Southend also enjoyed success on the road as they claimed a 3-1 win at Dagenham & Redbridge courtesy of Ryan Hall's brace. Damien McCrory levelled matters in the 66th minute, but Hall restored Southend's lead before Neil Harris added the icing on the cake.
AFC Wimbledon are though following a 4-3 penalty shoot-out victory over Stevenage after a 2-2 draw. The home side were seconds from success before Mark Roberts' last-gasp leveller. Lawrie Wilson saw his penalty saved in the shoot-out which decided the tie.
Yeovil produced a second-half comeback against Bournemouth but it was not enough to prevent their exit from the competition as the visitors lost 3-2. Marc Pugh helped himself to a first-half brace, although Max Ehmer set up a nervy finish late on.
