Kingstonian 2-1 AFC Sudbury

Dan Bennett

K's come from behind again to book their place in the First Round Proper of the Buildbase FA Trophy

A late Dan Bennett goal gave Kingstonian a hard-fought victory over Isthmian North side AFC Sudbury at King George's Field.

Kingstonian started the game very quickly and were guilty of missing a number of chances in the first half. The visitors made them pay royally for their profligacy when they took the lead in the 47th minute thanks to an excellent strike from Callum Harrison.

It was vital that K's got back into the game quickly, and they did just that, with Calum Davies equalising in the 53rd minute.

K's were frustrated for much of the second half as they sought to avoid a replay, but never gave up and were eventually rewarded in the 88th minute when Dan Bennett forced the ball home in a goalmouth scramble.

Kingstonian will now go into the hat for Monday's draw, which will be broadcast live on TalkSport 2 at around 12.45pm.

The First Round takes place around the weekend of Saturday 14th December, which means that the hoops' away match in the Isthmian League Premier Division against Potters Bar Town will have to be re-scheduled.
