Championship club Leeds United scraped past League One Fleetwood Town on penalties in the EFL Cup first round.

Fleetwood, managed by former Leeds boss Uwe Rosler, led through Aaron Holloway before Marcus Antonsson’s close-range finish forced extra-time.

Chris Wood then put Leeds ahead from the spot before an unmarked Ashley Hunter sent the game to penalties.

After nine successful spot kicks, Robert Green saved from Eggert Jonsson to give Leeds victory in the shootout.
