Richard Dunne played 90 minutes for the first time since Euro 2012 as QPR eased through to the second round of the Capital One Cup.

Charlie Austin netted on his full debut in a 2-0 win at Exeter for Rangers while goalkeeper Brian Murphy also got a rare start for Harry Redknapp's men. 

Wolves were dumped out of the competition by Morecambe with Kevin Doyle a second half substitute in his first appearance of the season. 

Ryan Williams' late free-kick ensured a bad night for Doyle and Irish team-mates Kevin Foley and Matt Doherty.

Andy Keogh's opportunistic second-half strike - made possible by a howler from visiting goalkeeper Ross Worner - and a Martyn Woolford effort ensured Millwall progressed with a 2-1 victory over AFC Wimbledon.

Sean St Ledger snatched a last-gasp winner as Leicester reached the second round with a 2-1 win over League Two outfit Wycombe.

Yeovil Town made it past the first round of the League Cup for just the third time in eight years with a comfortable 1-0 win at Southend thanks to a first half goal from former Shelbourne player Kevin Dawson.

Jordan Burrow scored his first goal for Stevenage as they produced a shock 2-0 win over Mick McCarthy's Ipswich Town.
