Football Five-star display crushes sad City; Hampton & Rich ... 5 Worcester City ... 0.
They completely failed to master atrocious conditions caused by heavy rain and a strong wind and Hampton capitalised fully to reach the first round for the first time.
Worcester had the worst possible start, going behind after only two minutes when Matt Flitter fired home from close range.
Hampton went further ahead on 54 minutes when Carl Heeley's clearance went straight to Gary Holloway who made it 2-0 with a low shot.
On 79 minutes more defensive confusion enabled Leroy Griffiths to make it 3-0, Dean Green tapped in the fourth on 88 minutes and Warren Williams added a fifth in injury-time.
Billericay Town ... 0
Hednesford Town ... 0
NINETY minutes could not separate the sides in a match ruined by a strong wind blowing around the park.
The best chance came in the sixth minute when Scott Bonsall's shot from the edge of the area was tipped over by Gavin King.
With 15 minutes remaining Hednesford thought they had won a penalty when Stewart Airdrie was brought down in the area by Dave Culverhouse but the referee waved play on.
The replay will take place at Keys Park on tomorrow night, kick-off 7.45.
Boston United ... 1
Burton Albion ... 1
BURTON showed courage and character to come from behind to take Conference hosts Boston United to an Eton Park replay on Tuesday.
Nigel Clough's team went behind to a Ken Charlery goal in the eighth minute.
The former Blues striker blasted home from eight yards after Burton had failed to clear a long throw-in.
But the Brewers clawed their way back into the game and were rewarded in the 22nd minute when Dale Anderson's cross was slotted home from 15 yards by Neil Glasser.
