None of the non league teams managed to win through in their replay’s last night although Cambridge United can feel a little hard done by as Huddersfield beat them 2-1 thanks to goals by Lee Peltier and Gary Roberts in the 91st and 94th minute. They wont even take much consolation from the disappointing crowd of 3,766, however their FA Cup run will have gained them some useful prize money.
Woking managed to hold high flying Brighton but succumbed 3-0 on penalties in an entertaining match which had 36 goal attempts and attracted a great crowd of 4,193. Woking may have cracked at the end but they will take great heart from this performance and this may act as the catalyst which pushes them forward in the Conference South.
The other non league losers Dratford, Fleetwood & Vauxhall Motors couldn’t manage a goal between them and unfortunately it doesn’t look like there is going to be a big giant killing story this season.
The MK Dons lost 7-6 on penalties so we will have to wait a bit longer before they finally meet their old namesake AFC Wimbledon who they could have faced in round 2.
