Eastleigh 2-1 Lincoln City

Highlights: Eastleigh 2-1 Lincoln City

Ben Strevens' 90th-minute strike earned Eastleigh a dramatic FA Cup first-round victory against Conference rivals Lincoln at Ten Acres.

Eastleigh found themselves ahead early on when Craig McAllister powerfully headed home Dan Spence's cross.

Lincoln built pressure after the break and were rewarded when Delano Sam-Yorke coolly slotted home the equaliser.

But Strevens put the hosts into the second round when he tucked away Ben Wright's cut-back from close range.
