West Brom breezed past Harrogate 3-0 to book their spot in the Carabao Cup third round on Wednesday night.

Rekeem Harper, Hal Robson-Kanu and Callum Robinson struck as the Baggies avoided an upset on a routine win against their Sky Bet League Two visitors.

Gutsy Town battled well but were ultimately undone by three moments of quality from their Premier League hosts.

Simon Weaver's side made a vibrant start, determined to pin Albion back, but the hosts put them in their place with two goals in four minutes.

The Baggies had shown little attacking threat before Harper, after 18 minutes, collected a poor clearance 30 yards out.

The midfielder turned away from George Thomson and Josh Falkingham before drilling a low strike into the corner.
