Carabao Cup round-up: Saido Berahino ends 913-day drought, West Ham avoid Wimbledon shock, Leeds suffer first defeat under Marcelo Bielsa

28 Aug

Saido Berahino’s first goal for two-and-a-half years and a comical 97th-minute own-goal from Juninho Bacuna helped Stoke shock Premier League Huddersfield 2-0 and advance to the Carabao Cup third round.

The £12million striker had gone 913 days without finding the back of the net, but his 53rd-minute headed finish at the bet365 Stadium ended his goal-drought.

Berahino finally scored

And in the final minute of injury-time debutant Bacuna shanked his attempted clearance and only succeeded in scoring in his own net.

Elsewhere, second-half goals from Issa Diop, Angelo Ogbonna and Javier Hernandez dug West Ham out of a hole as they beat ten-man AFC Wimbledon 3-1.

West Ham avoided an embarrassing defeat

Bottom of the Premier League after three straight defeats, they had fallen behind after less than a minute and a half to a goal from Joe Piggott, who was playing non-league football last season.

Meanwhile, ten-man Preston inflicted the first defeat of Marcelo Bielsa’s reign as Leeds head coach with a well-deserved 2-0 victory.

Bielsa suffered his first defeat as Leeds boss

Daniel Johnson scored from the spot after Preston were awarded a penalty inside a minute and the visitors shrugged off Ryan Ledson’s straight red card to double their lead on the stroke of half-time through Brandon Barker’s stunning solo effort.
