On Sunday, Brentford beat Wycombe on penalties in the first match at their new stadium to set up a second-round trip to Southampton. The Bees defender Ethan Pinnock headed in the first goal at the Brentford Community Stadium but his poor pass allowed Daryl Horgan to equalise for the Championship newcomers.

In the shootout, Luke Daniels saved Scott Kashket’s spot-kick to give Brentford the advantage, and Marcus Forss scored to earn a 4-2 win on penalties.
