Wrexham 3-1 Maidstone United

Wrexham survived a spirited second-half performance by 10-man Maidstone to go through to the FA Cup third round.

Manny Smith volleyed Wrexham into an early lead, before an Andy Bishop penalty doubled their advantage after Maidstone's Aaron Simpson was sent off for fouling Wes York in the box.

But the part-timers set up a nervy finish as Alex Flisher tucked home from close range on the hour mark.

Bishop headed his second late on to seal the win for the Conference side.

The draw for the third round will take place on Monday, 8 December and will be televised on BBC Two from 19:00 GMT.

Wrexham manager Kevin Wilkin said: "I'm delighted to be in the next round but it was a fantastic tie and both sides played in the right spirit.

"Great credit to [Maidstone]. They've had one or two opportunities there and they're a club on the up.

"I'm just happy to be in the next round, anybody at home would be very nice."
