Chris Wood scores against old side, Burnley lose on penalies

League Cup round-up: Irish pair involved for Brighton

Burnley are seeking an explanation from their official betting partner Ladbrokes after the firm tweeted an offensive emoji aimed at players Chris Wood and Charlie Taylor.

He said: "It's a unusual business, football". Twenty-odd million they've made for a club [in transfer fees] and they get slaughtered.

"Maybe I got the changes wrong, but I was expecting a lot more from my players".

Mateusz Klich was fantastic in Leeds United's victory over Burnley in midweek, staking a claim to start upon the Whites' return to Championship action. "But Woody has done fantastically, walking on to our pitch and scoring, and again in the shootout".

While it looked like he had done enough to force extra time then and there, there was further drama, as Leeds re-took the lead in the fourth of six minutes of added time through a penalty of their own.

"There's never a lack of will and demand from the group, my only gripe is the amount of opportunities we created", said Dyche. He hit an incredible free kick into the top left and corner which sailed past the helpless grasp of former Preston North End keeper Andy Lonergan. That is where we're still shifting forward, that final moment of real quality.

About 2,900 Leeds fans ventured back over the Pennines happy after seeing their team prevail 5-3 on penalties.

Liverpool were not the only Premier League team to exit the Carabao Cup inside 90 minutes as Stoke and Huddersfield both fell to away losses at Bristol City and Crystal Palace respectively. I am very disappointed because this is a competition we wanted to do well in. "My expectations of him were fulfilled".
