Minnows munched up

A LAST-GASP goal from Craig Mackail-Smith gave Peterborough a 1-0 win over Ryman Premier side AFC Hornchurch in the first round of the FA Cup yesterday.

Mackail-Smith clinched the League One side’s passage to the second round by pouncing on a loose ball in the 90th minute.

Last season’s cup heroes Havant & Waterlooville failed to cause an upset at Westleigh Park, where they lost 3-1 to League Two side Brentford.

The Bees opened the scoring in the 41st minute when Marvin Williams tucked home from close range.

Charlie MacDonald added a second after 65 minutes before Ian Simpemba put the hosts back in it with a clinical header seven minutes later. Three minutes from time Elder sealed the win.

Kaid Mohamed’s winner 15 minutes from time gave Forest Green a 1-0 win at Blue Square South side Team Bath, earning a meeting with Barnet or Rochdale.

In Saturday’s ties, Histon caused the shock of the round by beating League One Swindon 1-0, thanks to Daniel Wright’s goal.

Gary Madine saved managerless Carlisle United’s blushes as they drew 1-1 with Blue Square Premier side Grays Athletic, while Jean Francois Christophe’s last-gasp equaliser denied AFC Telford a win over League One Southend.

Blue Square Premier side Droylsden earned a replay with Darlington after playing out a 0-0 draw with the League Two leaders.
