    Right, myself and Rob need a lie down

    That was frantic, but great fun.

    Until Thursday, goodbye!

  2. 34 ties down, one to go

    Sunderland v Sheff Wed (Thursday, 19:45 BST)

    So, Aston Villa, Middlesbrough and Exeter City are among the 34 teams who have booked their places in the second round of the Carabao Cup.

    There is just one tie left to play in the first round, when Sunderland host Sheffield Wednesday on Thursday evening.

    The draw for round two will take place ahead of that clash at the Stadium of Light.

    Former Wolves and Ipswich boss Mick McCarthy and ex-England winger Chris Waddle will be plucking the balls out of the hat just after 19:00 BST.

    Wycombe 1-1 Northampton (7-6 pens)

    Wycombe keeper Yves Ma-Kalambay saves from Jordan Turnbull.

    It's all over at the Hawthorns after one of tonight's two late kick-offs. OIiver Burke's slender goal is enough for the Baggies to go through to round two.

  8. Middlesbrough win on penalties

    Middlesbrough 3-3 Notts County (4-3 pens)

    Exeter 1-1 Ipswich (4-2 pens)

    Exeter fans

    On-loan Ipswich midfielder Trevoh Chalobah smashes a mile wide of the left-hand upright.

    That allows Lee Martin to step up and send the League Two Grecians through.

    Teddy Bishop had earlier missed for Town.

  11. Macclesfield win on penalties

    Macclesfield 1-1 Bradford (4-2 pens)

    League Two Macclesfield have beaten League One Bradford on spot kicks.

    Yeovil 0-1 Aston Villa

    Aston Villa are through to the second round.

    Conor Hourihane's second-half goal was enough for them to win at Huish Park.
