Highlights: QPR 3-3 Robins (5-4 penalties)

Strikes from Famara Diédhiou, Jack Hunt and Liam Walsh weren’t enough to see City through to the second round of the Carabao Cup, with QPR holding their nerve in a penalty shootout.

Supporters witnessed a six-goal thriller with the scores poised at 3-3 after 90 minutes at the Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium.

But Diédhiou and Niclas Eliasson couldn’t convert from 12 yards before two big saves from Daniel Bentley took it to sudden death, though Bailey Wright’s decisive effort was saved.

Lee Johnson's men host the Rs at Ashton Gate on Saturday in the Sky Bet Championship, with tickets on general sale.
