Brighton   3 - 2   Rushden & D'mnds

Liam Dickinson scored the winner four minutes from time as Brighton edged plucky Rushden to make the next round.

Dickinson netted from seven yards after Nicky Forster's shot was blocked.

Dickinson had opened the scoring from Nathan Abbey's mistake in the third minute before Lee Tomlin equalised on 14 minutes with a low shot.

Forster's penalty restored the home side's advantage but Aaron O'Connor's low shot into the corner had the sides level five minutes before the break.


Brighton boss Gus Poyet told BBC Sussex:

"We know these competitions are difficult. There are always surprises, but none today, and we are through.

"We knew it (would be a battle), it's the kind of game where you know what's going to happen."

Rushden and Diamonds manager Justin Edinburgh tells BBC Radio Northampton:

"I'm gutted for the players. They deserved more than they got, but we were playing against a good side.

"I'm just disappointed at the manner we conceded, but it just shows our spirit to come from behind twice.

"We bossed the game in the first 20 minutes of the second half, and I thought we might have won the game."
