FA Cup: Carshalton Athletic 1-4 Boston United highlights

Andi Thanoj's brace sent Boston United on their way into the FA Cup second round with a 4-1 win over seventh-tier Carshalton Athletic.

Thanoj, whose goal in the previous round put Boston in the main draw, put the visitors ahead with a wonderful free-kick before Luke Shiels doubled his side's lead shortly after.

Christie Pattisson's composed finish got one back for the home side to set up a thrilling last 20 minutes.

But Boston added some gloss to the scoreline, with Thanoj and then Jake Wright scoring in injury time to seal a deserved win.

Sixth-tier Boston took the lead after 33 minutes as Thanoj whipped a free-kick from 20 yards around the wall and into the bottom corner.

That advantage was doubled five minutes later, this time captain Shiels heading home from inside the six-yard box after a corner was nodded back across the goal.

Pattisson halved the deficit with 18 minutes to go, finishing into an empty net after Tommy Bradford's initial effort was parried.

But there was to be no memorable comeback, Thanoj netting his second on the break in injury time as the hosts flooded forward before Wright finished with the last kick of the game.
