Sheffield Wednesday 1 Mansfield Town 1 (Mansfield win 5-4 on pens): Stags reach Carabao Cup third round

Mansfield's Christy Pym made a couple of saves in the penalty shootout against Sheffield Wednesday

Christy Pym was the Mansfield Town hero as they pulled off a Carabao Cup penalty shootout win against Sheffield Wednesday at Hillsborough.

The Stags keeper made a series of saves in normal time to keep the league Two side in contention after Anthony Musaba headed Wednesday ahead.

Rhys Oates produced a superb equaliser with five minutes left to send the game to spot kicks.

Pym saved from Will Vaulks but Cameron Dawson also produced a stop from Will Swan to take it to sudden death.

After Aden Flint scored against his former club, Pym produced another terrific save to deny Liam Palmer and put Mansfield in the third round.

Wednesday are yet to win a game in conventional fashion this season, having scraped through the first round in this competition in a penalty shootout against Stockport and they have lost all four league games in the Championship in a poor start under Xisco Munoz.

For most of this game it looked like that run would end after Josh Windass crossed, Callum Patterson headed across goal, and Musaba applied the finish.

Windass then hit the bar and Pym produced fine saves to deny Michael Ihiekwe, Windass and Juan Delgado to keep the Stags alive.

Oates cut in from the left and curled in the equaliser and Mansfield kept their nerve in the shootout to progress.
