Republic of Ireland defender Dara O'Shea scored his first goal for Burnley as they put their Premier League troubles to one side by breezing into the last 16 of the Carabao Cup with a 4-0 demolition of Sky Bet League Two strugglers Salford.
Winless in their first five games back in the top flight, Vincent Kompany's side are enjoying better fortunes in this competition and followed up last month's victory at Nottingham Forest with a one-sided win over Salford, suffering near the foot of League Two but boasting Cup wins over Leeds and Preston.
Anass Zaroury had a hand in all four goals as Sander Berge, Jacob Bruun Larsen and O'Shea put the result beyond doubt inside the opening half an hour before Wilson Odobert marked his full debut with a late fourth. For all four Burnley scorers, it was their first goal for the club.
O'Shea's goal came when Salford goalkeeper Alex Cairns stopped a shot from a quick free-kick but could not hold it, and O'Shea accepted the invite to bundle the ball home.
Elsewhere, uncapped midfielder Jack Taylor, who was last included in Stephen Kenny's Irish squad for the June window, was on target as a second-string Ipswich side put another feather in the cap of manager Kieran McKenna after they fought back from two goals down to stun Wolves with a 3-2 win at Portman Road.
McKenna, who has developed a reputation as one of the brightest coaches in the English game after he masterminded the Tractors Boys' promotion to the Sky Bet Championship last season, watched his team go 2-0 down early on.
Hwang Hee-Chan and Toti netted inside 15 minutes for the Premier League side but they still slumped to a fifth defeat in eight matches under new boss Gary O'Neil.
Omari Hutchinson started the Ipswich comeback with a fine 28th-minute finish before Freddie Ladapo ensured it was all square at half-time.
Taylor's superb 25-yard strike soon after the break handed former Manchester United assistant McKenna his first victory over a top-flight club.
Two goals from Jonson Clarke-Harris were not enough for Taylor's former club Peterborough, who were beaten on penalties by League Two hosts Mansfield after a 2-2 draw.
Luton crashed out of as they were beaten 1-0 by League One Exeter at St James Park.
Demetri Mitchell scored the only goal of an absorbing game with seven minutes remaining before he was later sent off after picking up a second yellow card.
Luton made 10 changes to the team that picked up their first point of the Premier League season with a 1-1 draw against Wolves at the weekend, with Ireland forward Chiedozie Ogbene among those not included in the starting line-up.
Goals from Emmanuel Latte Lath and Morgan Rogers gave Middlesbrough a comfortable 2-0 win at League Two Bradford, while Funso Ojo's late strike saw Port Vale edge a 2-1 win over Sutton.
