Carabao Cup: Crewe Alexandra 1-1 Fleetwood Town (3-4 pens)

Fleetwood's Ashley Hunter sealed a 4-3 penalty shoot-out win at Crewe after the two sides drew their Carabao Cup first round tie at Gresty Road.

Having made eight changes League One Fleetwood still impressed, but Ryan Wintle got the opener for Crewe after Town spurned a number of early chances.

Rangers loanee Jason Holt levelled from the edge of the box after the break.

Hunter sent the goalkeeper the wrong way to win the shootout after James Jones and Perry Ng missed for Crewe.
