Billy Kee’s last-minute strike saw Accrington dump Championship Preston out of the Carabao Cup with a dramatic 3-2 win at the Wham Stadium.

Stanley, who opened their League Two campaign with a 3-1 win over Colchester on Saturday, went ahead through defender Ben Richards-Everton in the 20th minute.

Preston, under new boss Alex Neil and on the back of a 1-0 home league win over Sheffield Wednesday, equalised through Jordan Hugill in the 70th minute.

Jordan Clark looked to have won it for Stanley with just four minutes left, only for Hugill to strike again with 90 minutes up.

However, there was still time for substitute Kee to find a winner, converting Tom Dallison’s cross to secure a memorable victory.

Che Adams netted a hat-trick as Birmingham swept into the second round with a 5-1 win over Crawley.

On loan Bristol City forward Shawn McCoulsky scored twice in the space of six second-half minutes as League Two Newport won 2-0 at League One Southend.

There was more late drama at Oakwell, where Ryan Hedges scored a winner deep into stoppage time as Barnsley beat League Two Morecombe 4-3.

Tom Bradshaw and Ike Ugbo put the Tykes ahead early on, with Sam Lavelle reducing the deficit just before half-time.

Bradshaw headed in a third at the start of the second half and after a penalty from Michael Rose and Vadaine Oliver’s late effort appeared to have sent the tie into extra time, Hedges had the final say.

Ipswich won 2-0 at Luton with a goal in each half from Republic of Ireland forward David McGoldrick, while Norwich saw off Swindon 3-2 at Carrow Road.
