Preston qualified for the next round with a 4-2 victory away at League Two Morecambe. Jordan Mustoe gave the hosts a first-half lead before the Whites responded through Graham Cummins 10 minutes into the second period.

However, a Paul Huntingtonheader and second from Sodje in stoppage time secured a win for the visitors.
Plymouth beat Aldershot 2-1 with all the goals coming in the opening 30 minutes at Home Park. Paris Cowan-Hall struck in the first minute for the hosts before Craig Reid notched a 12th-minute equaliser. Andres Gurrieri restored the Pilgrims lead on the half-hour with a strike that proved decisive.
There was a scintillating start at Fratton Park as Gareth Ainsworth's side took a 17-second lead through Joel Grant before Dean Morgan extended the League Two strugglers' lead just seven minutes later. Portsmouth halved the visitors advantage just before half-time but Morgan sealed a 3-1 victory for Wycombe with his second goal of the game on 58 minutes.
Walsall's Florent Cuvelier slotted home a 26th-minute penalty after Richard Duffy was adjudged to have handled in the area.

Hartlepool entertained Bradford at Victoria Park in a game which ended goalless after 90 minutes. The visitors won 3-2 on penalties.
The Lancashire derby between Rochdale and Bury had to be decided by penalties after goals from Ashley Grimes and Steve Schumacher failed to separate the two sides.

A single goal from Sam Saunders was enough to give Brentford victory over Crawley at Griffin Park.
