Bournemouth 1-2 Cardiff

The Wales forward took seven minutes to open the scoring with a right-footed finish from the edge of the area after Peter Whittingham's pass.

Parry then cashed in on some sloppy defending to head into an empty net.

Striker Jo Kuffour gave Bournemouth hope on 28 minutes, outpacing Roger Johnson to fire into the bottom corner.

Brighton 4-0 Barnet

Adam Virgo scored two goals as Brighton comfortably defeated Barnet in the Carling Cup.

Virgo struck after 90 seconds, profiting on some slack defending to head home a Kevin McLeod corner.

Nicky Forster headed against the bar before Joe Tabiri missed for the Bees from inside the six-yard box.

Forster scored with a fierce strike, Virgo struck again with a powerful far-post header and Matt Richards smashed home a free-kick from 20 yards.

Bristol City 2-1 Peterborough

Bristol City striker Steve Brooker popped up to score a late winner for the second game in succession as they saw off Peterborough.

Brooker headed in a cross with five minutes left to complete a fine turnaround from Gary Johnson's hosts.

George Boyd had drilled Posh into the lead with a low 12-yard shot, before Jamie McAllister swung over a corner and Louis Carey nodded in to level.

Posh keeper Joe Lewis saved from Michael McIndoe before Brooker won it.

Bury 0-2 Burnley

Martin Paterson struck twice to send Burnley through to the second round of the Carling Cup at the expense of Bury.

The Northern Ireland international made it three goals in two games since his summer move from Shorpe.

Burnley started well and the Clarets grabbed a deserved lead when the unmarked Paterson turned in Christian Kalvenes' left-wing cross.

Burnley sealed it when Paterson converted the rebound after Wayne Brown denied Eagles in the 90th minute.

Chester 2-5 Leeds

Leeds United striker Jermaine Beckford hit a hat-trick in his side's Carling Cup first round hammering of Chester.

Leeds went two up through Beckford's close-range opener and Robert Snodgrass but Ryan Lowe pulled one back when his shot deflected in off Rui Marques.

Andy Robinson then scored in between Beckford's left-foot 20-yard stunner and a superb chip as Leeds raced out of reach inside the first 35 minutes.

Chester were soundly beaten but Lowe grabbed a second with a penalty.

Crewe 2-0 Barnsley

First-half penalties from midfielder Michael O'Connor and striker Anthony Elding were enough to see Crewe upset Championship side Barnsley.

O'Connor drilled home on 12 minutes after Tom Pope had been felled by Darren Moore in the box.

Barnsley almost got back on level terms, but Steve Collis turned Diego Leon's free-kick onto the bar.

Crewe wrapped up the win nine minutes before the break, Robert Kozluk fouling Byron Moore and Elding converting.

Exeter 1-3 Southampton

Two goals from David McGoldrick enabled Southampton to avoid a potential Carling Cup pitfall at Exeter.

Lee Holmes swept Saints ahead from 18 yards, and young striker McGoldrick drilled in a shot to double the lead.

Dean Moxey outjumped Saints keeper Bartosz Bialkowski to head Exeter back into contention.

McGoldrick clinched Saints place in the second round by slotting home an injury time penalty after being fouled by Danny Seabourne.

Gillingham 0-1 Colchester

Gillingham were left to rue a series of missed chances as Matt Heath's early strike proved decisive for Colchester.

Mark McCammon had already missed when clean through for the Gills when Heath struck, the summer signing from Leeds heading home from an inswinging corner.

Simeon Jackson almost equalised moments later, but his shot from distance was well parried by Dean Gerken.

Adam Miller went close with a free-kick and Jackson had two late chances, but Colchester's defence held out.

Grimsby 2-0 Tranmere

Tranmere's woeful League Cup record continued as they slumped to a 2-0 defeat to Grimsby at Blundell Park.

Ronnie Moore's side could not prevent themselves falling at the first hurdle four seasons in a row.

James Hunt fired the Mariners ahead after 20 minutes, pouncing after Martin Butler's close-range header was saved.

The victory was sealed by an own-goal from Tranmere defender Ben Chorley, who diverted Chris Llewellyn's low cross into his own net from six yards.

Hartlepool 3-0 Shorpe

Hartlepool produced a fine display to knock Nigel Adkins' side out in the first round of the Carling Cup for the second successive season.

Two goals in seven second half minutes put Hartlepool in command, Joel Porter glancing in a close-range header for the first on 51 minutes.

David Foley then made it two from close range after Porter's impressive run.

James Brown got the third after 76 minutes, firing in from the edge of the area after good work from Gary Liddle.

Huddersfield 4-0 Bradford

Gary Roberts' double saw Huddersfield storm into the Carling Cup second round with a thumping of neighbours Bradford.

After Jon Worthington headed them in front, Roberts opened his account by bursting past Graeme Lee to fire home.

Williams' free-kick extended Town's lead, and Roberts sealed victory by tapping home from close range.

Bradford should have taken an early lead, but new signing Michael Boulding toe-poked wide after keeper Matt Glennon spilled the ball.

Leicester 1-0 Stockport

A Steve Howard strike saw Leicester record two wins in a row for the first time since April 2007.

The former Derby man slid the ball home from six yards after a cross from the left by Joe Mattock on 36 minutes.

The Hatters were forced to play for 70 minutes with 10 men after Matty McNeil's straight red card for denying Howard a clear run on goal.

City were reduced to 10 men themselves after 85 minutes when Mattock was stretchered off.

Millwall 0-1 Northampton

Jason Crowe scored the only goal as Northampton defeated Millwall in the Carling Cup.

Northampton might have taken an early lead when Danny Jackman picked out Ryan Gilligan, but he hit the post.

Town struck after 16 minutes when Adebayo Akinfenwa dummied a cross from Liam Davis and Crowe converted.

Millwall came close to an equaliser but Mark Bunn denied Lewis Grabban just after the break and Chris Hackett struck the woodwork from 25 yards.

MK Dons 1-0 Norwich

League One newcomers MK Dons sprung a shock in dumping out Championship Norwich, thanks to Sam Baldock's goal.

Baldock, 19, raced on to Keith Andrews' pass to confidently clip the ball over Canaries' keeper David Marshall for his first career strike.

Darel Russell hit the post as Norwich, twice-winners of the League Cup, struggled to create enough chances.

Despite late Norwich pressure the Dons held on to give manager Roberto di Matteo his maiden win.

Notts County 1-0 Doncaster (AET)

Substitute Myles Weston delivered the knockout blow in extra-time as League Two side Notts County knocked Doncaster out of the Carling Cup at Meadow Lane.

Weston struck superbly into the net after 106 minutes following a neat exchange of passes with Jay Smith.

Ben Fairclough went close for County and Mike Edwards fired over from close-range before Weston won it.

Preston 2-0 Chesterfield

Neil Mellor scored in each half as Preston defeated Chesterfield in the Carling Cup at Deepdale.

Rochdale 0-0 Oldham (Oldham win 4-1 on penalties)

Lee Hughes made amends for a missed penalty in normal time to score the decisive penalty in the shoot-out.

The Oldham striker shot straight at Sam Russell in the 22nd minute after Rory McArdle was deemed to have fouled Dean Smalley in the area.

Rochdale were down to 10 men on the stroke of half time after Craig Davies headbutted Nathan Stanton.

But Oldham failed to make the extra man count and had to rely on penalties to dispatch their north west neighbours.

Shrewsbury 0-1 Carlisle

A Peter Murphy free-kick was enough to put Carlisle into the second round of the Carling Cup after a hard-fought win over Shrewsbury.

Murphy struck from the left-hand corner of the penalty area after 41 minutes to secure the win.

United were forced to defend for long spells with the Shrews enjoying the better of the second half.

Keeper Ben Williams was at full stretch to keep out a shot from Ben Davies, who also hit the bar with 10 minutes left.

Southend 0-1 Cheltenham

Cheltenham avenged their Carling Cup defeat to Southend in 2007 as Ben Gill's extra-time goal earned victory.

Gill struck in the 115th minute to secure Cheltenham's progress into the next round, stooping to head home off Steve Mildenhall's upright.

Swansea 2-0 Brentford

Shaun MacDonald struck in each half as Swansea City eased past 10-man Brentford in their first-round Carling Cup match at the Liberty Stadium.

The 20-year-old midfielder first netted after 31 minutes, converting Febian Brandy's cross at the back post.

MacDonald added his second goal of the night with 21 minutes remaining, producing a neat left-footed strike from the edge of the penalty area.

Brentford defender Marcus Bean was sent off late on for two bookable offences.

The only minus point for Swansea was a rib injury to Fede Bessone that ended the defender's night on 60 minutes and saw him sent to hospital for a precautionary X-ray.

Walsall 1-2 Darlington

Michael Ricketts went from hero to zero as Walsall crashed out of the Carling Cup at home to Darlington.

The striker headed home Chris Palmer's cross in the 10th minute to give his side the perfect start, but was sent off on 38 for elbowing Ricky Ravenhill.

In-between, Jason Kennedy equalised, rifling home after great wing play from David Poole.

Walsall's misery was complete on 68 minutes, Billy Clarke stabbing home at the second attempt from a Poole cross.

Substitute Tristan Plummer sealed the win 11 minutes from time when Asa Hall's shot was parried into his path.

Jason Puncheon hit the crossbar for Plymouth a minute from time but Luton comfortably held on.

Championship side Charlton were booed off after they were knocked out of the Carling Cup by League One Yeovil.

Striker Paul Warne pounced and slashed home from the middle of the area after Terry Skiverton's flick on to grab Yeovil's eventual winner.

Derby 3-1 Lincoln (AET)

Nathan Ellington scored a dramatic hat-trick as Derby beat Lincoln.

Ben Wright headed Lincoln ahead and Derby were slipping to defeat before Ellington beat Robert Burch from close range after 83 minutes.

The striker had earlier missed a one-on-one and saw a header saved by Burch, who also made excellent saves from Steve Davies and Kris Commons.

Dagenham & Redbridge 1-2 Reading

Reading striker Noel Hunt grabbed the winner on his Royals debut as they won away at Dagenham and Redbridge.

Hunt pounced to break the Daggers hearts with three minutes left and send Reading into the next round.

The visitors had taken the lead after 26 minutes when young winger James Henry nodded home.

Dagenham were level when Solomon Taiwo drove in from 25 yards but after Paul Benson missed a glorious chance to win it for the Daggers, Hunt popped up.

Swindon 2-3 QPR

QPR left-back Damien Delaney proved to be their matchwinner as they came from behind to win away at Swindon.

Angelo Balanta stabbed the ball in when Swindon failed to clear, but the Robins levelled when Anthony McNamee crossed for Simon Cox to fire home.

Billy Paynter gave Swindon a shock lead three minutes before the break when he headed home McNamee's cross, but Dexter Blackstock headed in to equalise.

Delaney lashed in from 12 yards and QPR withheld late pressure to earn victory.

Crystal Palace 2-1 Hereford

Nick Carle and John Oster grabbed their first goals for Crystal Palace to see off League One Hereford.

The Eagles fell behind on 40 minutes when Moses Ashikodi's header went in off the underside of the bar.

But they hit back almost straight away when Carle's left-footed shot flew past helpless Bulls keeper Darren Randolph.

Oster, who only joined Palace 24 hours earlier, then produced a bizarre debut winner when his cross fooled Randolph and dropped into the net.

Watford 1-0 Bristol Rovers

Will Hoskins struck two minutes from time to earn Watford a first home win in four months and a place in the Carling Cup second round.

Hoskins, making only his seventh Hornets start since signing in January 2007, raced on to Billy Gibson's pass and calmly fired past Steve Phillips.

Rovers were left to rue missed chances, with Jeff Hughes taking too long to shoot in the first half.

And David Pipe went close in the second half, his lob dropping narrowly wide.

Ipswich 4-1 Leyton Orient

Striker Danny Haynes struck a brace as Ipswich cantered past Leyton Orient in the Carling Cup at Portman Road.

Danny Granville had a header cleared off the line for the visitors before Haynes outpaced Orient defender Brian Saah and smashed in a near-post shot.

Tommy Miller drove home from the edge of the box to make it 2-0 and Haynes converted Alan Lee's cross to seal it.

Lee flicked home an Quinn left-wing cross before Adam Boyd chipped in a brilliant consolation from 25 yards.

Preston 2-0 Chesterfield

Neil Mellor scored in each half as Preston defeated Chesterfield in the Carling Cup at Deepdale.

Chesterfield goalkeeper Tommy Lee denied Karl Hawley three times and later parried from the striker but Mellor converted the rebound.

Andy Lonergan denied Jamie Ward and Jack Lester missed the rebound.

Ward missed after the break and Paul Harsley hit the crossbar with a right-foot shot before Mellor converted a Darren Carter cross from six yards.

Good win for PNE, I think they'll have a good season this season. Last year, if we had been 1-0 down to Ipswich in the first minute, we will probably have rolled over and Ipswich fired 5 or 6 in, but we fought back, and we won 2-1 thanks to Simon Whaley and Paul McKenna. Last season, we were knocked out by Morecambe at this stage, now we are through.
