FA Cup 2017-18 highlights: Exeter City 2-1 Forest Green Rovers (aet)

Jayden Stockley's extra-time header saw Exeter beat League Two rivals Forest Green and earn an FA Cup third-round tie with Premier League side West Brom.

Christian Doidge put the visitors ahead from the spot after he was fouled by Jordan Moore-Taylor.

Exeter had Jordan Tillson red-carded but equalised when Kyle Edwards won a penalty, which Pierce Sweeney scored.

Emmanuel Monthe was sent off for Rovers in extra time and Stockley nodded a 115th-minute winner for the home side.

Both Tillson and Monthe were dismissed for second yellow cards, with former Aberdeen striker Stockley stooping to divert Hiram Boateng's cross in for Paul Tisdale's Exeter.

The hosts had come closest to a decisive goal before that when Jake Taylor's flick was tipped onto the post by Bradley Collins.
