Mangan, a free-transfer signing from Forest Green Rovers during the summer, scored the only goal of the night at the King Power Stadium to send the League Two Shrews into the third round.

It was nothing more than Micky Mellon's side deserved as there was often little to determine which team was in the top flight and the other three leagues below.

With one point from their opening two matches on their return to the big time, if City boss Nigel Pearson had been looking at this game as a springboard to get his team's season rolling, then he was sorely mistaken.

In addition to the Foxes and Manchester United, who were shockingly thumped 4-0 by MK Dons, West Ham were another top flight side dumped out by third-tier opposition when they were edged out in a penalty shoot-out by Sheffield United.

New signing Diafra Sahko put the Hammers level in the first half before a Winston Reid own goal levelled the game in the second period and another summer recruit, Enner Valencia, was the only man to miss from 12 yards sending the Blades through.

Oxford took West Brom all the way to penalties before the Premier League side prevailed 7-6 to reach the third round.

Australian defender Jason Davidson scored the winning spot-kick after Oxford captain Jake Wright had seen his effort saved by Boaz Myhill.

Bafetimbi Gomis scored his first goal in English football as Swansea progressed to the third round courtesy of a 1-0 win over Rotherham.

Swansea - winners of the competition two seasons ago - could never relax against resilient Rotherham from the Championship, but Garry Monk's men were always in control after Gomis' clinical first-half strike.

The decisive moment came after 22 minutes when Nathan Dyer found Gomis on the edge of the penalty area and the 12-times capped France striker followed up his smart turn with a clinical finish low past Millers' goalkeeper Scott Loach.

Fulham's £11million striker Ross McCormack eased the pressure on boss Felix Magath with the only goal of the Cottagers' 1-0 Capital One Cup victory at Brentford.

The forward latched onto Chris David's defence-splitting through ball to slide a low shot into the far corner to settle a hard-fought west London derby.

And Austrian striker Atdhe Nuhiu struck a 78th-minute penalty as Championship side Sheffield Wednesday humbled Premier League newboys Burnley 1-0.

Substitute Nuhiu rifled home to settle the second-round tie at a half-empty Turf Moor after Jason Shackell had upended Jeremy Helan.

The Clarets had been in the ascendancy at the time but the contest overall was fairly even and the Owls had gone close when Burnley's Kevin Long struck the frame of his own goal.

Burnley wanted a penalty themselves in injury time when Ashley Barnes went down but nothing was given.

    Bell steers England to victory, hosts take 2-1 Ashes lead

    Ian Bell guided England to an eight-wicket victory over Australia in the third test at Edgbaston on Friday to put the hosts 2-1 up in the series with two matches to play. Bell (65 not out) and Joe Root, with an unbeaten 38, anchored the chase after England were set to 121 to win on the third day at Edgbaston where a dominant performance banished memories of a heavy defeat at Lord's. England lost Alastair Cook (7) and Adam Lyth (12) to set a few nerves on edge but Bell, dropped on 20 by Australia captain Michael Clarke, made his second 50 of the match to spark raucous celebrations after Root hit the winning runs.

    No snow no problem as China's financial might lands 2022 Games

    The snow will be fake, but the very real financial muscle China boasts proved decisive on Friday when Beijing won the right to host the 2022 Winter Olympics. Games officials meeting in Kuala Lumpur voted for the Chinese capital over the lure of a winter wonderland offering from Kazakhstan's Almaty, in a clear sign that the International Olympic Committee is craving solidity and security after a series of problems and headaches. While Rio scrambles to make up lost time in its building for the 2016 Olympics, and Tokyo is embroiled in a stadium drama the allure of a megacity with a cast-iron financial guarantee proved irresistible.
