Crawley Town (1) 1 Forrest (13)
AFC Wimbledon (1) 1 Hatton (43)
Both sides go into the hat for tomorrows draw after 90 minutes at Broadfield Stadium failed to separate them. Forrest’s early effort deflected past Pullen from close range as the hosts controlled the first period, up until Sam Hatton grabbed an equalizer from nothing just before half time. The Dons looked much better in the second half, mounting waves of attacks despite Crawley still threatening on the counter attack. The replay is scheduled for 7.45pm Tuesday at Kingsmeadow.
Elsewhere in the draw Luton and Mansfield overcame Grays and Altrincham 3-0, the other all Conference tie also finished 1-1 between Barrow and crisis club Chester. Stevenage, Wrexham, Gateshead, Forest Green, Oxford, York and Rushden overcame lower level opposition, but a few Conference sides had difficult afternoons, Kettering facing a replay at Redditch after scrambling and equalizer in injury time and Kidderminster having to make a tricky journey to big spending Fleetwood Town. Salisbury escaped with a 0-0 at Farnborough, and Eastbourne required two goals in injury time to grab a 3-3 draw at Tooting.
Some were not so lucky… Staines won 1-0 at Hayes and Yeading, whereas Histon crashed at Hinckley, and Tamworth tumbled out to Ilkeston. The biggest result probably came as Ebbsfleet somehow lost 3-0 to a bunch of Chavs and Pikeys in a field somewhere south-east of Croydon… In the rest of the draw, our friends at FC United of Manchester failed at the final hurdle after Northwich Victoria gained a flattering 3-0 victory. The Trumpton Massive will be crying into their homemade scrumpy tonight after visitors Sutton United marched in from the metropolis and dumped them out of the cup 3-1. Oh, and a team that rhymes with ‘Joking’ stormed to a 5-0 victory at Hendon, who must have had their Under 15’s playing.
