The Millwall run in the League Cup is over for another year after the second round defeat against Nottingham Forest at the Den on Tuesday.

A late goal from Forest, when extra time was beckoning, ended Millwall’s League Cup hopes when the Lions were beaten two-one.

Forest were ahead at half time when Paterson followed up a saved effort to open the scoring 10-minutes before the break.

A brilliant Williams lob on Forest ‘keeper Henderson from 50-yards with 13-minutes to play looked to have done enough to give Millwall extra time but Veldwijk fired home with three-minutes left to win it for the visitors.

Here’s a round up of the League Cup action from the other matches played, with some still to take place.

Accrington V Burnley 19:45
Fulham V Middlesbrough 19:45
Morecambe V Bournemouth 19:45
Sunderland V Shrewsbury 19:45

Some very high scoring matches, with an upset or two as well with the biggest of Tuesday night being the West Brom exit to Northampton.

After an extra time two-two draw the match needed penalties with Northampton going through four-three with another penalty shootout needed for Derby to see off Carlisle after a one-one draw at the iPro Stadium. The Rams eventually winning 14-13!

Premier League side Watford also bowed out after a two-one Vicarage Road defeat to League 1 side Gillingham but most other Premier League and Championship sides advanced and quite comfortably from potential banana skins really.
