Swindon Town 2-1 York City

Steven Alzate scored his third goal of the season to fire Swindon to an FA Cup first-round win over non-league York at the County Ground.

National League York were 14 minutes away from taking their League Two hosts to a replay when Alzate struck.

Swindon took the lead in the 12th minute through teenager Scott Twine's first goal for his hometown club.

Jermaine McGlashan cut a cross back from the byline and Twine neatly back-heeled the ball off the post and into the net.

York equalised two minutes before half time when David Ferguson scrambled home from six yards.

Elijah Adebayo should have put Swindon back in front in the 68th minute after James Dunne's pass sent him clear but the striker's weak shot was saved by York goalkeeper Adam Bartlett

Alzate settled an entertaining tie in Swindon's favour in the 76th minute with a close-range shot after Keshi Anderson had crossed.
