Reading 3-3 Northampton FT(Northampton win 4-2 on penalties)

22.50: Brentford, Notts County and Peterborough may have caused upsets in their wins tonight, but the round (so far at least) belongs to Blackpool and Northampton.

Blackpool for being the first and thus only side to take a Premier League scalp and to Northampton for snatching the latest of equalisers and then dumping a side two leagues above them out on penalties.

Thank you for following what has been a goal packed evening, that's all from me.

22.46: The fairytale is complete. Northampton seconds from going out in extra-time have defeated Reading 4-3 on penalties. Unbelievable, an often over used word, but this really is.

22.41: Penalties already under way, and Northampton lead 2-1 after a couple of penalties from either side.

22.40: There was me thinking the night was over, what a story this would be if League Two Northampton can knock out Reading from here.

22.34: GOAL! Reading 3-3 Northampton

How late can you leave it?! This is the last attack of the game, Oskar Jansson the Northampton keeper has even gone up for it, but it's Reading's Matt Mills who turns from hero to zero after scoring an own goal in the fifth minute of stoppage time. Penalties it is.

22.32: Just Reading and Northampton still playing, we are in stoppage time in extra-time any time for another fairytale come back from Town?

22.31: Portsmouth prevail though winning 4-3 on penalties, Richard Hughes converting the winning penalty.

22.27: Penalties are being missed all over the place at Fratton Park, Score's are 3-3 and we are in to sudden death.

22.25: Blackpool are the first Premier League side out then, falling to the Mk Dons in what was a fantastic game.

22.23: GOAL! Reading 3-2 Northampton

Against the run of play Matt Mills has fired the home side in front at extra-time, just five minutes left for Town to hit back.

22.22: GOAL! Wolves 2-1 Southend

Richard Stearman has won it with what is the last kick of the game in extra-time and that is the heartbreak to end all heartbreaks for Southend.

22.20: Preston have also held on, and are probably  fortunate to escape with a win, North End's class with the winner the differnce between the two sides.

22.18: Ipswich Town won't need penalties though, Norris' goal has seen them through in extra time at Crewe.

22.16: Looks like three games are heading for penalties then, the drama just doesn't stop in the Carling Cup.

22.15: Portsmouth and Palace have gone to penalties at Fratton Park.

22.13: Always happens when I complain about lack of goals doesn't it.

Not enough: Charlie Adam scored a penalty but could not prevent his Blackpool side form crashing out at MK Dons



22.10: GOAL! MK Dons 4-3 Blackpool

Lewis Guy beats the offside trap to put the Premier League side on the brink of an early cup exit. What  a game that is!

22.09: GOAL! Bradford 1-2 Preston

Heartbreak for Bradford as Keith Tracey smashes a half volley home to probably spare the Championship side's blushes with just ten minutes to go.

22.07: Looks like we are on rations for goals now, penalties are beckoning in five games here.

22.02: No other goals in extra-time so far, sides are probably knackered to be honest especially at MK Dons where it all happened within a mad five minutes in that crazy second half.

21.54: GOAL! Crewe 0-1 Ipswich

A poor game but a sweet left effort from David Norris gives Ipswich the advantage.

21.53: Edgar Davids watch.he has gone off, it was a surprise he even started having thought to be two weeks away from match fitness, but he did last 80 minutes.

21.29: GOAL! Blackburn 3-1 Norwich

Jens Berthal-Askou gives Norwich hope but Mame Diouf seems to be the ultimate difference in that one.

Too strong: Stoke edged out Shrewsbury Town, winning by a single goal

21.46: I thought the first-half goal rush was mad, that was incredible, have to feel for Oxford conceding so late at West Ham, it was coming though.

21.43: GOAL! Blackburn 3-0 Norwich

A hat-trick for Mame Diouf who headers home in what has been a marvelous display from the youngster.

This one counts! Jonathan Walters celebrates his first goal of the season after being denied a controversial effort against Spurs on Saturday

29.53: GOAL! Watford 0-1 Notts County

Ben Davies fires in a free-kick at Vicarage Road.

20.50: Half-time in the 8pm kick-offs no early second half goals in the 7.45pm but I remember the goal fest that erupted last time I said that.

20.47: Dramatic start to the second half at Elland Road where Luciano Becchio has a great chance to score but can only see his effort blocked on the line, should have scored considering the area (IE the whole goal) he had to aim at.

20.45: Second half's starting to get underway, no games are dead and buried yet, I admit some need minor miracles (Shrewsbury, Colchester I'm looking at you) but it's all still wide open.

Cupset? Oxford United went in to half-time level with Premier League sideWest Ham

20.40: Morecambe are also holding their own against Burnley while League One side Tranmere lead Championship Swansea.

20.35 All half-time in the 7.45pm kick-offs. Blackpool are the only Premier League casualty right now but only Stoke and Sunderland have comfortable leads for the big sides.

20.07: GOAL! Brentford 1-1 Hull

Robbie Simpson curls in a free-kick from 25 yards out to level for the League One side at Griffin Park.

20.06: GOAL! Sunderland 1-0 Colchester

No such problems for Steve Bruce's side though as a Bolo Zenden ball is met by Darren Bent who heads home, the man just doesn't stop scoring.

20.02: GOAL! Morecambe 1-0 Burnley

Burnely once the king of giant killings in this competition find themselves a goal down courtesy of a Phil Jevons strike, and after Morecambe knocked Coventry out the last round could they be at it again?

20.00: 19 fixtures (soon to be 21) and only three goals in a quarter of an hour. I kind of expected more in truth

Big news from Europe though as Giampaolo Pazzini has scored two early goals to make it Sampdoria 2-0 W Bremen, it's 3-3 on aggregate and Samdpodria would go through on away goals.

19.55: Word from Fratton Park is Edgar Davids is playing left-back for Palace tonight, honestly any excuse to get him on the field.

19.53: GOAL! Brentford 0-1 Hull

Wigan have got their season up and running, new man Steve Caldwell looks to have got it but it may go down as a Sam Collins own goal.

19.46: GOAL! MK Dons 1-0 Blackpool

Blackpool who have made 10 changes find themselves a goal down thanks to a strike from Sam Baldock.

19.45: Still searching for team news from Vicarage Road, but matches underare way.

19.30: Good evening, round two of the Carling Cup is upon us which means the arrival of the big boys from the Premier League.

None of last seasons Euro qualifiers play in this round though, with Chelsea, Manchester United, Arsenal, Tottenham, Manchester City, Aston Villa and Liverpool already in the hat for Round three.

That doesn't mean we don't have any potential 'cupsets' this evening, with 21 games being played tonight, good ol' law of averages should spring up a surprise somewhere.

Team news from all the major games on the way as soon as I get it. Until then (and after) don't forget to email me your thoughts on tonights action at dan.ripley@dailymail.co.uk
