AFC Bournemouth had five players in mid-week action, as both league and cup fixtures took place across the country.
Mikael Ndjoli netted his first goal for Gillingham and was then sent off, as his side were knocked out of the Carabao Cup on penalties to Newport.
The Gills took the lead inside 26 minutes, Brandon Hanlan converting the first spot-kick of the evening, before Tristan Abrahams equalised for the visitors late on.
Steve Evans’ side were then awarded another penalty in time added on, which the Cherries youngster stepped up to convert.
But moments later, it was to be the end of Ndjoli’s night as he was sent off for a foul that allowed Newport a late route back into the game, once again from the spot.
Padraig Amond fired home, with County going on to win 4-1 on penalties and book their place in the next round.
Also in the Carabao Cup, Sam Surridge made his first start and played 90 minutes for Swansea in their 3-1 win over Northampton Town, Andre Ayew scoring twice at the Liberty Stadium.
The 21-year-old almost found a breakthrough goal for the Welsh outfit in the second half, with the scores still at 0-0, but visiting ‘keeper David Cornell did superbly to reach his powerful header.
In the National League South, both Calum Ward and Sam Sherring played 90 minutes for Mark Molesley’s Weymouth, who continued their unbeaten start with a 1-1 draw against Slough.
Frank Vincent was another who played a full game, with his Torquay side losing 2-0 at home to Maidenhead.
The Gulls sit 18th in the National League with four games played.
Elsewhere, Jake Cope was an unused substitute as Poole Town lost 2-1 at home to Tiverton.
