser to finish into the bottom corner.

  54. Viva Espana

    Alvaro Negredo

    Happy days former Manchester City striker Alvaro Negredo. His goal has helped Valencia to a 4-3 aggregate win over Monaco in the Champions League play-offs.

    Malmo 2-0 Celtic (4-3 agg)

    Ronnie Deila

    Celtic never really got close in the end.

    There will be no repeat of those glorious Champions League nights against Barcelona from a couple of years back.

  86. Post update

    Bury 1-4 Leicester

    Joseph Dodoo

    It might be worth Roy Hodgson getting his beach towel down early when it comes to Leicester striker Joe Dodoo after his hat-trick tonight.

    The 20-year-old has previously represented England under-18s, but still qualifies for Ghana, via both his parents.

  87. Analysis

  90. GOAL - Luton Town 1-1 Stoke City

    Cameron McGeehan (90+1 mins)

    Cameron McGeehan celebrates

  91. Cupset update

    Three of the 11 Premier League clubs in action tonight are in precarious positions.

  92. GOAL - Bury 1-3 Leicester

    Joe Dodoo (87 mins)

    An impressive full debt for Joe Dodoo, as the 19-year-old scores his second of the night with a low finish. That will probably finish League One side Bury's hopes of a comeback.

  93. GOAL - Walsall 2-1 Brighton

    Adam McCleary (84 mins)

    Some fine play from Reading is rewarded as Danny Williams blocked shot is latched onto by Adam McCleary who rifles the ball into the net from close range. The Championship side have come from behind and Pompey's hopes of an upset might have gone up in smoke.

  96. Post update

    Sunderland 5-3 Exeter

    Dick Advocaat

    By the looks of it, Dick Advocaat might have wished he had taken his wife's initial advice in the summer and left the Stadium of Light on a relegation escape-job high.

    His side are going to win tonight, but they have made a right old meal of it.

  97. Newcastle 4-1 Northampton

    Striker Ivan Toney makes his Newcastle debut by coming on for Massadio Haidara against the club he left earlier on this summer in order to move to St James's Park. 

  98. GOAL - Rotherham 1-2 Norwich

  99. Post update

    Luton 0-1 Stoke

    Luton fans

    Ryan Hall and Cameron McGeehan wallop shots goalwards in quick succession but Shay Given is equal to both.

    Stoke are hanging on, but Luton are not going to die wondering.

    Eight minutes of normal time remain.

  100. GOAL - Aston Villa 3-3 Notts County

    Scott Sinclair (78 mins)

    Controversy! Kieran Richardson charges into the box and is sent tumbling to the floor and the referee points to the spot. The County players are furious. They think he went down way too easily. Scott Sinclair steps up and smashes the ball into the net. Keeper got a hand but couldn't keep it out. This superb game takes another twist.

  101. GOAL - MK Dons 1-1 Cardiff

    Carl Baker (79 mins)

    Game on in Milton Keynes, as Carl Baker smashes in a simple rebound to equalise for the home side.

  105. GOAL - Wolves 2-1 Barnet

    Bira Dembele (76 mins)

    Is there an unlikely comeback on the cards at Molineux? League Two Barnet have bagged themselves a goal and it's game on in the Black Country. Elliot Johnson crossed into the Wolves box, John Akinde flicked on and Bira Dembele was on hand to tap the ball home from close range. The Bees will be hoping to provide some sting to Kenny Jackett's side in the final stages.

  106. GOAL - Fulham 2-0 Sheffield Utd

    Ross McCormack (75 mins)

    Sheffield United were semi-finalists last season but they are heading out of the competition now. Ross McCormack gets his second of the night following a well worked passing move.

  107. RED CARD - Watford's Miguel Britos

    Preston 1-0 Watford

    Big, big problems now for Watford. They are down to 10 men after Miguel Britos is shown a red card on his debut. There is confusion over what it is for as the referee called the player over following a coming together in the box. It appears as though the official is suggesting there was an elbow.

  108. GOAL Sunderland 5-3 Exeter

    Duncan Watmore (78 mins)

    Duncan Watmore scores

    Sunderland Duncan Watmore celebrates his call up to the England Under-21 squad as he beats Exeter keeper Bobby Olejnik to the ball and rolls into an empty net. It's hard to see a way back for the Grecians now.

  112. MISSED PENALTY Walsall 1-1 Brighton

    Chris O'Grady (71 mins)

    Ricky Van Wolfswinkel (68 mins)

    David Pleat

    BBC Radio 5 live at Kenilworth Road

    If it wasn't already, this game is over now for sure, as Junior Stanislas nets his second of the night to make it four for the Premier League side.

  121. GOAL - Portsmouth 1-1 Reading

    Nick Blackman (64 mins)

    Reading restore parity when Nick Blackman steps in from the right and breaks through the Pompey back line to fire the ball past home keeper Paul Jones. The Championship side level the tie but can Portsmouth force an upset?

  122. Aston Villa 2-3 Notts County

    Villa boss Tim Sherwood's answer to his side falling behind for a third time to Notts County is to bring on Joe Cole (remember him) for Adama Traore. Can Cole rescue the Premier League outfit against the League Two side?

  128. GOAL - Doncaster 1-1 Ipswich

    Brett Pitman (58 mins)

    Championship leaders Ipswich were always going to score given they've netted two goals in each of their five games so far this season. Brett Pitman takes advantage of some poor defending in the area to draw the Tractor Boys level.

    Graham Burke (56 mins)

    Would you believe this?! Notts County just won't be denied by their Premier League opponents. They take the lead for a third time as former Villa striker Graham Burke curls a wonderful shot into the far corner of the net from 25 yards. What a goal! What a game!

    The crowd go ripe bananas, the whole stadium is rocking.

    BBC Radio 5 live at Kenilworth Road

    Quote Message: Luton had a great chance on the break, which came from a Stoke corner, but they couldn't quite get it right. The pace hasn't slackened from the Luton point of view as they are playing with a lot of enthusiasm.
  135. GOAL Sheffield Wednesday 1-0 Oxford United

    Atdhe Nuhiu (55 mins)

    Daryl Janmaat (56 mins)

    Scott Sinclair (50 mins)

  138. GOAL - Bury 1-2 Leicester

    Danny Mayor (49 mins)

    The 23 games so far have yielded 32 goals. Let's see what the rest of the evening holds with the second halves in 22 of the matches under way...

  142. Cupsets brewing

    Half-time whistles sounding around the country, so let's have a look where there are some cupsets brewing. There are plenty.

    League Two Notts County are 2-1 up on Premier League Aston Villa as Watford trail Championship Preston by a goal to nil.

    Elsewhere Crystal Palace are being held 1-1 by Shrewsbury while Sunderland are also looking shaky - sharing six goals equally with Exeter in an action-packed first half. 

  143. Rotherham 0-1 Norwich

    What's more shocking - Ricky van Wolfswinkel playing for Norwich for the first time since April 2014 or the Carrow Road side's kit?

  145. Analysis

    Luton 0-0 Stoke (H/T)

    David Pleat

    BBC Radio 5 live at Kenilworth Road

    Quote Message: Stoke manager Mark Hughes will want his to play a little quicker and get forward more on the flanks but Luton have competed so well so far. All-in-all Mark Hughes will have more work to do than counterpart John Still.
  146. GOAL - Aston Villa 1-2 Notts County

    Jon Stead (45 mins)

    Hats off to Notts County. Villa looked set to take control of the game after drawing level, but the League Two side have come again, won a penalty when Izale McLeod was fouled by sliding goalkeeper Mark Bunn and then retaken the lead through Jon Stead's spot-kick. It is the veteran striker's first goal for the club and it could be a huge one. 

  147. Sunderland 3-3 Exeter

  148. GOAL - Hartlepool 0-3 Bournemouth

    Junior Stanislas (44 mins)

    It's three before half-time for Eddie Howe's men who are in complete control.

  149. GOAL - Walsall 0-1 Brighton

    Jake Forster-Caskey (39 mins)

    Jake Forster-Caskey celebrates

    We've gone goal crazy in the League Cup, as Jake Forster-Caskey's penalty gives Brighton the lead against Walsall. Forster-Caskey had been brought down in the area, but dusted himself off to score from 12 yards.

  150. GOAL - Portsmouth 1-0 Reading

    Conor Chaplin (40 mins)

    Well that is absolutely horrendous defending from Reading! Some poor communication at the back allowed Conor Chaplin to round Reading keeper Ali Al Habsi and finish from range at an acute angle.

  151. GOAL Sunderland 3-3 Exeter

    Tom McCready (43 mins)

    Tom McCready

    The Exeter fans who braved the six-hour trip up to Wearside are being rewarded in stunning fashion. Tom McCready puts the Grecians back on level terms from close range.

  152. GOAL - Bury 0-2 Leicester

    Andrej Kramaric (40 mins)

    Leicester double their lead thanks to some smart play from Leonardo Ulloa, winning the ball and teeing up Andrej Kramaric to finish with style.

  153. GOAL - Crystal Palace 1-1 Shrewsbury

    Dwight Gayle (41 mins)

    Dwight Gale scores a penalty

    Palace level. And it has come from the penalty spot after a foul on Wilfried Zaha. Dwight Gayle puts the ball down and side-foots in past the visiting goalkeeper, who dives the wrong way to his right.

  154. GOAL - QPR 1-1 Carlisle

    Jay Emmanuel-Thomas (40 mins)

    That was short lived for the Cumbrians, wasn't it?

    Former Bristol City forward Jay Emmanuel-Thomas smashes in from long range to get QPR level.

  155. Analysis

    Newcastle 2-1 Northampton

    Quote Message: Northampton are having a right go. They are getting in and around Newcastle and their goalkeeper Ryan Clarke has made a couple of decent saves. from Former Newcastle keeper Steve Harper on BBC Radio 5 live

    Hartlepool 0-2 Bournemouth

    He has got the opener tonight but how many goals will it take for Yann Kermorgant to bury the memory of his disastrous play-off penalty miss for Leicester against Cardiff in 2010?

    A miss so cataclysmic it spawned this rather excellent musical tribute.

    At least another one I think. 

  157. GOAL - Birmingham 1-0 Gillingham

    Wes Thomas (35 mins)

    The Championship side take the lead and it is striker Wes Thomas with his first goal of the season, tucking in from a Jacques Maghoma corner.

  158. GOAL - QPR 0-1 Carlisle

    Derek Asamoah (37 mins)

    The cupset klaxon is beginning to sound again - this time at Loftus Road!

    Derek Asamoah slots League Two Carlisle United ahead at Queens Park Rangers.

    That is another absolutely mammoth trip for supporters on this Tuesday night, by the way.

  159. GOAL Sunderland 3-2 Exeter

    Jermain Defoe (38 mins)

    Jermain Defoe celebrates

    Jermain Defoe has his second goal of the night, the 32-year-old latching onto Lee Cattermole's through ball and sliding the ball past Exeter keeper Bobby Olejnik.

  160. Analysis

    David Pleat

    BBC Radio 5 live at Kenilworth Road

    Quote Message: I think Luton boss John Still will be quite pleased as his side are playing with a bit of pace. Stephen Ireland is having some decent possession for Stoke but the visitors are struggling to create chances.
  161. GOAL - Hartlepool 0-2 Bournemouth

    Dan Gosling (34 mins)

    Dan Gosling celebrates

    It's fair to say Dan Gosling is a man who enjoys a League Cup tie - he scored all five of his goals last season in this competition. The midfielder fires in a low shot as the Cherries take a commanding position against the League Two side.

  162. Sunderland 2-2 Exeter

    Exeter's win at Swindon in the League Cup first round was their first away win in the competition since 1992. Just like the buses, could it be a case of two arriving in quick succession after they come back from two goals down to level at the Stadium of Light.

  163. Post update

    Bury 0-1 Leicester

    Leicester development squad manager Steve Beaglehole said before tonight's game that Joe Dodoo "has been wanting that chance, he feels like he’s ready for it and he deserves it".

    He sounds like a confident lad and the 20-year-old debutant has backed up the chat with the opening goal.

  164. GOAL - Hartlepool 0-1 Bournemouth

    Yann Kermorgant (30 mins)

    Yann Kermorgant celebrates with teammates

    It might be a whole new 11 from the one that won at West Ham, but the Premier League newcomers are ahead as Junior Stanislas and Yann Kermorgant combine.

  165. GOAL - Sunderland 2-2 Exeter

    David Wheeler (31 mins)

    David Wheeler scores

    Fantastic from Exeter City, who've hauled themselves back into contention against Premier League Sunderland.

    David Wheeler's far-post header is perfectly placed and has the League Two Grecians level having earlier trailed 2-0.

  166. GOAL - Doncaster 1-0 Ipswich

    Andy Williams (26 mins)

    Paul Dickov's Doncaster have the advantage against the Championship leaders. Striker Andy Williams touches home from a cross on the left, his second of the season.

  167. GOAL Bury 0-1 Leicester

    Joe Dodoo (25 mins)

    Joseph Dodoo scores

    Leicester's Joe Dodoo breaks the deadlock at Gigg Lane. The debutant swivels in the box and hits a powerful left-footed shot which cannons in off the underside of the bar.

  168. GOAL - Aston Villa 1-1 Notts County

    Adama Traore (24 mins)

    Formerly of Barcelona, Adama Traore is used to more glamour than the early rounds of the League Cup, but he has applied himself well to bring Villa level. Jack Grealish makes the goal with a good run into the box and pass to Traore, who does the rest with a low finish.

  169. Analysis

    Quote Message: It looks like Stephen O'Donnell's legs were taken away from him but the assistant referee was close to the incident. A huge sigh of relief from the Stoke bench.
  170. PENALTY APPEAL

    Luton 0-0 Stoke

    Luton Town's Stephen O'Donnell bombs on from right-back and goes down in a heap in the box under the attentions of Marko Arnautovic.

    On closer inspection, O'Donnell got tangled up in his own legs rather than having them taken from him by the back-tracking Arnautovic.

  171. GOAL - Burton 1-0 Middlesbrough

    George Friend OG (24 mins)

    Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink's Burton are ahead against Championship side Middlesbrough!

    Matt Palmer's free-kick from the left isn't properly cleared, and eventually the ball goes bouncing in off Boro defender George Friend.

  172. GOAL - Rotherham 0-1 Norwich

    Jonny Howson (22)

    An amazing finish from Jonny Howson who fires from long-range past Rotherham keeper Adam Collin to break the deadlock after an even opening 20 minutes at the New York Stadium. 

  173. Post update

    Aston Villa 0-1 Notts County

    Just the 69 league places between League Two Notts County and Premier League Aston Villa.

    Tim Sherwood will be drawing up the half-time riot act already to jump-start his side.

  174. Early upset alert

    Crystal Palace 0-1 Shrewsbury

    If you're surprised League One Shrewsbury have taken the lead at top-flight Palace then maybe you won't be after learning that they are unbeaten in seven games against the Eagles in all competitions, winning five and drawing two.
