  1. GOAL – Millwall 0-1 Plymouth

  2. ‘Need to stay just one down’

    Nottingham Forest 1-0 Newcastle

    Stephen Warnock

    Ex-Liverpool defender on BBC Radio 5 Live

    Newcastle have sat off Forest and not shown any creativity so far. Rafael Benitez will probably be happy to get in with this scoreline at half time and have a strong word with them.


    Nottingham Forest 1-0 Newcastle

    Five minutes left in the first half and the Newcastle players look to the referee for a penalty after striker Yoshinori Muto appears to be clipped by Tendayi Darikwa.

    It’s clumsy, there is no contact on the ball but Jeremy Simpson waves play on.


  4. CLOSE!

    Reading 0-0 Watford

    Watford twice go close from a corner but neither Adrian Mariappa nor Ben Wilmot can find a way past Sam Walker in the Reading goal.

    Still all square.


    Millwall 0-0 Plymouth

    Millwall midfielder Shaun Williams goes down after a challenge in the box by Gary Sawyer. The New Den bays for a penalty but referee Darren England is unmoved and waves play on.

    Nottingham Forest 1-0 Newcastle

    Sam Byram has had a good game so far for Forest, but comes off worse in a 50-50 challenge and cannot continue.

    On comes Tendayi Darikwa in his place.

  7. Faultless Forest – well almost….

    Nottingham Forest 1-0 Newcastle

    Rob Nothman

    BBC Radio 5 live at the City Ground

    Forest have been impressive so far. Darly Murphy’s early goal
    was smartly taken and there’s been plenty of promise from players like Sam Byram
    and Joe Lolley.

    Their only mistake was
    before kick off when the young children holding flags in a guard of honour for
    the players were soaked by one of the errant pitch sprinklers. Hope they’ve
    dried off.

  8. Get Involved – player puns

    Roberto Colombi: Low Ki performance from the Toon so far.

    Matt Parkman: He’s quite a silKI player this lad… would be unlucKI not to be playing at the weekend.

    Jon, Manchester: Schar just doesn’t look strong enough.

    First one to move the discussion on from Ki, Jon.

  9. CLOSE!

    Nottingham Forest 1-0 Newcastle

    Newcastle almost level.

    Kenedy’s corner is flicked on by Spanish striker Joselu, but neither Yoshinori Muto nor Federico Fernandez can finish the job at the far post.

    Joel Ucko: I have to admit that I am really impressed with Javi’s attitudes to this competition. He’s put a very strong team out despite 11 changes, which is only pushing the competition in the team even more.

    The more competition, the more consistency there is from the 11 chosen.

  11. CLOSE!

    Everton 1-0 Rotherham

    Everton should be two in front.

    Millers goalkeeper Lewis Price spills Sandro Ramirez’s vicious long-range strike and goalscorer Gylfi Sigurdsson somehow scoops the follow up over the bar.

  12. Post update

    Nottingham Forest 1-0 Newcastle

    Newcastle fell behind early on and have not looked like getting back into the contest.

    Forest goalkeeper Luke Steele has had a comfortable evening in the between the sticks so far.

  13. ‘Enterprising from Forest’

    Nottingham Forest 1-0 Newcastle

    Stephen Warnock

    Ex-Liverpool defender on BBC Radio 5 Live

    Forest are willing to run in behind and test defenders. They’ve been enterprising, bright and lively so far tonight.

    one end we’re seeing a lot of promise. At the other end we’re definitely not.

  14. Post update

    Reading 0-0 Watford

    Reading controlling the bulk of possession so far against Watford but chances have been few and far between in the opening 10 minutes.

    Spanish defender Marc Navarro, on his Watford debut, struck a long-range free-kick at the Reading goal but Royals goalkeeper Sam Walker saves easily.

  15. CLOSE!

    Millwall 0-0 Plymouth

    Shane Ferguson is the first to go close for the home team, latching onto Tom Elliott’s knockdown and shooting from distance. His half volley loops up off Ryan Edwards over Matt Macey and drops on top of the net.

  16. GOAL – Everton 1-0 Rotherham

    Gylfi Sigurdsson (28 mins)

    The Premier League side take the lead.

    Chris, Birmingham: Darlow, is it Ki you’re looking for?

    Thomas: Do you think coming to Newcastle was a bad Korea move for Ki?

    What have we started?

  18. Post update

    Reading 0-0 Watford

    Leandro Bacuna in action for Reading today, did you see his brother Juninho’s own goal for Huddersfield last night?

    Absolutely comical it was.

  19. CLOSE!

    Everton 0-0 Rotherham

    Everton have finally managed to work Rotherham goalkeeper Lewis Price, but it is a comfortable save from Gylfi Sigurdsson’s shot.

  20. ‘Excellent so far’

    Nottingham Forest 1-0 Newcastle

    Andy Reid

    Ex-Nottingham Forest and Tottenham midfielder on 5 live

    Forest have been excellent. They’ve wanted to play out from the back as well as play off Daryl Murphy’s knockdowns. The game plan has been very good so far and it’s exactly what I expected from them.

    They’ve not allowed Newcastle to get going.
