Leko has played youth football for England up to U19 level

Jonathan Leko and Kyle Edwards scored their first West Brom goals as the Championship side beat Mansfield to reach the Carabao Cup third round.

Leko finished from close range on 26 minutes after Oliver Burke raced past a static defence and squared the ball.

League Two Mansfield equalised midway through the second half when Neal Bishop fired in from outside the box.

It took just six minutes for Albion to regain the lead, as Edwards cut into the area before lashing the ball in.

Mansfield came close to equalising during a frantic finale but West Brom held on to maintain their 100% record against the Stags.
