Stevenage 1-0 Hastings

Richard Howell's early goal was enough to send Conference strugglers Stevenage into the FA Cup second round with a 1-0 win over Hastings.

Hastings battled bravely throughout although Adam Flanagan and Landry Zahana-oni were both dismissed in the closing stages.

Stevenage, who had not won at home since August, made the perfect start as they went ahead after just five minutes.

Jude Stirling crossed from the left and Richard Howell headed the ball past Hastings goalkeeper David King.

The Dr Martens Premier side, who knocked Kettering out in the fourth qualifying round, tried to respond and Flanagan's header went just wide after 18 minutes.

Stevenage goalkeeper Stuart Fraser made an excellent save with his feet to keep out Zahana-oni's effort from close range after 52 minutes before King parried Simon Wormull's shot at the other end.

Michael Blackwood hit the woodwork for the hosts with a left-foot shot and Wayne Turner's side held on for the triumph.


Stevenage: Westhead, Trott, Gary MacDonald, Stirling, Travis, Howell, Blackwood, Scott, Fraser, Midson, Jackson. Subs: Wormull, Sigere, Wilson, Jamie Campbell, Charlie MacDonald.

Hastings Utd: King, Burt, Osborne, Adam Flanagan, Yates, McArthur, Playford, Simmonds, Hegley, Honey, Zahana-oni. Subs: Ruddy., Body, Cornwall., Webb, Brown.

Referee: T Kettle (Maidenhead)
