Rochdale 2 – 3 FC United of Manchester
(HT 0-1)

There were stunning scenes tonight when a last-gasp goal by Michael Norton put FC United of Manchester into the second round of the FA Cup with an injury-time win over Rochdale and now only ninety minutes from the dream tie of playing Manchester United.

Nicky Platt’s chip gave United the lead just before half time after he was put through by Jerome Wright.
Jake Cotterill made it 2-0 with a stunning strike before Anthony Elding headed one back for the hosts.
Craig Dawson’s header from a corner levelled it before Norton poached the winner from Dale keeper Josh Lillis
