By Caroline Cheese

2232: Time to go. I'll be back tomorrow for some international chit-chat. Don't forget BBC1's Carling Cup highlights show tomorrow at 2315 BST. It'll be repeated on the Red Button and iPlayer if you can't stay up that late on a school night. The second-round draw takes place at 2200 BST. Thanks for your company.

2227: ... But they don't. Skipper Graham Coughlan blasts his spot-kick over the bar and Ipswich win 4-2 on penalties after a 3-3 thriller.

2226: Shrewsbury trail 4-2 and must score...

2224: Ipswich's 16-year-old Connor Wickham scores his penalty, but Shrewsbury respond through Omer Riza and it's now 2-1 to the Tractor Boys.

2221: Shrewsbury's first penalty is saved, so Ipswich one up after the first round of spot-kicks.

2218: And Scott Severin makes it 2-0 for Watford against Barnet at the death, his first goal for the Hornets sending the Championship side through. Shrewsbury and Ipswich will go to penalties.

2216:Final whistle at Edgar Street and Charlton go out to League Two Hereford, Jonny Godsmark scoring the winner in extra-time.

2211: Just done my first count and I reckon there have been 97 goals tonight. And jimsaint on 606 wonders why I didn't mention Southampton's second against Northampton. Meanwhile, Barnet have a goal disallowed against Watford for some pushing on the keeper. Tense times in the big insect derby.

2209: Neal in France (via text on 81111), I'm sorry. Scunthorpe are through to round two for the first time in three years. It wasn't pretty, by all accounts, but they beat League Two Chesterfield 2-1.

From Gunner-Daniel on 606 "Big game for Norwich. Wonder if that bloke who threw his season ticket away after 22 minutes or so regrets it now?"

From Lani in Stroud via text on 81111: "What about Swindon's fantastic result?! Quite a turnaround from Saturday's humiliation."

picto27 on 606 "Come on Shrews! To quote the great team-talk from Football Manager: 'All you need is one more goal!'"

2156: And it's no longer scoreless at Underhill. Mike Williamson gives Watford a 1-0 lead against League Two neighbours Barnet. Only Shrewsbury-Ipswich level now...

2154: I know what you're thinking. Hereford-Charlton is still scoreless. It's not you know. Eight minutes into extra time, Jonny Godsmark puts the League Two side ahead.

2150: Cardiff, West Brom, Bristol City, Blackpool, Doncaster, Swansea... All are Championship sides safely into round two. Sheff U, Plymouth and Derby are the only Champ sides to go so far - but Watford and Ipswich could yet join them. The game at Underhill is the only one still scoreless.

2145: Tranmere, Peterborough and Norwich are also impressive winners tonight, all posting 4-0 victories. League Two Hereford force extra-time against Charlton, who missed a penalty earlier.

2143: Preston, Reading and QPR all score five tonight. Reading still playing against Burton. Watford and Barnet go into extra time.

2140: Contrasting news for south Yorkshire... Sheffield United are dumped out by Port Vale.Sheffield Wednesday thrash Rochdale 3-0 while Barnsley win 1-0 at Lincoln.

2137: Full-times coming in and here's your first cupset: Rotherham defeat Nigel Clough's Derby 2-1. And your second: in-form Gillingham defeat Plymouth 2-1. Paul Sturrock has now won one of nine League Cup matches as a manager. Shrewsbury and Ipswich will go to extra-time.

2134: At the death, Paul Mullin scores for Accrington to give them a 2-1 lead over League One side Walsall. Probably cupset there. Sheffield United and Derby among those desperately trying to avoid an early exit.

2131: One minute remaining at Brunton Park and Scott Dobie pops up to break the deadlock, putting Carlisle 1-0 up against League One rivals Oldham.

2130: Full-time at Selhurst Park where Crystal Palace beat Torquay 2-1.

From Dan and Ad, live at bully bully, via text on 81111: "How about you mention that Vale are 2-1 up at Sheffield United? Super Marc Richards!!!"

2124: If any of these ties finish level, we'll go to extra-time and pens. That may not now happen at Gresty Road where Blackpool take a 2-1 lead against Crewe. Grant Holt puts Norwich 3-0 up against Yeovil. And yes, Bristol Rovers lead 2-1 against Aldershot. Sorry, Gasheads.

gashead_till_i_die on 606 "Oi cheese! Life goes on for Bristol Rovers after Rickie Lambert! How about pointing out we're winning?"

2121: Neil Harris completes a hat-trick for Millwall as the Lions take a 4-0 lead against Bournemouth. Swindon now lead 3-1 against MK Dons after Billy Paynter's goal.

2119: Incredible game at the Prostar Stadium where Shane Cansdell-Sherriff makes it 3-3 for Shrewsbury against Ipswich. Could do without long names scoring goals to be honest. Anyway, Zola does the business for Crewe, Calvin making it 1-1 for League Two Crewe against Champ Blackpool. Blackpool boss Ian Holloway has lost in the first round in seven of his 10 seasons as a manager.

2117: And at the other end, Burton pull a goal back through Jimmy Phillips. Now 4-1 down against Reading. Lee Frecklington scores his first goal for Peterborough to make it 4-0 against Wycombe and it looks like Darren Ferguson's side are through.

From Liam at the Madejski Stadium, via text on 81111: "Burton keeper Kevin Poole is rolling back the years - it's looking like the tin man has been oiled at half time."

2113: Bad news Hugo and your fellow Charlton fans. Andy Gray's penalty has just been saved by Hereford keeper Adam Bartlett. Still 0-0. Preston now 4-0 up and Exeter are down to 10 men. Daniel Bogdanovic puts Barnsley 1-0 up against League Two Lincoln.

From Hugo via text on 81111: "On an island in the Indian Ocean staying up through the early hours of the morning following the mighty Addicks away at Hereford!"

2110: Hat-trick! Wayne Routledge scores his and QPR's second and third at Exeter. And Derby, who went ahead early on, now trail League Two Rotherham 2-1. Good news for Norwich fans: they lead 2-0 at Yeovil.

2106: The relief at Selhurst Park didn't last long. Tim Sills equalises for Torquay. The full list of Championship sides not currently leading: Watford, Plymouth, Barnsley, Derby, Sheffield United and Crystal Palace.

From anon via text on 81111: "Connor Wickham is the new Bontcho Guentchev!"

2104: In the thriller at the Prostar, Ipswich take a 3-2 lead against the Shrews through 16-year-old wonderkid Connor Wickham. Blackpool lead 1-0 at Crewe thanks to Adam Nowland's goal.

2101: Not a good few minutes for cupset fans. Ten-man Bristol City go 1-0 up at Brentford through Nicky Maynard. Wayne Routledge - remember him? - puts QPR ahead at Exeter.

2058: Relief at Selhurst Park as Darren Ambrose breaks the deadlock for Crystal Palace against League Two Torquay. And look at that: crisis club Norwich have scored, Wes Hoolahan with a penalty for Bryan Gunn's side at Yeovil.

2056: Well... well, Notts County trailing 1-0 against Doncaster, James Coppinger giving the visitors the lead. Sheff Wed cruising against Rochdale at 3-0.

2054: Championship Bristol City up against newly-promoted League One side Brentford this evening. It's 0-0 and striker Danny Haynes has just been sent off after getting his second yellow.

2051: Tremendous effort with the texts from the grounds, by the way. Much appreciated. Half-time teas have largely been drunk, and we're getting under way... and look, Plymouth have got one back already, Luke Summerfield making it 2-1 against Gillingham.

From Bez in Cardiff: "City off to a great start. 4-0 on Saturday, 2-0 today at half time without a few internationals. TIP TOP!"

2048: Certainly Matt. The draw is tomorrow at 2200 BST. Thanks for asking.

From Matt, Lancs, via text on 81111: "Any chance of mentioning when the next round draw is? Spare a thought for Kevin Poole, at least he has his pension to console himself with."

2044: Paul Sturrock has won one of his eight League Cup matches as a manager. Let's put it this way: if you want to win the League Cup, don't appoint Paul Sturrock as your manager. Or Paul Peschisolido by the looks of things.

From ChrisPJMartin on Twitter: "Plymouth's miserable run in the Carling Cup under Paul Sturrock looks set to continue. Oh someone cheer me up!"

From Graham, MK Dons fan at Stadium:mk via text on 81111: "McGovern's goal for Swindon was a 40-yard stunning lob. I'm right behind that goal and it was just a pure piece of class."

From Lee, at the ground, via text on 81111: "Goal of the season already wrapped up at Hillsborough. Etienne Esajas smashing home a 30-yard volley."

2037: A Carling Cup-full of thanks to zrodwell88 on Twitter for reminding me... yes, there are Carling Cup highlights on BBC1 tomorrow at 2315 BST.

From Elliott, Notts County fan, via text on 81111: "Sounds like the woodwork is saving Doncaster from the same treatment Bradford received Saturday at Meadow Lane."

From Ben, a much happier Swindon fan, via text on 81111 "Jon-Paul McGovern's goal for Swindon must have been at least 40 yards out! Much better for Swindon tonight!"

2034: Half-time at most of the grounds - but not Deepdale, where Stephen Elliott makes it 2-0 for Preston against Morecambe.

2031: Swindon were on the other end of that Simeon Jackson hat-trick, losing 5-0 in the end. The Robins have taken the lead at Stadium MK through Jon-Paul McGovern. Meanwhile, the Gills are now two to the good against Plymouth.

2028: Simeon Jackson scored a hatto at the weekend - and he's on the scoresheet again tonight, giving League One side Gillingham a 1-0 lead against Plymouth. Tranmere 3-0 up! Reading 4-0 up!! Gylfi Sigurdsson with number four against poor old Burton, who have gone for a... oh, never mind.

2025: John Barnes' managerial bow for Tranmere didn't go all that well, his side going down 2-0 at Yeovil at the weekend. Things are going a bit better tonight, Ian Thomas-Moore's penalty making it 2-0 against League Two Grimsby.

2022: Hold on, I've been misinformed. It was Morecambe who missed a penalty against Preston - and wouldn't you know it, the Lilywhites have only gone and scored through Chris Brown. Sheffield United now level against Port Vale through Billy Sharp.

From Daz via text on 81111: "Progress report from Huish Park, Yeovil on top, Norwich defence looking shaky. Still 0-0, so us Canaries are hanging on."

2019: League Two Morecambe miss a penalty against Championship Preston. And it's a thriller at the Prostar Stadium where Alan Quinn makes it 2-2 for Ipswich against the Shrews. Tommy Rowe's goal gives Darren Ferguson's Peterborough a 2-0 lead at Wycombe.

2015: It all started so well for Keano's kids, but they now trail 2-1 against Shrewsbury after Dave Hibbert's goal. And Richard 'Rickie' Lambert has taken just 29 minutes to open his account for Southampton, giving them the lead against their friends in the north, Northampton. That won't ease Bristol Rovers' pain one bit.

2012: I need some spare fingers. Anyone? West Brom now 2-0 up at Bury. Possible cupset on the cards at Bramall Lane where Marc Richards gives Port Vale the lead against Sheffield United. Better news for Sheffield Wednesday. Jermaine Johnson wriggles past two defenders before firing in to the top left corner to make it 2-0.

2010: ...Whereas 3-0 is merely an embarrassment. Nicholas Bignall scores his second goal in two minutes to put Reading three up in nine minutes. Burton's keeper is 46-year-old Kevin Poole...

2008: Burton Albion are making their League Cup debut tonight at the Madejski Stadium... and it's not going very well. At all. Reading are 2-0 up in seven minutes. Still, you know what they say, 2-0 is a very dangerous scoreline.

2004: Hang on... The Shrews are back in against Roy-Keane's-Ipswich, as we must now call them. Jake Robinson with the goal. Couple of goals in Wales: Swansea ahead against Brighton, Cardiff bagging against Dagenham and Redbridge. Ruddy nora, the goals are flooding in. Etienne Esajas puts Sheffield Wednesday ahead against Rochdale.

2001: Scunthorpe - fresh from a 4-0 spanking at Cardiff at the weekend - open the scoring against League Two Chesterfield through Captain Matt Sparrow.

From Ross, Shepherd's Bush, via text on 81111: "Good chance for Ben Pringle to step up to the mark for Derby tonight. I'm sure he'll find that once he pops... come on ewe Rams!"

1958: Are Ipswich the new Arsenal? I only ask because Connor Wickham - who is only 16 - has just notched his first goal for the Tractor Boys to put them 1-0 up at Shrewsbury. Put that cupset on hold. Derby leading Rotherham 1-0 thanks to Gary Teale's goal.

From PJ, Suffolk, via text on 81111: "Cupset alert! Ten changes by Keano. Clearly the cup isn't high on his list of priorities."

1952: Patulea, I'm told, once won a contract at Lincoln by carrying his wife around the training ground. Remarkable. Meanwhile, Graham Dorrans takes advantage of some shambolic Bury defending to give West Brom the lead.

1948: First goal of the night goes to... Leyton Orient. Adrian Patulea gives the O's a 1-0 lead at fellow League One side Colchester.

From Exodude on Twitter: "Roy Keane has fresh youngsters in his squad, one of which was in the year above me at school. Big night for Ipswich's kids!"

1947: Another 29 games getting up and running as we speak. Only Reading v Burton kick off at 2000 BST. They like a late tea in Berkshire.

From anon via text on 81111: "Mighty Charlton to crush Hereford 1-0. Any win would be nice, lol."

1942: Plenty of Prem bosses whinging about the timing of this week's international matches. But how about the Football League sides? Reading have nine players on international duty as they take on League new boys Burton.

From Daz via text on 81111: "Good evening from a nervous Norwich fan. I witnessed first-hand that 7-1 humiliation on Saturday. Hopefully that will not happen again."

1939: Rickie Lambert does indeed make his debut for Southampton in the Hampton derby against Northampton. Watford, up the road at Barnet tonight, include Tommy Smith, despite the club admitting that they'll probably have to sell their star player before the window closes.

From DavePaylor on Twitter: "Barnsley for an easy win today! Could have had three points against Sheff Wednesday at the weekend. Come on you Reds!"

1931: They'll be kicking off at Selhurst Park about now. Crystal Palace meet League Two Torquay, who last won a League Cup game in 2001.

1925: Big night for Norwich boss Bryan Gunn. His newly-relegated side were thumped 7-1 by Colchester at the weekend - their biggest ever home defeat. Tonight, they travel to fellow League One side Yeovil.

1918: Lucky Black Cat on 606 is somewhat surprised that Newcastle and Middlesbrough do not feature in the first round. They got byes into round two as the highest-ranked teams in the first round.

1914: Southampton, up against League Two Northampton tonight, shelled out more than a million pounds for prolific Bristol Rovers striker Rickie Lambert. The 27-year-old, who scored 29 goals last season, is in the Saints squad.

From LeWebster on 606 "Saints to win with a debut brace from Rickie Lambert!"

1912: Cheeky Leeds have already booked their place in the second round, Enoch Showumni's goal earning them a 1-0 win at Darlington last night.

1908: Those of you with us on Saturday will recall the revelation that I only have two eyes and 10 fingers. This means you won't be getting goalflashes from every game. Instead, I will endeavour to keep you up to speed with the key scorelines and stories as they unfold. As always though, I'm relying in you. Text me on 81111, 606 me on, er, 606, or tweet me on Twitter.

1900: Ding, ding. Round one of the Carling Cup. 31 games. 62 teams. One me. Bear with me, would you?
