The Non-League Football Paper - - FA CUP SECOND ROUND QUALIFYING - By Matt Pan­ter

IZAK Reid’s sec­ond-half header earned Stafford Rangers a shock FA Cup win over Tamworth.

Rangers, reach­ing the third qual­i­fy­ing round for the first time in ten years, had the bet­ter of a drab first half, Dan West­wood fir­ing wide.

The Lambs upped the tempo af­ter the break and Dar­ryl Knight’s free-kick landed on the roof of the net while Cal­lum Pow­ell’s strike clipped the bar, the best of their chances.

Jack Langston’s low drive was saved by Tamworth keeper Dan Jezeph be­fore Stafford went in front on 63 min­utes as Reid headed in Osebi Abadaki’s cross.

Pow­ell was de­nied by Adam White­house, as Tamworth’s cause be­came more ur­gent and they were un­able to find an equaliser.
