Two goals in extra time were enough to put Rugby Town through in their FA Vase first round game against lower league Harrowby United.

The UCL Division One visitors and MFL Premier Division Rugby were level and scoreless after 90 minutes.

Ruben Wiggins-Thomas had missed a penalty in the 70th minute, but Fabian Smith made sure of his strike in the 105th and fellow sub Tevin Shakespeare made it 2-0 six minutes later.
