Tammy Abraham's extra-time strike sees Bristol City beat Scunthorpe in EFL Cup

Substitute Tammy Abraham scored the extra-time goal which earned Bristol City a 2-1 win against Scunthorpe and a place in the EFL Cup third round.

Bobby Reid had given City a first-half lead, only for Josh Morris to level after the break before Abraham grabbed the late winner at Glanford Park.

Scunthorpe keeper Luke Daniels saved his side three times in the first half hour, tipping over Luke Freeman's shot and keeping out Aden Flint's header.

Daniels then blocked Callum O'Dowda's shot with his leg before home captain Stephen Dawson cleared a Derrick Williams shot off the line.

But 10 minutes before the break Reid broke the deadlock when he shot home from 12 yards.

With almost an hour gone Williams tripped Dawson in the area and Morris equalised from the penalty spot.

Charlie Goode cleared off the line from Abraham before the substitute settled the tie in City's favour after 96 minutes when he shot into the roof of the net following a pass by Mark Little.
