Teenager Matthew Lock scored his first goal for Exeter five minutes from time to put the Grecians into the second round of the FA Cup with a home win over Forest Green Rovers.

The replay looked like going to extra time until Gareth Sheldon made a strong run down the right and cut the ball back to Lock, who rifled it home with the aid of a deflection.

Forest Green should have gone ahead after only six minutes when Kayode Odejayi hit the post with a close-range shot.

But that was just a taste of things to come and in the 19th minute they took the lead.

Martin Foster sent over a good cross and former Exeter favourite John Richardson scored with a header.

But the lead did not last long as Carl Pettifer produced a cross which Sheldon headed home.


Exeter: Miller, Hiley, Pilkington, Gaia, Roscoe, Sheldon, Walker, Cronin, Pettefer, Flack, Coppinger. Subs: Fraser, Curran, McConnell, Moor, Lock.

Forest Green: Perrin, Lee Russell, Darren Jones, Richardson, Jenkins, Matthew Russell, Owers, Foster, Sykes, Odejayi, Meechan. Subs: Shuttlewood, Allen, Grayson, Coupe, Langan.

Referee: Phil Joslin (Newark).
