Leeds United progressed into the third round of the Carabao Cup by winning a Yorkshire derby against League One side Barnsley at a packed Elland Road.

The hosts looked to be in control when Luis Sinisterra scored from 25 yards and Mateusz Klich converted a penalty.

But Barnsley pulled one back through Mads Andersen’s diving header and then missed a kick of their own when Callum Styles could only hit the post.

Klich scored again with a curling shot from 15 yards to secure Leeds’ victory.

Leeds made nine changes to their starting line-up from the 11 that started the 3-0 home win over Chelsea on Sunday, although they still took the lead after 20 minutes.

Colombia winger Sinisterra, making his first start for the club since a £21m summer move from Feyenoord, opened his account in style with a brilliant effort from outside the penalty area.

Klich doubled Leeds’ advantage 12 minutes later by scoring the penalty after the impressive Sinisterra had been brought down by Barnsley’s Conor McCarthy.

However, the Tykes, 16th in League One and who had won 1-0 away at Championship Middlesbrough in the first round, hit back.

Andersen produced a low diving header when unmarked following Josh Benson’s free-kick and the visitors had a chance to equalize when Styles was brought down by Adam Forshaw, but Styles missed the resulting penalty.

However, the home side restored their two-goal advantage in the 57th minute when Sinisterra’s cross was not cleared and Klich curled the ball past goalkeeper Jack Walton.
