Gloucester City 0-2 Fleetwood Town

Fleetwood booked their place in the second round of the FA Cup with victory at Conference North side Gloucester.

David Ball gave the Cod Army an early lead when his tame effort from outside the area beat unsighted Gloucester keeper Mike Green.

Steven Schumacher hit the post from the penalty spot after Ball was tripped.

Gloucester forced a good save from Scott Davies as Tyler Weir burst into the box, but Jon Parkin wrapped up the win by rounding Green and tapping home.

VIEW FROM THE DRESSING ROOM

Fleetwood Town manager Graham Alexander told BBC Radio Lancashire:

"I thought we did well in patches and were frustrating in others.

"You're never going to dominate a game for 90 minutes, no matter who you're playing. To be fair to Gloucester, they gave it a right good go and credit to them.

"We missed a couple of good chances to extend our lead and, if we'd done that, it might have been an easier afternoon for us."
