But the lead lasted just three minutes, with Dan Matsuzaka leaping to head in a corner.

Substitute Jacob Bancroft grabbed the decisive goal five minutes from time, securing a 2-1 success.

Banbury United claimed an upset, knocking out National League North side Leamington 1-0.

Kelvin Langmead headed in the only goal of the game in the opening 20 minutes.

Just as it looked like a point was on the cards, Bedworth struck the winner on 83 minutes.
