  3. Championship chumps

    Where do you start when trying to summarise that?

    Four-time League Cup winners Nottingham Forest losing 4-3 to Walsall perhaps? How about Burnley, just relegated from the Premier League, losing to League One Port Vale?

    Throw Oxford humiliating Brentford into the mix, plus Luton knocking out Bristol City, Notts County dumping out Huddersfield, Shrewsbury winning at Blackburn and Burton defeating Bolton and you have one very memorable night.

    Incredible.

  73. GOAL - Port Vale 1-0 Burnley

    Byron Moore (82 mins)

  74. GOAL - Nottingham Forest 1-3 Walsall

    Romaine Sawyers (79 mins)

    Funny goings ons at Brunton Park, but still no goals.

    Wycombe 0-1 Fulham

    Alex Kacaniklic celebrates goal

    Fulham are one the few Championship sides not on the wrong end of an upset as Alexander Kacaniklic puts them 1-0 ahead at League Two Wycombe.

    Charlton are another from the second tier enjoying themselves, although Dagenham's Christian Doidge has pulled the score back to 3-1. Surely just a consolation.

  87. Super Cup thriller

    Incredible scenes over in the Uefa Super Cup. Barcelona were 4-1 up but Sevilla have rallied to make it 4-3 with 15 minutes remaining.

    You can follow that game here.

    Ipswich 1-1 Stevenage

    A brilliant run from debutant left-back Myles Kenlock but his cross flashes untouched across the face of goal.

  93. GOAL - Bristol Rovers 1-1 Birmingham

    Ellis Harrison

    The Gas were in the non league last season but they are now level against Championship Birmingham as Ellis Harrison converts. A shock on the cards perhaps?

    An evening full of shocks and here is another one...

  97. Post update

  98. GOAL - Luton 2-0 Bristol City

    Paul Benson (59 mins)

    It really isn't a good night for Championship sides. Paul Benson finishes low to put League Two Luton 2-0 up at home to Bristol City.

    The Championship side are fielding almost a full-strength side, while Luton rang the changes...

  99. Post update

    Bolton 0-0 Burton

    And we are back under way in the 20:00 BST kick-off at Bolton. 

    Already a half chance for Burton to break the deadlock - Lucas Akins fires one over from the edge of the box.

  100. GOAL - Wolves 2-1 Newport

    Benik Afobe penalty (58 mins)

    Benik Afobe celebrates

    Luton 1-0 Bristol City

  107. GOAL - Brentford 0-4 Oxford

    Johnny Mullins (54 mns)

    John Mullins scores

    CUPSET and match. This one is done. Might as well throw in the towel and call it off early, ref. Brentford have been panned.

    Defender Johnny Mullins getting in on the act, stroking home from close range. A game to forget for Brentford goalkeeper Jack Bonham.

  108. Post update

    Sheff Wed 3-1 Mansfield

    And here's another Championship side who look safe to make the next round - Sheffield Wednesday increase their lead through Kieran Lee. The two-goal cushion restored.

  110. Post update

    Scunthorpe 1-1 Barnsley

    It is a game of spot-kicks at Scunthorpe. This time it is the hosts who score from 12 yards as Paddy Madden cancels out Josh Scowen's penalty for Barnsley minutes later. Extra time looming? They aren't the only ones with 15 games level at the moment. Late night anyone?

  111. Post update

    Cardiff 1-0 Wimbledon

    He was the brightest player in the first half and Sammy Ameobi's been threatening again already. The Newcastle loanee flashes another shot over the bar on his debut.

    Scunthorpe 0-1 Barnsley

    An early second-half goal for Barnsley as Josh Scowen scores from the penalty spot to give them a 1-0 lead at fellow third-tier side Scunthorpe. The Tykes had missed a penalty through Marley Watkins in the first half. Scunny goalkeeper Joe Anyon will be a relieved man not to see a card though.

  115. Post update

    Yeovil 0-2 QPR

    Marc Laird of Yeovil

    Does this count as one chance or two? 

    Stephen Arthurworrey's header hits the QPR bar not once, but twice. Still the Championship side looking comfortable with that lead though.

    Accrington 0-0 Hull

    Bright start from Championship side Hull at League Two Accrington Stanley (at the not-so-brilliantly named Wham Stadium). 

    But the hosts respond in kind with a lovely move of their own. Keep a close eye on this one if it's yet another upset you're after...

  122. Could be in for a late one..

    Man sleeping

    Article 13.4 of the Capital One rulebook states that an extra 30 minutes shall be played in the event of the scores being level after 90 minutes.

    If the extra period doesn't separate the sides, it goes to penalties.

  125. Post update

    Bolton 0-0 Burton

    Bolton have hit the woodwork three times already this half. 

    For some there's just no luck. Zach Clough is almost played in but can't bring the ball under his spell as Burton continue to hold out. 

    Can Burton build on that? Fortune is favouring the underdog so far...

  126. Shock, shock, shock

    Brentford

    So, a quick summary of that manic first 45 minutes.

    Championship sides Blackburn, Nottingham Forest, Brentford, MK Dons, Bristol City and Ipswich all trail to teams below them in the football league.

    A humiliating evening for a lot of football fans so far...

    And Rochdale grab one just before the break too - it's a screamer from summer signing Donal McDermott - curled into the top corner. 

  129. Post update

    Cardiff 1-0 Wimbledon

    What's been the difference between Cardiff and Wimbledon this first 45 minutes? A cracking  Craig Noone free-kick. The Championship side had been knocking and now they lead.

  130. Post update

    Rotherham 1-0 Cambridge

    Championship side Rotherham take the lead on the stroke of half-time as Jordan Bowrey heads home against the League Two side.

    A re-write on the team-talk for U's boss Richard Money.

  131. GOAL - Luton Town 1-0 Bristol City

    Jack Marriott (44 mins)

    And another Championship side are trailing... That makes six.

    Jack Marriott beats two Bristol City players in the penalty area and lashes home to put the League Two side ahead.

  132. Post update

    Sheff Wed 2-1 Mansfield

    Could that soon become six? Is there a comeback on the cards for League Two Mansfield? They've got one back anyway - Ryan Tafazoli scrambled it in off the post. 

    Another before the break would do very nicely.

  133. Post update

    Huddersfield 1-1 Notts County

    Five Championship sides are now trailing to lower league sides - yes FIVE...

    And another team from England's second tier are in a bit of trouble as Liam Noble levels for League Two Notts County at Huddersfield. 

    A stunning strike from a cross from the left as he finishes from the edge of the penalty area.

    A few red faces so far this evening...

  134. Post update

    Cardiff 0-0 Wimbledon

    Loan signing Sammy Ameobi has been impressing on his debut for the hosts tonight. Still no breakthrough there though - James Shea is equal to his latest effort.

  135. Post update

    Swindon 0-2 Exeter

    David Wheeler doubles Exeter's  lead at Swindon from close range. The League Two side on top against their loftier opponents.

    It looks like there will be no shock at  Charlton  though as Karlon Ahearen-Grant puts the Addicks 2-0 up at home to Dagenham and Redbridge - his first senior goal.

  136. Post update

    Accrington 0-0 Hull

    Josh Windass of Accington

    Another chance for Nikica Jelavic at Hull but Accrington are holding firm so far. Can they hang on for half-time? Just over five to play. 

  137. GOAL - MK Dons 0-1 Leyton Orient

    Dean Lewington own goal (36 mins)

    Unlucky. Early Championship leaders MK Dons go behind - the fifth one from that division to do so this evening - at home after Dean Cox's cross is diverted into his own net by skipper Dean Lewington.

    The League Two side cock-a-hoop!

  138. Post update

    Bolton 0-0 Burton

    This game got going a little later than the others tonight - a 20:00 BST kick-off - and it's the home side who've been leading the way. 

    Bolton have hit the woodwork three times already. So much for third time's a charm...

  139. Post update

    Swindon 0-1 Exeter

    Another shock on the cards as Alex Nicholls latches onto Tom Nichols' lay off and calmly finishes to put League Two Exeter 1-0 up at League One Swindon Town.

  140. Post update

    Ipswich 0-1 Stevenage

    A great chance for Ipswich to level almost straight away goes begging - Brett Pitman sees his shot go agonisingly wide after beating his man. 

    A goal on his debut? What a brilliant time it would have been to get it - just before half-time.

  141. Post update

    Nottingham Forest 1-2 Walsall

    Tyler Walker scores

    We have four Championship sides trailing to lower league sides but Nottingham Forest are putting up a fight at the City Ground.

    Remember ex-England defender Des Walker? Well his son, Tyler, bundles the ball home at the far post to halve their deficit against League One Walsall. 

    Elsewhere Murray Wallace fires Championship Huddersfield deservedly 1-0 ahead at home to League Two Notts County. 

  142. GOAL - Ipswich 0-1 Stevenage

    Christophe Berra OG (34 mins)

    A shock on the cards at Portman Road? League Two Stevenage take the lead through a Christophe Berra own goal . Dean Parrett's shot was saved but it came straight back in off Berra. 

    It's a very lucky one but they all count.

  144. GOAL - Blackburn Rovers 1-2 Shrewsbury

    Tyrone Barnett (32 mins)

    That didn't last long did it?

    Just seconds after Rovers equalise, Tyrone Barnett drills home a volley to put League One Shrewsbury side back ahead.

  145. Post update

    Blackburn Rovers 1 -1 Shrewsbury

    Sighs of relief from Blackburn Rovers fans as the Championship side level at home to League One Shrewsbury. Nathan Delfouneso is claiming the goal but that will surely go down as an own goal. Marcus Olsson's cross is deflected into the net by Liam Lawrence to make it 1-1.

    Wait a minute though...

  146. Post update

    Brentford 0-3 Oxford

    Danny Hylton celebrates goal

    Three early strikes but nothing since, Championship side Brentford will be pleased to have stemmed the flow of Oxford goals. The League Two side in the ascendancy and will be very pleased by their first half performance so far.

  147. Post update

    Accrington 0-0 Hull

    Piero Mingoia of Accrington Stanley

    Nikica Jelavic fires over the bar after Jason Mooney spills a corner. 

    Still honours even here - it's League Two v Championship (and Premier League last season) remember. Some very decent stuff from the hosts so far. 

  148. Post update

    Northampton 3-0 Blackpool

    Sixfields crowd may see six goals scored for the home side at this rate. 

    League One side Blackpool all over the shop as Sam Hoskins bags another for the League Two outfit.

  149. Post update

    Charlton 1-0 Dagenham and Redbridge

    League Two Dagenham and Redbridge have never won a League Cup tie and - this their ninth attempt - they haven't started well. Tony Watt finishes low to put Championship Charlton  1-0 ahead.

    Elsewhere, Championship Bristol City are on top at League Two Luton but haven't found a way through as of yet.

  150. Post update

    Cardiff 0-0 Wimbledon

    How are Wimbledon doing away to Championship side Cardiff? How's the beast getting on? 

    Jonathan Meades has gone closest for the away side - he's playing against his former club tonight - but Adebayo Akinfenwa's been lurking too.

    Perhaps the Championship isn't all that after all.

  160. Post update

    Yeovil 0-2 QPR

    Cruise control now for the Championship side. Jay Emmanuel-Thomas with a goal on his debut for QPR. 

    Surely that'll be that?

  161. Post update

    Ipswich 0-0 Stevenage

    Ipswich started stronger but the away side are piling on the pressure now, Jamie McCombe going very close indeed from a corner.

  162. GOAL - Nottingham Forest 0-2 Walsall

    Tom Bradshaw (14 mins)

    It looks as though Forest aren't going to make it five League Cup wins this season as Tom Bradshaw grabs his second for Walsall. Incredible scenes as the striker again turns the ball in from close range.

  163. GOAL - Wolves 1-1 Newport

    Nouha Dicko (16 mins)

    Championship side restore parity. as Nouha Dicko nets from close range. Can the League Two side respond?

  164. Post update

    Yeovil 0-1 QPR

    Great strength from Sebastian Polter - he bullies his way on goal before sliding one home. 

    No signs of an upset so far here then?

  165. GOAL - Nottingham Forest 0-1 Walsall

    Tom Bradshaw (11 mins)

    What is going on? Four-time League Cup winners Nottingham Forest are the latest to fall behind to lower league opponents. Tom Bradshaw taps home from close range at the far post to give Walsall the lead.

    Shocks galore...

  166. Post update

    Sheff Wed 1-0 Mansfield

  167. GOAL - Brentford 0-3 Oxford

    Kemar Roofe (12 mins)

    WHAT A GOAL!!! Brentford goalkeeper Jack Bonham is having an absolute 'mare tonight. 

    Again he comes out to meet the ball, heading it out from the edge of the area to around 40 yards out, Kemar Roofe takes a touch and lobs it into the net. 

    Superb technique. Brentford all over the place.

  168. Post update

    Ipswich 0-0 Stevenage

    Decent chance for the hosts as Brett Pitman flashes a header wide from Larsen Toure's cross - both players making their debuts tonight. 

  169. GOAL - Brentford 0-2 Oxford

    Danny Hylton (9 mins)

    Another for the visitors!! This is a real surprising scoreline so far. The Rotherham goalkeeper comes rushing out to clear the back, which ricochets off the onrushing Danny Hylton and into the net.

    Wasn't pretty, but the Oxford fans won't mind.

    Danny Hylton of Oxford
  170. GOAL - Blackburn 0-1 Shrewsbury

  175. Barrow boy

    Blackburn 0-0 Shrewsbury

    Gambia winger Modou Barrow could make his debut from the bench for Blackburn Rovers tonight - the 22-year-old joined on a three-month loan deal on Monday. Quick turnaround. 

    The Championship side have made nine changes but almost take the lead early on as Ben Marshall sees a shot deflected wide for a corner.

    Bradford

    Phil Parkinson and his Bradford side start their League Cup campaign at Bootham Cresent, looking to rekindle memories of their marvelous run to the final in 2013.

    Although they were soundly beaten by Swansea on that day, the Bantams rewrote history in reaching the showpiece.

    They one of only two fourth-tier league sides to have reached a League Cup final along with Rochdale in 1961-62.  

  181. Gayle force Robins?

    Luton v Bristol City (19:45 BST)

    Dwight Gayle

    Bristol City have been trending on Twitter today - something you don't often hear.

    The Championship new boys are reported to have had a £6m bid accepted for Crystal Palace striker Dwight Gayle.

    He won't be at Luton this evening... and if early reports are to believed he won't be at Ashton Gate any time soon either.

    John, London: I think for Wycombe fans there is no greater League Cup memory than our semi-final run under Paul Lambert in 2006-07. Especially getting a draw against league champions Chelsea in the first leg. Came not long after our FA Cup semi-final run too. I think we are overdue another....

  187. 'Beast Mode On'

    Cardiff v Wimbledon (19:45 BST)

    They call him 'The Beast'. Why? Well Adebayo Akinfenwa is 5ft 11in, weighs 16 stone, and can bench press 180kg (28 stone). 

    He's also the strongest player in the Fifa series of football video games, with a strength rating of 97 out of 100.

    BBC Sport profiled the 33-year-old striker after he scored for Wimbledon against Liverpool in last season's FA Cup.

    "Beast Mode On is a state of mind," he explained. "Beast Mode is about applying yourself and defying the limitations people put on you."  

    Akinfenwa graphic
  188. "Accrington Stanley? Who are they?"

    Accrington v Hull (19:45 BST)

  189. "Accrington Stanley? Who are they?"

    Accrington v Hull (19:45 BST)

    - "Milk? Ugh!"

    - "It's what Ian Rush drinks."

    - "Ian Rush?"

    - "Yeah. And he says if I don't drink lots of milk, when I grow up I'll only be good enough to play for Accrington Stanley."

    "Accrington Stanley? Who are they?" 

    - "Ex-accly."  

    Accrington Stanley milk advert

    As milk adverts go, the one featuring two Liverpool kids debating the benefits of the white stuff back in the 1980s is good enough to make the top one. 

    And there are indeed times when only milk will do - if you're a BBC Radio 5 live commentator then that time is now...
