Worcester City 0-1 Harrogate Town

A first-half goal from Paul Brayson sent Harrogate Town through to the next round of the FA Trophy with victory over Worcester City.

Brayson's strike after 18 minutes proved to be the difference between the two Blue Square Bet North sides.

City manager Carl Heeley told BBC Hereford & Worcester: "I feel a little bit mugged.

"We created good situations but when you're looking for the rub of the green, it didn't really come for us."

VIEWS FROM THE DRESSING ROOM

Harrogate Town manager Simon Weaver told BBC Radio York:

'We got the win we wanted' - Weaver

"We created the better chances of the two even though I think territorially they had more dominance in the game.

"What counts is that we got the win and we showed terrific spirit and determination to get the result we wanted.

"It's a great opportunity to come back here. We wanted another crack at Worcester. It was a terrific game.

"There was a lot of excitement there and a lot of endeavour from both teams. But we're really delighted with our players' performance today."
