    See you later.

  3. FULL-TIME

    Reading 3-1 Millwall

    That's that! The 19th tie tonight is complete as Reading beat Millwall to progress to round three.

  4. 'Players took their chance'

    Watford 2-3 Bristol City

    Bristol City assistant boss Dean Holden: "We're delighted for the young members of our side. We've got competition for places and we challenged the players coming into the squad to take that chance. They did that."

  7. Post update

    Brighton 1-0 Barnet

    Brighton boss Chris Hughton: "It was a tough game. They are very well organised. They have started their season well and they made it tough for us.

    "We had a nice balance of giving the young ones an opportunity and given those that have been part of the squad and needed a run out."

    Too many changes?

    Mark Farley: Why ask a club to name a squad at the start of season if they can't utilise it? It's good management.

    Andrew Neil: Most of the 'superstars' probably started their club career as a starter in an EFL cup game or similar. It helps develop talent.

  9. Post update

    Reading 2-1 Millwall

    Ten minutes left and Reading are in control. All it takes is one goal for Millwall though...

  10. 'We've taken it seriously'

    Accrington 1-3 West Brom

    West Brom boss Tony Pulis clearly wants a good run in the EFL Cup. He made just four changes and was rewarded with a comfortable win.

    "We've taken the competition seriously," he said. "It gives us a chance to get to Wembley. I've ben fortunate to take Stoke there and it would be lovely to do that with West Brom."

  11. GOAL - Reading 2-1 Millwall

    George Evans (105 mins)

    Advantage Reading! George Evans thumps an effort into the top corner right on the stroke of half time.

  12. Post update

    Reading 1-1 Millwall

    It's Reading doing the pressing at the moment as Mo Barrow bursts into the area but his shot is straight at the goalkeeper. Almost half-time in extra-time.

  13. Post update

    Leeds 5-1 Newport County

    Leeds boss Thomas Christiansen: "Newport County put in a good performance and made it difficult for us in the first half.

    "I had some strong words at half time, I wasn't happy with our performance. In the second half, our quality came through and I was very satisfied."

  14. Post update

    Reading 1-1 Millwall

    No messing about by either side as they promptly use their fourth sub.

    Leandro Bacuna is replaced by 16-year-old striker Danny Loader for Reading while Jed Wallace is on for Shane Ferguson for Millwall.

  15. Post update

    Crystal Palace 2-1 Ipswich

    Crystal Palace

    Crystal Palace boss Frank de Boer: "You're always waiting for that moment (the first goal), so I'm very pleased for the fans.

    "A lot of players showed that they are ready, so for that spirit I am pleased."

  16. Post update
