Port Vale 1-2 Canvey Island (aet)
Ryman League outfit Canvey Island sent Second Division Port Vale crashing out on their own patch with two goals in extra time after a goalless 90 minutes.

The part-timers, who fought back from 4-2 down to force a replay with two goals in the last two minutes nine days ago, battled resolutely to send the game into another half-an-hour.

But rather than fade, the minnows rallied and went ahead through Neil Gregory at the end of the first period.

A wonderful run and finish from Wayne Vaughan sealed matters.

There was still time left for Tony Naylor to give Vale a glimmer of hope, but there was to be no repeat of a dramatic comeback and it was the Islanders who went through to the second round for the first time in their history.

Port Vale: Goodlad, Carragher, Brammer, Burton, Cummins, Naylor, Widdrington, Bridge-Wilkinson, Minton, Smith, Burns. Subs: Delaney, Eyre, Donnelly, O'Callaghan, Twiss.

Canvey Island: Harrison, Smith, Stimson, Bennett, Bodley, Ward, Tilson, Kennedy, Gregory, Vaughan, Cooper. Subs: Clark, Jones, Miller, Parmenter, Davidson.

Referee: M Jones (Chester)
