Eastleigh 3-0 Stourbridge: Spitfires win to book Crewe second round tie

Eastleigh booked an FA Cup second-round tie at home to League Two side Crewe after seeing off 10-man Stourbridge.

After the National League side had the better of an entertaining first half, Eastleigh led when Scott Rendell scored from the spot after Sam Smart was brought down in the box.

Seventh-tier Stourbridge had Jordan Williams sent off for fouling Danny Hollands when through on goal, and Smart doubled their lead when Charlie Seaman's resulting free-kick fell into his path.

Reda Johnson guided home a corner from close range to give Eastleigh the margin of victory their dominance deserved.

Stourbridge goalkeeper James Wren saved a penalty from Rendell in the initial tie - revealing his father had told him where to dive - but was sent the wrong way this time as the former Aldershot striker got Eastleigh off and running at the Silverlake Stadium.

The visiting underdogs have reached the first round in six of the past 10 years but were undone largely by winger Smart, whose goal was his first for Eastleigh.
