FA Cup – Third Qualifying Round Replay: Rugby Town 0 Worcester City 2

Town’s FA Cup adventures for the season ended in Tuesday evening’s replay at Butlin Road, after two Worcester goals within eight second half minutes settled the tie, writes Jon Venner.

Valley had been far from outclassed against their Skrill Conference North opponents over the two games, and they were left ruing a number of missed chances – especially in the opening half an hour of the first encounter at Aggborough last Saturday.

The defeat meant they missed out on a lucrative home game against Lincoln City in the final qualifying round of the competition.
