AFC Telford United 2-1 Basingstoke Town

AFC Telford beat Basingstoke Town in their FA Cup first-round replay to earn a second-round tie at League One leaders Bristol City.

Andy Parry's powerful header put the Conference side ahead, while Tony Gray made it 2-0 from close range.

Great work from Chris Flood set up Louie Soares to close the deficit from inside the six-yard box.

Telford's Michael Grogan was sent off for a second yellow, while Jamie Brown was dismissed for Basingstoke late on.

Brown's second yellow came in stoppage time after Flood missed a great chance to equalise, but he failed to get the ball from under his feet.

Flood had earned his side the replay with the equalising goal in the first game 10 days earlier.
