Smith’s Cheltenham advance in cup
Bermuda players had mixed fortunes in the English FA Cup first-round replays tonight, with Jonté Smith’s Cheltenham Town edging Swindon Town 1-0 away while goalkeeper Nathan Trott and his AFC Wimbledon side went down 2-0 away to Doncaster Rovers.
Smith played 61 minutes for Cheltenham before being substituted. The game’s only goal came 11 minutes earlier when Alex Addai converted with a right-footed shot from the left side of the penalty box.
Cheltenham will play Port Vale at home in the second round on the weekend of November 29 to December 2.
Trott conceded two second-half goals as Wimbledon lost to Doncaster who scored goals in the 52nd and 70th minutes to advance.
Reggie Lambe’s Cambridge United lost 1-0 away to Exeter who scored the winner in the 70th minute through Alex Fisher. Lambe missed the match as he was in Mexico with the Bermuda team.
Darlington, the team of Bermuda pair Justin Donawa and Osagi Bascome, will meet Walsall at home tonight in their first-round replay.
The pair will miss the match after playing for Bermuda against Mexico.
Non-league Darlington drew 2-2 with Walsall in their first meeting, with Bascome setting up the equaliser six minutes into stoppage time from a free kick.
