new balance

GOAL! Luton 2-0 Gillingham (Doughty 28). Alfie Doughty rounds off a magnificent training-ground free-kick routine by whipping into the top-left corner from distance.

GOAL! Portsmouth 0-1 Peterborough (Ajiboye 29). David Ajiboye pops up in the middle of a penalty-box stramash to slot.

GOAL! Wolves 2-0 Blackpool (Silva 25). Fabio Silva doubles Wolves’ lead in this clash of grand old names infused with 1950s-style glamour.

GOAL! Stoke 2-1 Rotherham (Morrison 22). One effort on target for Rotherham, one goal. Sean Morrison bangs in a header from a corner.

GOAL! Bolton 1-0 Middlesbrough (Charles 23). More misery for Boro, courtesy of Dion Charles. Too early to say Michael Carrick’s coat now hangs on a shoogly peg?

GOAL! Wycombe 0-1 Sutton (O’Brien 19). Wycombe had started quickly, but it’s the visitors who take the lead at Adams Park through Aiden O’Brien.

GOAL! Fulham 1-0 Tottenham (Van de Ven og 19). Tom Cairney dances his way down the left, twisting Davinson Sánchez’s blood. His low, hard cross-cum-shot is deflected into his own net by Micky van de Ven.

GOAL! Stoke 2-0 Rotherham (Mmaee 18). Ryan Mmaee doubles Stoke’s lead in short order.

GOAL! Reading 1-0 Ipswich (Williams og 2). A fast start for the Biscuitmen in this 8pm kick-off. There’s some bagatelle in the Ipswich box, and Brandon Williams accidentally bundles into his own net after just 74 seconds of his full Ipswich debut. The only way is up.

GOAL! Wolves 1-0 Blackpool (Kalajdzic 10). Sasa Kalajdzic scored a late winner at Everton last weekend; having thus located his mojo, he’s notched another goal early doors tonight. A bouncing, bobbling bomb from the edge of the box.

GOAL! Exeter 1-0 Stevenage (Hartridge 5). Alex Hartridge heads a rare goal home from a corner. It’s his first in three seasons.

GOAL! Birmingham 0-1 Cardiff (Colwill 3). Rubin Colwill steers a low left-wing cross into the bottom right. Cute goal and a fast start for the Bluebirds.

GOAL! Plymouth 1-0 Crystal Palace (Waine 6). Ben Waine sweeps home from close range to give Roy Hodgson something to think about.

GOAL! Stoke 1-0 Rotherham (Burger 2). Wouter Burger volleys home to give Stoke a flying start.

GOAL! Luton 1-0 Gillingham (Brown 2). Luton are back at Kenilworth Road, and it’s taken them less than 120 seconds. Just 96 in fact. Jacob Brown sends a shot in from the edge of the box.

GOAL! Wrexham 0-1 Bradford (Smith pen 3). What looks like a garden-variety shoulder charge is penalised by a penalty. Preposterous, but there it is. Tyler Smith lashes it in.

GOAL! Swansea 1-0 Bournemouth (Grimes pen 9). An early goal in the early kick-off, and the Swans lead through a Matt Grimes penalty, awarded for handball and whistled brilliantly into the top-left corner. No saving that one.

There will be goals. But in lieu of early net-bothering League Cup action, allow us to take you for a meander down Memory Lane, via Nostalgia Boulevard and Reminiscence Parkway.

Tonight’s matches in the EFL Cup, formerly known as the Football League Cup, currently known as the Carabao Cup for sponsorship reasons, and formerly sponsored by the Milk Marketing Board, Littlewoods, Rumbelows, Coca-Cola, Worthington’s, Carling and Capital One, will go straight to penalties if not decided during the regulation 90 minutes. No extra time.
