Bury defeated Coventry 3-1 as they poured further misery on the Championship club who were beaten in their opening game of the new season. Ryan Lowe did the damage with a brace.

Doncaster encountered no such problems as they showed their Championship class to swat aside Tranmere 3-0 to move into the next round.
