The former Republic of Ireland boss made eight changes to the side that lost at Nottingham Forest but the Wearsiders went in front through a David Artell own goal on 18 minutes but the game was all square when Ben Clark put through his own net on the stroke of full-time.
David Connolly showed Glenn Roeder just what he can do when started up front alongside Jermaine Defoe for West Ham as the strike pair both got their names on the scoresheet in a 3-1 win.
Connolly struck twice on his home debut, scoring on 14 and 78 minutes after Defoe had opened The Hammers account after nine minutes.
Coventry eased through at home to Peterborough with two goals just after the hour mark from former Arsenal youngster Graham Barrett and Dele Adebola.
Reading were made to work hard before steering their passage through to the next round against Boston but goals from Nicky Forster (16, 87) and Steven Sidwell (83) were enough to beat the third division side despite a Neil Redfearn penalty on 69 minutes.
Bristol City needed extra time to get past Swansea City after Lee Peacock's goal on 14 minutes was cancelled out by a Karl Connolly effort moments later, but The Swans were not helped by Bradley Mayletts sending off right on the stroke of full time.
The Second Division side ran out comfortable winners in the extra two periods with goals from Mickey Bell (96), Daniel Coles (103) and another from striker Peacock (108).
Chris Turner endured a miserable evening against his old club as Hartlepool won through to round two after a penalty shoot-out at Hillsbrough which Pool won 5-4 with Wednesday's Dean Smith being the only onw to miss from the spot.
Graeme Lee had opened the scoring for The Owls against his former employees on 50 minutes but Paul Robinson levelled things up from the spot just six minutes later. Steven Istead put Neale Cooper's men on top on 104 but a late Richard Wood goal (115) sent the match to penalty kicks.
Joe Royle saw his Ipswich team have to wait until the first minute of extra time to go in front against Kidderminster but Dean Bowditch's first senior goal was enough to put their name into Saturday's draw for the second round.
