Mallik Wilks scores for Hull City
Mallik Wilks spent three years at Leeds before joining Hull this year

League One Hull City are through to the third round of the Carabao Cup following a penalty shootout victory over Leeds United despite conceding a stoppage-time equaliser.

Ezgjan Alioski cancelled out Hull’s 1-0 lead in the 93rd minute but missed his spot kick in the shootout, as did team-mate Jamie Shackleton.

Hull defender Alfie Jones scored the winning penalty as the shootout finished 9-8, setting up a tie with Premier League side West Ham at London Stadium in the week commencing 21 September.

Ex-Leeds striker Mallik Wilks had earlier scored the opener for Hull inside five minutes, his shot from the edge of the area taking a deflection past the helpless Kika Casillas.

Wilks was particularly impressive throughout, linking up with George Honeyman in the first half to force Casillas into several smart saves.

Keane Lewis-Potter came close with a curling effort for Hull, while Greg Docherty and Billy Chadwick had shots parried away and James Scott’s flick rolled inches wide of the post in the second half.

Leeds struggled to break down Hull’s resilient defence and Alioski’s goal was just their second shot on target.

Winger Alioski fired into the roof of the net following a scramble in the box in the dying seconds to leave Hull’s players crestfallen, but the Tigers recovered to prevail on spot-kicks.

Leeds have now been eliminated at the second-round stage at Elland Road in each of their three seasons under manager Marcelo Bielsa, losing on penalties in the last two campaigns.
