Goodnight

Did you enjoy that? Good... because there's plenty more of where that came from. There's loads of FA Cup first-round ties to get excited about on Saturday and Sunday, with the draw on Monday evening. We've got a live text running for all three days.

It's time for me to sign off now.

Now, where's the party happening in Warrington tonight?

What next for Warrington Town? Only the glamour of the Cheshire Senior Cup and a preliminary round tie at home to Stockport County on Tuesday night. Bring on the Hatters.

Warrington 1-0 Exeter City

So, Warrington now have six victories in this season's FA Cup - which is as many as a Premier League or Championship team would need to lift the trophy.

Warrington 1-0 Exeter City

Did you watch the game on television? How good was Robbie Savage? I thought he was going to combust with each thunderous tackle, match-saving block and clearance off the line.

Warrington 1-0 Exeter City

I think it's fair to saying they're enjoying this in Warrington...

Josh D: Absolutely incredible FA Cup tie that's what the FA cup is all about! Warrington FC put everything on the line, passion the lot!

Matthew Nixon: And that is why the FA cup is the best domestic cup competition in the world. Congrats to The Yellows.

Championship result

Bolton 3-1 Wigan

Bolton leapfrog their local rivals with that 3-1 win over Wigan who now have only one win in their last 12 games, Wigan could finish this weekend in the relegation zone. What does that mean for Uwe Rosler?

Warrington 1-0 Exeter City

Warrington manager Shaun Reid: "These boys deserve it. No one will want to come here in the next round. Everyone was a hero. They died for me. We will go again. I hope these fans turn out against Stockport again on Tuesday night......"

Warrington 1-0 Exeter City

There's a serious party going on in Warrington right now, and I suspect the party will go on into the night.

Katy: It's easy to forget sometimes that the excitement of the FA cup starts long before the third round. Warrington Town - hold your heads high, what a fabulous result.

Warrington 1-0 Exeter City

So, Craig Robinson has been struggling with injury all week? I'd love to see him when he's fully fit. He was an absolute warrior tonight. If he saw it, he kicked it. If it came his way, he booted it. If it didn't come anywhere near him, he donned a cape and cleared it. He scored too.

Martin Keown

BBC Sport

"The performance tonight was just top drawer. The tackles, bravery and endeavour from the Warrington players was outstanding."

Warrington 1-0 Exeter City

Matchwinner Craig Robinson on BBC Two: "I can't believe it. I am speechless. This is what I have dreamt about. I am so happy my family are here and I am so happy for the club.

"I have been struggling with an injury all week but there was no way I was going to miss it."

Warrington 1-0 Exeter City

Robbie Savage

BBC Two

"Absolutely incredible. What a win for Warrington."

Warrington 1-0 Exeter City

In scenes reminiscent of a rock concert, the Warrington players crowd surf towards the dressing room. A quick wash, a spray of deodorant and straight to the nearest party.

BBC

It's pandemonium now. Half of Warrington invades the pitch, the other half dances in front of their TV sets. One supporter even gets himself a souvenir - an FA Cup advertising hoarding. That'll look good next to the water feature.

Warrington 1-0 Exeter City

Warrington fans, you might want to tune into BBC Two on Monday night. Your team are into the hat for the second-round draw.

FULL-TIME

Warrington 1-0 Exeter City

Magic.

Warrington 1-0 Exeter City

Hoof. Headed clear. Deflected cross, gathered by the keeper. Tense.

Warrington 1-0 Exeter City

Exeter pump the ball forward and Craig Robinson, who might as well be wearing a cape, appears from nowhere to head clear.

Warrington 1-0 Exeter City

Craig Woodman hoofs the ball forward but it goes out for a goal-kick. Shaun Reid prowls the touchline like a caged animal. Almost there.

INJURY TIME

Warrington 1-0 Exeter City

Steve Foster comes on for Ben Wharton as Warrington try and use up some time. We're into injury time. Four minutes to go...

Warrington 1-0 Exeter City

Corner comes into the box, a header is powered towards goal, spilled by the keeper and hacked clear. Agricultural.

Warrington 1-0 Exeter City

Time to pump the ball forward for Exeter. Corner.

CLOSE!

Warrington 1-0 Exeter City

Another Exeter chance is cleared off the line. Again Liam Sercombe gets a cross in and Jimmy Keohane turns the ball goalwards from six yards out but James McCarten is there to clear the ball from danger. Exeter's players are going to be seeing flashes of yellow before their eyes for the next three days.

Championship latest

Bolton 3-1 Wigan

Callum McManaman pulls one back for Wigan Athletic at the Macron Stadium to cut Bolton's lead to two goals. In all reality though it's nothing but a consolation goal for the Latics as they've been poor at best in this second half. Uwe Rosler cuts a frustrated figure on the touchline, he knows his side have blown it this evening.

Warrington 1-0 Exeter City

The goal opens up for Jimmy Keohane but his shot is parried by Karl Wills before the follow-up is blocked by more diving bodies. The Town defenders are diving in front of everything now. Bodies on the line etc.

Warrington 1-0 Exeter City

It's proper muck and nettles stuff now - Matt Grimes taking a shot and Craig Robinson appearing from nowhere to get a crucial deflection on the strike. Now the skipper's down hurt. These Warrington lads will wake up tomorrow morning thinking they've done 12 rounds with Mike Tyson.

Warrington 1-0 Exeter City

Robbie Savage

BBC Two

"Some of them can't even walk. They are exhausted. Exeter have kept the pressure on and now they just need that goal."

Warrington 1-0 Exeter City

Warrington boss Shaun Reid on BBC Two: "We're just losing our shape a little bit so I am a little bit concerned. We will keep digging away and we will see how big their hearts are."

Warrington 1-0 Exeter City

Standby for more nuggets from the touchline...

Harry Hopwood: The way the ball keeps breaking in Warrington's favour, you get the feeling this could just be their night!

Warrington 1-0 Exeter City

Warrington skipper David Mannix gets the approval of television commentator Robbie Savage when he smashes into another tackle. When the boys in yellow aren't tackling flies, they are dropping like... flies! Cramp is taking its toll now. Three men down.

CLOSE!

Warrington 1-0 Exeter City

The whole town of Warrington goes silent for one awkward split-second when Matt Grimes sees his shot deflect off the goalkeeper but cleared off the line by Phil Davies. That's worth a pint in the social club later.

Warrington 1-0 Exeter City

Robbie Savage

BBC Two

"At least Exeter are committing men forward now. They have to get the ball to Grimes and Sercombe as much as they can now."

SUBSTITUTION

Warrington 1-0 Exeter City

Tom Nichols - rated as Exeter's man to watch by our Radio Devon colleagues (19:45) - is summoned by his manager Paul Tisdale to replace Graham Cummins up front.

Warrington 1-0 Exeter City

There are screams for handball against Exeter's Arron Davies as he seemingly controls the ball with his hand before taking a shot. It all comes to nothing, but Warrington should be concerned about the build-up which saw their full-back Lewis Field skinned for pace.
