And five minutes into extra time FCR went in front but four minutes from time Woodhouse netted for the home side to earn a replay in four days time.

 

Hullbridge Sports 3 Wembley 2

A 92nd minute winner from Jimmy Cox sent Hullbridge Sports into the last 64 of the FA Vase in what was Rob Hodgson and Aaron Hunwick’s last match in charge of the club. The hosts took the lead midway through the first half when Sam Taylor’s cross was headed across goal for Charlie Buffin to slot home but in the 65th minute Wembley levelled when tapping home after a defensive slip. The hosts then retook the lead with thirteen minutes left through an own goal however just five minutes later keeper Jamie Merrells was shown a straight red after giving away a penalty, which the visitors converted. However just as it looked like extra time the ten men of Hullbridge won it when a cross found Cox who made no mistake, heading home at the far post, to end Hodgson and Hunwicks reign in a positive note.
