Only Stamford are definitely through though thanks to centre-back Cosmos Matwasa’s first-half goal at home to Witham today (September 7).
Paul Malone’s header from a corner gave Sports a come-from-behind 1-1 draw at East Thurrock, while Deeping enjoyed a thrilling 2-2 home draw against higher-level AFC Sudbury. Both replays will take place on Tuesday (September 10).
Sudbury led at the break, but goals from Jordan Macleod and Sam Mooney saw Deeping in front with nine minutes to go. Sudbury found an equaliser in the 83rd minute to force a replay.
March Town took the lead at Grays Athletic, but went down 3-1, while Wisbech Town were beaten 2-1 at the Fenland Stadium by Hitchin Town.
