FA Cup: Cheltenham Town 2-0 Ebbsfleet United highlights

Cheltenham progressed to the second round of the FA Cup with a battling replay win over Ebbsfleet.

The goals came from Tyrone Barnett and substitute Alex Addai in the second half and the Robins will travel to Accrington Stanley in the second round.

Ebbsfleet were close to opening the scoring on the break in the 34th minute, with Corey Whitely denied by Scott Flinders' block.

Ryan Broom then went close for Cheltenham in the 41st minute, but his effort was just wide after Chris Hussey's cross was parried into his path by Nathan Ashmore.

The deadlock was broken in the 66th minute when Addai, who had just come off the bench, beat his man and crossed from the left.

It was helped on by Luke Varney and headed in by a diving Barnett for his third goal of the season.

Danny Kedwell had a sight of goal for Ebbsfleet late on, but Will Boyle blocked well twice.

Ebbsfleet's misery was compounded in the 82nd minute when Sam Magri was sent off for two yellow cards in quick succession, one for a foul on Addai and the second for dissent.

And Addai tapped in the second deep into stoppage time after Varney's low shot was parried by Ashmore.
