Folkestone Invicta will host Margate in the FA Cup first qualifying round after they beat Erith & Belvedere 3-1 in Tuesday's preliminary round replay at the Fullicks Stadium.

Neil Cugley's side needed extra-time, though, with Ian Draycott having levelled the game at 1-1 after Alfie May put the Deres in front.

Draycott's second goal of the game gave Invicta the lead for the first time and an own goal sent the Southern Counties East side crashing out of the competition.

Hythe Town also knocked out lower-league opposition at the second time of asking, beating Lordswood 2-0 at Reachfields.

The home side had Josh Burchell sent-off but goals from Craig Thompson and Sam Conlon, inside the last 12 minutes, secured the Cannons a home tie against Whitstable Town, who won 3-1 at home to Walton Casuals in their replay.

However, Deal Town reached the end of the road when a 90th-minute goal condemned them to a 2-1 defeat away at Chessington & Hook United.
