AFC Wimbledon 1-3 Brentford (aet)

Ollie Watkins and Justin Shaibu scored in extra-time as Brentford came from behind to beat League One AFC Wimbledon in the first round of EFL Cup.

The Bees had the better of the chances in the first half with Harlee Dean, Nico Yennaris and Romaine Sawyers all going close, but the hosts led through Paul Robinson's looping strike.

A fierce Sawyers shot deservedly drew the Championship side level.

Watkins and Shaibu earned victory with a goal in each period of extra-time.

Watkins curled in a fabulous 15-yard strike in time added on in the first period.

And substitute Shaibu sealed a place in the second round with a low right-foot shot with a minute remaining.
