Cheltenham Town 1-0 Charlton Athletic

Harry Pell's goal saw League Two Cheltenham Town beat League One side Charlton in the EFL Cup first round.

Both teams had disallowed goals early on, with the Addicks' Nicky Ajose and the Robins' Danny Wright offside.

The home side went ahead when Daniel O'Shaughnessy's long throw-in was flicked on by Wright, allowing Pell to finish against his former club.

Dan Holman went close late on for Cheltenham, who held on to progress to the next round.
