Accrington dump Preston out of Carabao Cup

Billy Kee’s last-minute strike saw Accrington dump Championship Preston out of the Carabao Cup with a dramatic 3-2 win at the Wham Stadium.

Stanley, who opened their League Two campaign with a 3-1 win over Colchester on Saturday, went ahead through defender Ben Richards-Everton in the 20th minute.

Preston, under new boss Alex Neil and on the back of a 1-0 home league win over Sheffield Wednesday, equalised through Jordan Hugill in the 70th minute.

Jordan Clark looked to have won it for Stanley with just four minutes left, only for Hugill to strike again with 90 minutes up.

However, there was still time for substitute Kee to find a winner, converting Tom Dallison’s cross to secure a memorable victory.

Che Adams netted a hat-trick as Birmingham swept into the second round with a 5-1 win over Crawley.

David Davis and substitute Robert Tesche were also on target while Panutche Camara netted a late consolation for Crawley.

Bristol City made it two wins in a row when they coasted past League One side Plymouth 5-0 at Ashton Gate.

Jens Hegeler, Nathan Baker and Korey Smith put the Robins 3-0 up inside 20 minutes, Freddy Hinds slotted in a fourth after 39 minutes and substitute Jamie Paterson wrapped things up with 11 minutes left.

Grimsby’s clash with Derby was abandoned after just 19 minutes due to a waterlogged pitch at Blundell Park.

The Rams were leading 1-0 following a fifth-minute header by defender Richard Keogh before the game was temporarily halted after a downpour and then eventually called off by referee Trevor Kettle.
