Match ends, Maidstone United 0, Yeovil Town 1.
Nine-man Yeovil Town sealed their place in the FA Cup second round as they overcame National League South side Maidstone United.
The League Two side had Jakub Sokolik sent off just seven minutes in for a two-footed challenge on James Rogers.
Wes Fogden put the Glovers ahead but keeper Artur Krysiak was then dismissed for bringing down Alex Osborn.
Maidstone almost found a late equaliser when Alex Acrofi tapped the ball home only to be judged offside.
The tie looked ripe for an upset, with Maidstone third in their division while Yeovil went into the game second from bottom of the Football League and without a win since mid-September.
And Paul Sturrock's side could not have got off to a worse start as they were reduced to 10 men when Sokolik was dismissed for a reckless challenge.
The hosts went closest to taking the lead in a first half of few chances when Rogers volleyed narrowly wide.
Yeovil went ahead after the break when Fogden worked the ball into the bottom corner after Maidstone failed to clear a free-kick.
But, just minutes later, the visitors went down to nine men when Krysiak fouled Osborn just outside the box and Alex Flisher fired the resulting free-kick just wide.
The hosts maintained their pressure and nearly forced a replay late on as Jamie Coyle nodded Matt Bodkin's ball against the right-hand post and Acrofi's effort was flagged offside.
Yeovil Town manager Paul Sturrock told BBC's Final Score:
"They were superheroes, every one of them.
"The boys soldiered on and did all the things we've been working on."
