Liverpool secured their place in the fourth round of the Carling Cup after goals from Daniel Agger and Lucas gave them a 2-1 victory over Crewe.

Denmark international Agger broke the deadlock in the 15th minute when he smashed home a free-kick from the edge of the penalty area before Michael O'Connor equalised from a Crewe corner 10 minutes later.

The impressive Jermaine Pennant supplied a pinpoint cross for Lucas to head home in the 58th minute while Crewe goalkeeper Steve Collis twice denied substitute Fernando Torres.

Jordi Gomez fired Swansea into the fourth round with a 1-0 win against 10-man Cardiff in a feisty all-Welsh affair at the Liberty Stadium.

The Bluebirds, who had Stephen McPhail sent off for two bookable offences, were left to rue a host of wasted first half opportunities as Roberto Martinez's men edged a frenetic derby clash.

Gomez's curled a 20-yard free-kick past Peter Enckelman after 57 minutes to give the Swansea faithful bragging rights in the first competitive encounter between the sides since April 1999.

Andy Robinson scored an injury-time winner as Leeds defeated fellow League One side Hartlepool 3-2 at Elland Road.

The visitors were twice ahead through Andy Monkhouse (2) and Joel Porter (33), but Leeds hit back both times to equalise, Robert Snodgrass (14) and Enoch Showunmi (58) on the scoresheet.

The game looked set for extra-time before Robinson curled an effort into the top corner.
