WEST BROMWICH ALBION are safely through to the third round of the Carabao Cup after a 3-0 win over Harrogate Town, which featured a goal for Callum Robinson.

Just four minutes after being introduced as a 73rd-minute substitute, the Republic of Ireland international opened his account for the season to cap a comfortable victory for the Premier League side over the League Two newcomers.

Robinson, who recently completed a permanent move from Sheffield United following his loan spell at West Brom last season, tapped home from close range after being picked out by a Kyle Edwards cross from the left.

The home side were already in control at The Hawthorns thanks to first-half goals from Rekeem Harper and Hal Robson-Kanu.

Irish U21 international Dara O’Shea started in defence for the Baggies as they rebounded from Sunday’s 3-0 defeat to Leicester City.

Fellow Premier League side Southampton were eliminated by Championship outfit Brentford, who were 2-0 winners at St Mary’s thanks to goals from Christian Nørgaard and Joshua Dasilva.

Ireland strikers Shane Long and Michael Obafemi were both sprung from the bench for the Saints in the 84th minute, but youth international Will Smallbone was an unused substitute.

Leeds United also went out at the hands of Football League opposition, with former Cork City defender Sean McLoughlin scoring for Hull City in a penalty shootout that ended 9-8 in favour of the League One side.

Mallik Wilks had put Hull in front at Elland Road after just five minutes, but Ezgjan Alioski grabbed a last-gasp equaliser for the hosts to send the tie to penalties.

Michael Keane, Gylfi Sigurdsson and Moise Kean scored the goals in Everton’s 3-0 home win against Salford City. The Toffees kept Seamus Coleman on the bench, while ex-Dundalk midfielder Richie Towell started for the League Two side.

Alan Judge was the only member of Ipswich Town’s Irish contingent to play a part as they went down 1-0 at home to Fulham.

The Dubliner came off the bench in the 69th minute but was unable to help the Tractor Boys cancel out Aleksandar Mitrovic’s goal, which came on 38 minutes.

Irish-eligible goalkeeper Max O’Leary kept a clean sheet for Bristol City in the Championship club’s 4-0 win over League One outfit Northampton Town, for whom Kildare native Cian Bolger and ex-Ireland U21 international Michael Harriman both started.
