Emile Sinclair scored twice as League Two minnows Macclesfield topped the bill on a night of Carling Cup upsets with a 2-0 win over npower Championship Hull at the KC Stadium.

Sinclair, a 23-year-old former Nottingham Forest trainee, opened the scoring in the 17th minute and completed a famous victory for the visitors in the 59th minute when he netted his second.

Fellow League Two sides Morecambe, Shrewsbury, Northampton and Barnet joined Macclesfield in overcoming Championship opposition away from home in normal time.

Newly-promoted League One side Bury joined in the upsets as they coasted to a 3-1 win over Coventry at Gigg Lane. Andy Bishop cancelled out Roy O'Donovan's early strike before Ryan Lowe hit a match-winning double late on.

Simon Grayson's Leeds narrowly avoided embarrassment in their West Yorkshire derby with Bradford at Elland Road, twice falling behind before Ramon Nunez's second goal of the night in the 75th minute edged them a 3-2 win.

Jeffery Schlupp scored a hat-trick as Leicester eased to a 4-1 win at Rotherham while Southampton beat Torquay by the same score. An Ashley Barnes penalty saw Brighton home against Gillingham.

Other Championship winners in normal time were Millwall, who won 1-0 at Plymouth, Doncaster, who beat Tranmere 3-0, and Middlesbrough, who coasted to a 3-0 win at Walsall with a hat-trick from Marvin Emnes.
