Newcastle United escape League Cup shock, Luis Sinisterra stars for Leeds United


Chris Wood of Newcastle United scores their team's second goal during the Carabao Cup Second Round match between Tranmere Rovers and Newcastle United at Prenton Park on August 24, 2022 in Birkenhead, England. 

Big-spending Newcastle survived a shock when they had to come from a goal down to defeat fourth-tier Tranmere 2-1 in the League Cup second round on Wednesday.

Elliott Nevitt gave Tranmere the lead before Jamaal Lascelles levelled before half-time.

Chris Wood headed in the Newcastle winner in the 52nd minute to set-up a home third round clash against Premier League rivals Crystal Palace.

Leeds put out third division Barnsley 3-1 with Colombian international Luis Sinisterra scoring his first goal for the Premier League side since his £22.5 million move from Feyenoord.

He then won the penalty for Mateusz Klich to convert before Barnsley pulled a goal back from a Mads Andersen diving header.

Callum Styles missed a penalty for Barnsley while Klich put the result beyond doubt.

Premier League Brighton eased to a 3-0 win at third-tier Forest Green while Bristol City claimed a 3-1 win at Wycombe.
