Last updated : 08 November 2009 By Bournemouth Co-Ordinator
FA Cup-EONNo further upsets involving League Two sides as Rotherham United and Burton Albion both overcome non-League opposition in the FA Cup First Round.

Rotherham United had a tricky visit to The Vale to face Wealdstone. The League Two side edged a 5-goal thriller with Le Fondre and Ellison giving the Millers a 2-goal half time lead with goals in the 33rd and 44th minutes. Ashe pulled back for the Ryman Premier side in the 63rd minute, before Broughton effectively wrapped it up in the 83rd minute. Ashe netted for a second time in the 90th minute to set up an interesting last few minutes, but the league side held out for the win and a place in the Second Round.

Burton Albion left it very late to book their place in the Second Round of the FA Cup against Oxford City at The Pirelli stadium. Alexis gave the Conference South side a 6th minute lead, before Harrad levelled from the penalty spot in the 15th minute and Maghoma edged the League Two side ahead on the stroke of half time. Brooks levelled for the non-leaguers in the 55th minute. With the game heading for a replay Austin scored the winner in the 96th minute to book Albion's place in the next round.
