Young Norwich City goalkeeper Aston Oxborough failed to make the FA Cup first round proper, with his Wealdstone side being beaten 2-0 in a replay against Maidenhead United.

A win for the on-loan 'keeper would have set up a tasty home encounter against League One side Rotherham United, but a goal in either half ensured it would be the visitors who progressed to the next round.

Chesterfield also failed to advance in the competition, with City forward Anthony Spyrou starting the game against Wrexham.

Spyrou found himself in a number of good positions but failed to capitalise before being replaced on the 71st minute. The Spireites were eventually beaten 1-0 at the Racecourse Ground.

In League One, left-back James Husband featured in Blackpool's 1-1 draw with Wycombe Wanderers at Bloomfield Road.
