ROB Hodgson tasted success in his final game as Hullbridge Sports manager as his team scored an injury-time winner to progress in the FA Vase.

Jimmy Cox scored in the 93rd minute to put Sports 3-2 ahead for the 10 man hosts.

Sports had enjoyed good results in the competition in the past and impressed again against Wembley.

Charlie Buffin was halted in the early throes of the clash, but the striker was to make his next chance stick.

A Sam Taylor cross was met by Buffin and he made no mistake to open the scoring on 24 minutes.

But Wembley were up for the fight. Only a last-ditch block by Aaron Hunwicks and goalkeeper Jamie Merralls preserved the clean sheet.

Into the second half, a close range finish levelled matters but Sports were in the mood.

An own goal put Sports ahead before a red card for Merralls threatened to change the game.

Wembley equalised from the penalty spot only for Cox to step in.

Aaron Russell, in fine form, put Wakering ahead only for FC Romania to hit back before the break.

The final blow looked like it had arrived three minutes into additional time as Wakering conceded.

But Ollie Woodhouse still had time to level and ensure a replay on Wednesday.

Essex Senior League leaders Basildon United came unstuck against local rivals Southend Manor.
