FULL TIME: Reading 2-2 Ipswich (Ipswich win 3-1 on penalties). In the other late shoot-out, Reading miss three of their spot kicks and the Tractor Boys trundle on!

FULL TIME: Salford City 1-1 Leeds United (Salford win 9-8 on penalties). Ashley hammers home, grabbing his second chance with both hands, and disappears into a delighted crowd! Leeds are out, Salford are through to the third round for the first time in their history, and this is the giant-killing story of the night!

Jamie Shackleton aims for the top right … but hits the underside of the bar. The ball sails away and Shackleton grimaces. Over to Ossama Ashley who aims for the bottom right … only for Karl Darlow to parry! But it’ll be retaken because the keeper was miles off his line. Darlow is booked, Ashley steps up again

Crysencio Summerville absolutely skelps his kick into the top left. The pressure now on Curtis Tilt who … should see his poor kick, a weak sidefoot towards the bottom left, saved. But Karl Darlow allows it to slip through his hands.

FULL TIME: Fulham 1-1 Tottenham (Fulham win 5-3 on penalties). Davinson Sanchez has his weak penalty saved. Kenny Tete, who had been off the pitch fixing his boots when Richarlison equalised, slams home the winning kick. The end of the Ange Postecoglou honeymoon already? Nope, let’s not be silly.
