The hosts took the lead with a headed goal from Danny Ings, but Derek Asamoah soon netted an equaliser for the visitors.

The 6,000 travelling fans cheered "Keith Curle's Blue and White Army" as the game went to a penalty shootout after a stalemate in extra time.

Both sides missed two penalties before Bastien Hery's shot was saved by the Reds goalkeeper Adam Bogdan, securing the tie for the Premier League giants. Liverpool face Bournemouth in round four next.
