Kingstonian 1-1 Weston-super-Mare


Ten man K's so close to a win.

Kingstonian came agonisingly close to booking their place in the Fourth Qualifying Round of the Emirates FA Cup but will get another chance in Somerset on Tuesday night. 

After a quiet first half that ended goalless, the game burst into life in the 56th minute when some fine work down the right by Dan Bennett was rewarded when his cross was converted by Reece Hall. 

It became a big defensive effort when Jerry Puemo saw red for two bookable offences, and K's nearly crossed the finishing line but Weston-super-Mare pegged back the hosts when Isaac Pearce was tripped in the box in the 90th minute. Seagulls' captain stepped up and confidently put away the resultant penalty.

Nick McCootie then had a goal ruled out for a foul on Rob Tolfrey as the visiting forward headed home, but the tie will now have to be decided at the Optima Stadium on Tuesday night, kick off at 7.45pm.
