Rushden, Morecambe and Salisbury booked their places in the FA Cup second round.
In a day of few upsets, non-league outfits Rushden, Morecambe and Salisbury booked their places in the FA Cup second round.
Rushden overcame League One Yeovil in one of the biggest upsets of the day, while the other two victories saw wins over fellow non-leaguers, as they took advantage of their respective home draws.
Rushden and Yeovil were in the same division last year, but times have changed and now The Diamonds claimed a notable scalp of the high-flying Glovers.
Chris Hope (28) opened the scoring and Michael Rankine (pictured, 54) doubled their advantage.
Chris Cohen (62) gave Yeovil some hope before Rankine's (75) second sealed the win.
Morecambe came through 2-1 at Christie Park with goals from Wayne Curtis (44 pen) and Michael Twiss (73), with Gavin Hurren claiming a last minute consolation for Kidderminster.
Salisbury progressed with a comfortable 3-0 success over Fleetwood with Matthew Tubbs (12), Matthew Holmes (60) and Scott Bartlett (69) finding the net at The Raymond McEnhill Stadium.
It was a case of what could have been at Torquay as the lowest ranking team left in the FA Cup, Leatherhead, bowed out.
Giant killings were firmly on the mind of the minnows as they went ahead after just 55 seconds with Ian Hendry heading home.
However, it was not to be for the Ryman League side as second half goals from Jamie Ward (57) and Chris McPhee (72) condemned them to defeat.
Swansea eased into the second round of the FA Cup thanks to a 3-1 win over Welsh rivals Newport County.
Goals from Lee Trundle (7), Izzy Iriekpen (31) and Leon Britton (45) had the match sewn up for The Swans by half time with Ian Hillier's effort (48) no more than a consolation for County.
The game, though, was marred by an incident midway through the first half when the fourth official was knocked unconscious by a missile thrown from the home crowd after Newport manager Peter Beadle was sent to the stands.
Hereford earned a replay in their FA Cup first round clash with Shrewsbury after a goalless draw at Gay Meadow.
Town were twice denied by the woodwork but they could not find a way through and the two will not meet at Edgar Street later this month.
Nottingham Forest made easy work of Conference South side Yeading with a 5-0 success at The City Ground.
Kris Commons claimed a first half hat-trick before Junior Agogo added a brace after the interval.
One giant killing came at London Road as League Two side Peterborough dispatched Rotherham of League One 3-0. Richard Butcher (29), Aaron McLean (59) and Danny Crow (73) were on target.
There was also a League Two-League One upset at The County Ground as Swindon beat Carlisle.
Chris Lumsdon put through his own net after nine minutes to give the home side the lead, but Kevin Gray levelled for The Cumbrians just before the hour.
The win was sealed thanks to a brace from Christian Roberts.
Conference outfits Stevenage and Oxford both lost out on their travels to League Two sides.
Stevenage went down 1-0 at Wrexham with a Danny Williams (40) goal proving enough for the Welsh side, while Wycombe dispatched of Oxford 2-1.
Will Antwi gave Wycombe the lead on the hour, but Gavin Johnson looked to have salvaged a replay for the visitors - but they could not hang on as Stefan Oakes pounced to seal the win.
Tranmere avoided any sort of upset as they beat Conference side Woking 4-2 at Prenton Park.
A Gareth Taylor (19 & 48) brace and goal from Chris Greenacre (37) put Rovers well on their way. Woking managed to hit back through Simon Jackson (63) and Craig McAllister (69) to make for a nervous few minutes - but a second from Greenacre sealed the issue.
Stafford Rangers and Maidenhead have it all to do again after a 1-1 draw at Marston Road.
Wayne Daniel had put Stafford ahead after 13 minutes but they were pegged back by Dwane Lee's goal just before the hour mark.
Bristol City overcame a tricky looking trip to York as they grabbed a 1-0 win at KitKat Crescent. Defender Jamie McCombe scored the winner on 53 minutes.
League One Port Vale overcame Lincoln 2-1 at Vale Park.
Danny Whitaker (29) and Akpo Sodje (38) put The Valiants 2-0 up at the interval, which proved enough as Lincoln could manage only one strike which came from Lee Frecklington (84).
Mansfield booked their place in the next round with a 1-0 win over Accrington at Field Mill. A penalty from captain Richie Barker just before half time was enough for The Stags to progress.
Rochdale and Hartlepool will need to replay after a 1-1 draw at Spotland. James Brown (41) had put Pools ahead but Dale levelled through John Doolan just before the hour.
A replay is also required between Northampton and Grimsby following a goalless draw at The Sixfields Stadium.
