Fleetwood 0-1 Eastbourne Boro

Matt Smart's freak goal ensured Eastbourne's 632-mile round-trip was a happy one as they overcame Fleetwood.

Town top-scorer Magno Vieira nodded Keigan Parker's cross wide of the post from just six yards early on.

Boro went close to taking the lead but Scott Davies did brilliantly to tip Richard Pacquette's close-range header over the bar.

But Davies was at fault for the winner as Smart's free-kick, five yards inside his own half, sailed all the way in.
