Welling United were held in a 1-1 draw with Grays Athletic in their FA Cup fourth qualifying round match at Mill Road.

Grays - who operate two divisions below their opponents in the Isthmian League - took the lead on 75 minutes before Sam Corne equalised late on to spare the Wings’ blushes.

The replay will take place at Park View Road on Tuesday night, with a place in the first round proper, and the opportunity to face teams from Leagues One and Two up for grabs.

Elsewhere, Bromley crashed out of the competition after losing 2-1 at home to Eastleigh.

In the National League South, league leaders Ebbsfleet United were held to a goalless draw at Chelmsford City, who knocked them out of the FA Cup earlier in the month, while Dartford moved up to 12th with a 2-1 win at Bishop’s Stortford.
