AFC Totton 1-6 Bristol Rovers

Joe Anyinsah scores Bristol Rovers' opener
Joe Anyinsah's opener put Bristol Rovers on their way to victory

Bristol Rovers put on a fine exhibition of clinical finishing to thrash Totton and reach the FA Cup third round.

Rovers led 3-0 after 13 minutes, with Joe Anyinsah and Mustapha Carayol firing in brilliant drives and Dan Woodards hitting a 25-yard half-volley.

Byron Anthony converted a header before Nathaniel Sherborne did the same for Southern League Totton.

Eliot Richards scored from 12 yards, Rovers' Ben Swallow was sent off for a lunge and Richards slotted a sixth.

Totton, of the seventh tier, beat Bradford Park Avenue 8-1 in the first round and were dreaming of another day in the headlines. They started the brighter at the Testwood Stadium but were level for only eight minutes.

We tore Rovers apart at times - Ritchie

The League Two visitors took the lead when Anyinsah beat one defender and sidestepped another before finding the top corner from 12 yards out.

And two minutes later it was 2-0, when Carayol ran from the centre circle and drilled home via the crossbar from the edge of the area.

Woodards gave the Pirates total control when the ball bounced up to him to fire home another screamer on his weaker left foot.

The hosts could have had a goal before the break when Jonathan Davies's shot beat Scott Bevan but was excellently blocked on the line by Andy Dorman.

Richards, who would end up giving the scoreline the gloss, replaced Carayol in the 41st minute, with the winger fired up after being booked for a physical clash with Totton assistant manager Sean New.

We spoilt Totton's party - Buckle

Totton manager Stuart Ritchie said at half-time that he felt they would be back in it if they could score and after the break they were desperately unlucky not to cut the deficit.

Bevan pulled off a stunning double save from Sherborne and substitute Mark Osman and then Davies had his flick blocked off the line by Sawyer.

Minutes later they were made to pay for their inability to take their chances when Anthony headed home from a Richards corner.

The non-league hosts finally got themselves on the scoresheet when Sherborne finished Tom Baddeley's cross.

However, that joy was shortlived when the ball broke to Richards kindly in the box to lash home.

The visitors finished with 10 men when Swallow was sent off after less than six minutes on the pitch for fouling Carl Pettefer.

Michael Charles had a chance to get a second goal for the hosts but Bevan saved his initial effort and he fired wide the rebound from six yards. The substitute then just failed to convert Mike Gosney's wayward shot.

And Richards made it 6-1, a harsh scoreline on the Stags, when he slotted home after Matt Harrold had set him up.
