New­cas­tle out, Ever­ton safe

The Nation - - SPORT -

New­cas­tle’s mis­er­able start to the sea­son suf­fered an­other blow with a dra­matic late 3-1 de­feat to Cham­pi­onship side Not­ting­ham For­est yes­ter­day (Thai­land time) to crash out of the League Cup in the sec­ond round.

There was no such strife for Premier League high-fliers Ever­ton and Wat­ford, who con­tin­ued their un­beaten starts to the cam­paign with vic­to­ries over Rother­ham and Read­ing re­spec­tively.

One goal from Gylfi Sig­urds­son and a dou­ble from Do­minic Calvert-Lewin eased Marco Silva’s Ever­ton into the next round with a 3-1 win at Good­i­son.

Wat­ford, joint top of the Premier League with three wins from three, fielded a much-weak­ened team at Read­ing but still ran out 2-0 win­ners.

Mill­wall also reached round three af­ter twice com­ing from be­hind to beat Ply­mouth 3-2.
