Highlights: Altrincham 1-0 Barnsley

Damian Reeves' strike sent National League side Altrincham through to the second round of the FA Cup at the expense of League One Barnsley.

Jake Moult came close to putting Altrincham in front when Adam Davies tipped his effort over the bar.

The Robins took the lead just after half-time when Ryan Crowther's shot was parried into the stride of Reeves, who tapped into an open net.

The win sends Alty into the second round for the first time since 2001.

It also heaps the pressure on Barnsley boss Lee Johnson who is currently overseeing their worst run in 56 years, having lost their previous seven League One games.

Altrincham, who sit 45 league places below the Tykes, have not beaten a Football League side in this competition since a second-round win over Wigan in December 1994.

Barnsley are the 17th league side to lose to Alty in the FA Cup, which is a record for the most league scalps by a team never to feature in the Football League.

The Tykes dominated the game for large spells but were made to pay for missing a series of clear chances.
