Wycombe Wanderers won a penalty shootout for the second Carabao Cup round running as they saw off Forest Green Rovers following a 2-2 draw.

The Chairboys won 4-3 on spot-kicks as Ryan Allsop saved Paul Digby's effort.

Scott Kashket put Wycombe ahead in normal time before Dayle Grubb levelled.

Anthony Stewart latched on to Sam Saunders' effort off the post to restore Wycombe's lead, only for Carl Winchester to equalise again late on.

In the shootout, Rovers striker Christian Doidge was denied by Allsop, while James Montgomery kept out Saunders' attempt.

But Digby could not convert the chance to level at 4-4 and Wycombe advanced to the third round.
