Tuesday Recap

Forest Green, who finished fifth in League Two last term, achieved one of the performances of the round by eliminating Charlton at the Valley. Shawn McCoulsky was the hero in the penalty shootout for Rovers after neither side could find the back of the net in normal time.

Goalkeeper Joe Wollacott was making his debut for Forest Green, and the stopper saved Jake Forster-Caskey's penalty at the death.

The winners hailed the debutant:

MAN OF THE MATCH... Clean sheet ✅ Two penalty saves ✅ Through to the next round ✅ Not a bad debut @JJWollacott, keep it up! #WeAreFGR https://t.co/EOaAxe4EJq

Crewe also claimed a major scalp with a shootout victory against Middlesbrough after a 2-2 draw. The Railwaymen had taken a two-goal lead in the match after Chris Porter broke the deadlock three minutes before half-time. Charlie Kirk doubled the advantage during injury time in the first half, and Boro were on the ropes.

However, the hosts hit back with two second-half goals. Ashley Fletcher hit the back of the net with 15 minutes remaining, and Mark Bola scored in the final minute to force penalties.

Lincoln's cup reputation continues to grow after a 1-0 win away at Huddersfield. The Terriers were in the Premier League last term, and Lincoln resided in League Two.

The Imps have become a formidable opponent under Danny Cowley, and they kept a clean sheet at the John Smith's Stadium. Harry Anderson scored 10 minutes into the second half to grab the win.
