Carling Cup Round 2 Roundup

August 25, 2009

No big ‘shocks’ in today’s 2nd round ties.

Portsmouth got their first win of the season by thrashing Hereford United 4-1. Goals from Piquionne, Utaka, Krancjar, and Hughes securing Pompey’s place in the next round.

Blackburn saw off League 1 side Gillingham with goals from David Dunn, David Hoilett and Morten Gamst Pedersen. Gillingham scored through a Simeon Jackson penalty.

Hull City also saw off League 1 opposition in the way of Southend United. A 3-1 win saw Jozy Altidore claim his first goal for the Club, and other strikes for youngster Tom Carney and Geovanni gave Phil Brown’s men the win. Franck Moussa scored for Southend.

Burnley scraped past Hartlepool with a 2-1 victory after extra time. Steven Fletcher scored both the goals for Owen Coyle’s side, but a brave effort from League 1 Hartlepool.

Birmingham City and Bolton Wanderers were other PL teams to make it through to the third round draw. The Blues saw off the challenge of Southampton, a potentially tricky tie, while Bolton beat Tranmere Rovers with a Mark Davies strike.

Wolves have seen off Swindon Town, but just. 0-0 after normal time, and extra time, but Wolves won 6-5 on penalties.

West Ham United beat Millwall 3-1 after extra time, but the Football was overshadowed by severe crowd trouble outside the ground. Update to follow. Junior Stanislas got the late goal for the Hammers in normal time after Neil Harris’s opener. Stanislas then netted from the spot in extra time before Zavon Hines rounded off the performance with a 3rd.

Other 2nd Round results:
Peterborough United 2-1 Ipswich Town
Port Vale 2-0 Sheffield Wednesday
Preston NE 2-1 Leicester City
QPR 2-1 Accrington Stanley
