Allnigeriasoccer.com's round-up of Nigerian players that were in action for their respective clubs in the second round of the Carabao Cup on Wednesday, September 16.

Fulham are into the third round of the competition where they will face Fisayo Dele-Bashiru's Sheffield Wednesday after beating Ipswich Town 1-0 courtesy of Aleksandar Mitrovic's header.
 
Fulham's Nigerian trio Sylvester Jasper, Ola Aina and Josh Onomah who have been handed first team squad numbers were all left out of the matchday 18.

Let's go to The Hawthorns. It was a straightforward evening for West Brom who thrashed Harrogate 3-0; Rekeem Harper, Hal Robson-Kanu and Callum Robinson the scorers.

The Baggies' Super Eagles defender Semi Ajayi watched proceedings from the bench for the entirety of the game.

Elsewhere, Alex Iwobi was not in the Everton matchday squad against Salford City, the second consecutive game he has not been considered for selection by manager Carlo Ancelotti.

It finished 3-0 with Michael Keane, Gylfi Sigurdsson and Moise Kean finding the net for Everton.

The 18-year-old center forward Caleb Chukwuemeka went the distance on his full debut for Northampton Town as they fell to a 4-0 defeat at the hands of Bristol City at Ashton Gate.

Chris Martins gave the Robins the lead at the break, then Kasey Palmer doubled the advantage in the 48th minute, before Antoine Semenyo and Palmer added more gloss to the scoreline in the final eight minutes.

At Elland Road, summer signing Josh Emmanuel was an unused substitute for Hull City who beat Leeds United on penalties after a 1-1 draw at the end of ninety minutes. 

Mallik Wilks saw his fifth minute goal cancelled out by Ezgjan Alioski in the 90th minute.

Former Arsenal schoolboy Nathan Tella lasted 84 minutes on his full debut for Southampton as they were beaten 2-0 by Championship side Brentford at St. Mary's Stadium.

The Bees advanced to the next round thanks to first half goals from Christian Noergaard and Joshua Dasilva.
