Brothers Shola and Sammy Ameobi left it late to score the goals that saw Premier League Newcastle to a 2-0 League Cup second-round win at Morecambe on Wednesday.

It was a first win of the season for Magpies manager Alan Pardew, whose side set up a home tie with Leeds.

Everton had to come from behind to see off lower league Stevenage 2-1.

Luke Freeman put the visitors ahead in the 36th minute before on-loan Barcelona prospect Gerard Deulofeu managed to equalise on the stroke of half-time, but the Toffees were unable to stop the match going to extra-time.

Marouane Fellaini's goal five minutes from the end of extra time saw Everton to victory -- manager Roberto Martinez's first win at Goodison Park

Elsewhere Kenwyne Jones's scored a hat-trick as Stoke saw off third tier League One side Walsall 3-1

Aston Villa defeated Rotherham 3-0 thanks to goals from Andreas Weimann, Christian Benteke and Fabian Delph

Meanwhile goals from Nicky Maynard and Rudy Gestede saw 2012 finalists Cardiff to a 2-0 win at Accrington.
