Cup stalemate

Royal Wootton Bassett Town's Emirates FA Cup Extra Preliminary round tie at home against Aylesbury Vale Dynamos ended all square as the teams drew 1-1.

Royal Wootton Bassett Town face a Tuesday night trip to Buckinghamshire after a dour 1-1 draw in their Emirates FA Cup Extra Preliminary round tie against Aylesbury Vale Dynamos.

A gusty, crossfield wind made life difficult for both teams, but there was little quality throughout a frustrating ninety minutes of cup football.

Both goals came in the first half.

Left back Chris Jackson, starting his first game of the season having had to make do with a place on the bench for the opening two league games, had put Bassett ahead after 21 minutes with a powerful effort from outside the area.

However, the Dynamos got back on terms - and ultimately earned a replay - when Keith Murfururirwa lifted he ball over an advancing Declan Lehmann just before the break.
