Eastwood pulled off the surprise of the day as they beat League Two high-flyers Wycombe 2-0 in their FA Cup second-round tie at Coronation Park.

A superb curling effort from Lindon Meikle gave the Northern Premier League minnows the lead in the 34th minute after some good work by Anton Foster down the right flank.

The underdogs then put their name into the hat for the third round draw when Peter Knox finished a superb counter-attacking move in the 89th-minute.

Non-league side Forest Green booked their passage into the third round with a 2-0 win over League Two side Rochdale at the New Lawn Stadium.

The Blue Square Premier side took the lead after 27 minutes when Jonathan Smith struck to the delight of the home fans. Joshua Low then doubled the lead 11 minutes into the second period when he scored from just inside the area after a break from a Rochdale corner.

A Matt Fryatt hat-trick helped Leicester to a 3-2 win over Dagenham and Redbridge at the Walkers Stadium.

Matt Richie's fourth goal of the season gave the visitors a shock lead before Fryatt shot into the roof of the net to equalise two minutes later. Ben Strevens' low drive put the League Two side back ahead before Fryatt converted a 30th-minute spot kick to level before scoring the winner on 55 minutes.

Hartlepool survived a second-half scare to see off Blue Square North side Fleetwood 3-2 at the Highbury Stadium.

The home side went ahead with an Andy Bell strike after 14 minutes before Michael Mackay turned home a Jamie McCunnie cross to equalise. The League One side then raced into a two-goal lead thanks to Mackay's second and Joel Porter's 12th strike of the season.

Adam Marlow pulled one back for Fleetwood after 66 minutes but, despite more pressure, they could not find an equaliser.
