Fylde 1 Accrington Stanley 4 NEW Accrington manager Leam Richardson admitted he had challenged Will Hatfield to start finding the back of the net before the striker grabbed four to knock AFC Fylde out of the cup.

Hatfield scored twice in the first half and twice more in the second for his first goals of the season, before Adam Farrell netted a late consolation.

"I had a little nobble with Will, asking him how many games it's been since he scored, and pops up with four - I'm made up for him," said Richardson.

"I think it was 13 games without a goal for Will and I'd told him it's his last - I think he's just earned himself another 13 with that."

AFC Fylde manager Dave Challinor said: "There was a lot on the game, maybe it was too big for some, but they've given us everything and they can be proud to get to this round."

Barnet 0 Oxford Utd 2 CHRIS WILDER insisted his Oxford side had been in full control, as goals from James Constable and Sean Rigg sent them into the second round.

The visiting team were well worth the win as they registered 21 attempts on goal and hit the woodwork twice in the first half, but it took second-half goals from Constable and Rigg to eventually make the game safe.

Barnet joint-head coach Edgar Davids brought himself on for his FA Cup debut at 39, but could not turn the tide as Oxford held 62 per cent possession which left Wilder purring.

"It was a good afternoon for us. We were good all round," he said.

"The win keeps the momentum going and keeps the good form."

Barnet joint-head coach Mark Robson said: "I thought we were very poor. Oxford are a very good side and we never threatened them."

Carlisle 4 Ebbsfleet 2 EBBSFLEET manager Liam Daish admitted that his team failed to grasp the opportunity to cause an upset against a Carlisle side lacking confidence.

The Blue Square Premier League strugglers put Carlisle on the spot when they drew level after half time.

However, late goals flattered the Cumbrians who went on to win 4-2. Daish said: "I'm disappointed especially after getting back on level terms. I fancied us to go on and win it."

The Cumbrians finally managed to break the deadlock when David Symington slipped the ball home.

Nathan Elder levelled for Fleet when he found the target with his first touch, before goals from Liam Noble, James Berrett and Joe Garner settled it. Joe Howe gave Ebbsfleet the last word.

Chelmsford 3 Colchester 1 CHELMSFORD CITY manager Glenn Pennyfather admitted he was still in shock after watching Donovan Simmonds inspire his side to a stunning win over Colchester.

Simmonds gave the Blue Square South side a two-goal lead - though Michael Rose pulled one back, Jamie Slabber sealed the scalp late on.

Pennyfather said: "It's absolutely unbelievable. I'm a little bit in shock and I'm trying to take it all in.

Colchester manager Joe Dunne said: "We're disappointed to lose the match. That's an understatement. I don't want to take anything from Chelmsford - they've earned the right to be in the next round and we haven't."

Hereford 3 Shrewsbury 1 HEREFORD boss Martin Foyle is adamant the Bulls' shock FA Cup first-round win against Shrewsbury and former owner, chairman and manager Graham Turner can be a turning point for the club.

Relegated from League Two last season, Hereford are currently 14th in the Conference and facing financial troubles, but goals in either half from Ryan Bowman helped them down the Shrews.

Will Evans set the ball rolling after three minutes with Luke Summerfield's free-kick on the half-hour mark proving in vain, and Foyle said: "It was an important win for us as a club.

"There was more pressure on us in the last round, but to beat Shrewsbury, who are an excellent side was great for the club.

"There has been a lot of doom and gloom, but this might now just edge us to the right side."

And Shrewsbury boss Turner, who spent 15 years at Hereford before leaving in 2010, said: "It's difficult to explain why we go wrong in the early stages of matches.

"This is the fourth time in five games that we have conceded in the first five minutes and then the second goal just compounded the problems. It's devastating."

Boreham W 0 Brentford 2 UWE ROSLER has called on his Bees side to continue their rich FA Cup traditions after marching into the second round by brushing aside Boreham Wood.

Rosler's side proved too strong for the Blue Square Conference South high-flyers thanks to firsthalf strikes from Clayton Donaldson and Harry Forrester.

And Rosler wants the four-time quarter-finals finalists to mount another cup run.

"We want to go far," said Rosler. "It's massively important for Brentford as a club and for me personally it's the biggest cup competition in the world.

"No other country is anywhere near the FA Cup with the history and level of excitement.

"We really want to measure ourselves against the big fish."

Wood boss Ian Allinson said: "We're disappointed to lose the game, I think for the first 45 minutes we gave a real good account of ourselves.

"It would have been interesting if one or two of our chances had gone in during the first half. It could have changed everything."

Fleetwood 3 Bromley 0 FLEETWOOD Town secured their place in the second round draw with a victory over Blue Square Bet South side Bromley.

David Ball put the hosts ahead after 10 minutes, getting the last touch after a Cutis Obeng throw.

And their lead was doubled when Bromley keeper Joe Welch brought down Junior Brown inside the area, and Jon Parkin converted the penalty.

The home side made it three just after the half hour, when Parkin bagged his second from the spot.

Fleetwood boss Micky Mellon said: "What it was all about was being in the draw and we did that.

"We know we can play a lot better though."

Torquay 0 Harrogate 1 HARROGATE hero Chib Chilaka described his first-half winner against Torquay as "the biggest goal of my career".

Chilaka fired in off both posts in the 20th minute, and then the Conference North side hung on in wind and rain to reach the Second Round for the first time in their history.

"I had a feeling before the match that I might score," he said.

Torquay boss Martin Ling said: "It's very disappointing, especially the manner in which it happened. It wasn't good enough."

Lincoln C 1 Walsall 1 LINCOLN boss David Holdsworth singled out striker Jamie Taylor for special praise after the Imps came within a whisker of causing a cup shock against Walsall.

Taylor's impudent firsthalf chip looked set to send the Imps through to the second round until George Bowerman rescued Walsall.

Holdsworth said: "If anyone from the Football League is watching Jamie Taylor they'll be thinking 'I'll have a look at him'."

Forest Green 2 Port Vale 3 MICKY ADAMS believes Port Vale would have struggled to live down a defeat to Forest Green for years - admitting Ben Williamson's late winner got his side out of jail.

League Two side Vale let their early two-goal lead slip against Blue Square Premier side Rovers after James Norwood and Eddie Oshodi cancelled out goals from Ashley Vincent and Clayton McDonald.

But Williamson came off the bench to settle it for Vale, much to Adams' relief.

"You can come here and lose the game, and that'll get thrown at you for years to come," he said.

"Whether we deserved to on our second-half performance I'm not sure, but we'll take it."
