Teenager Billy Waters scored his first senior goal as Crewe Alexandra beat fellow League One club Barnsley 2-0 in the first round of the League Cup.

The 19-year-old had earlier failed to convert Matt Tootle's cross but turned in Liam Nolan's shot for the opener.

Sam Winnall's header forced a superb save from Crewe goalkeeper Ben Garratt.

Captain Tootle, who had a penalty saved in Saturday's defeat at Fleetwood, collected a lay-off from Waters to fire in a second for the Alex.

It was a happy return to Oakwell for Crewe manager Steve Davis, who spent seven years as a Barnsley player between 1991 and 1998.

The two sides meet again in League One on Saturday.
