Stamford delivered one of the second qualifying round results of the day yesterday winning 2-1 at National North side Telford United. Telford play two levels above the Daniels, but two Cosmos Matwasa goals won the day for the underdogs.

Spalding also enjoyed a fine result, forcing a replay at another National North side Kettering Town courtesy of a last-gasp headed goal from skipper Nathan Stanfield.

Peterborough Sports werr hot favourites for their tie at Isthmian League side Great Wakering Rovers, but the hosts proved plucky opponents before the city side ran out 5-3 winners.
