WOKING earned an FA Cup first-round replay against managerless Bury yesterday after Jamie Philpot’s header secured a 1-1 draw.

Millwall loanee Philpot’s first-half header for the National League side keeps them in the hat for the second round.
League One outfit Bury, who sacked former boss Lee Clark last month, went ahead after just 42 seconds through Michael Smith but could not hang on at the Kingfield Stadium.

League Two side Accrington were also forced into a replay after a 0-0 draw at National League club Guiseley.

Jayden Stockley’s second-half double saw Exeter beat Heybridge Swifts 3-1 at St James Park.

The Isthmian League Division One North visitors held out until the 59th minute before two goals in four minutes from Stockley.

Sam Bantick made it 2-1 but Paul Tisdale’s Exeter made it through after Liam McAlinden added a third.

Wycombe also eased past Solihull Moors 2-0 thanks to goals from Nick Freeman and Craig Mackail-Smith.

Swindon avoided an upset at Dartford after racing into a 3-0 lead inside half an hour following Timi Elsnik’s double and Harry Smith’s drive.
