Predictably it was the League One high fliers who made the early running with Dominic Green forcing home keeper Dale Brightly in to action with a dangerous free kick in the second minute.

Hornchurch's first opportunity arrived in the ninth minute as Kris Lee found half a yard in the box only to fire over after Peterborough had failed to clear a corner.

The dangerous George Boyd then had a shot cleared off the line for the visitors before the non-league side had a goal chalked off after Dean Green was adjudged to have handled Lee's cross over the line.

But there was to be a late twist in the tale as Brightly spilt a seemingly straightforward Boyd strike from the edge of the box and Mackail-Smith was on hand to tuck home the rebound.

Posh will now face either Accrington Stanley or Tranmere in the next round.

What Is It That FIFA Actually Do?

That's the question raised timidly by someone sat at the back of the room, whilst others remind that UEFA aren't perfect either. Plus a few more gone on to better XIs...

Time To Step Up, Mr Platini...

UEFA should step up and extend the Euros to replace FIFA's tarnished World Cup, say a couple of mailboxers. Also: all hail Carlo, King of the Kop, and plenty more Budget XIs...
