Penalty scuppers East Thurrock hopes
12:31pm Monday 16th September 2013 in Sport
AFC Hornchurch 1,
East Thurrock United 1
ROCKS will play Hornchurch for the third time in 10 days tomorrow night at Rookery Hill in an FA Cup replay.
John Coventry’s side were heading through when Tom Stephen’s 60th minute penalty put them 1-0 up on Saturday.
But sub Carl Rook levelled for the Urchins with about 10 minutes to go to set up a replay.
Rocks gave a much better account of themselves than a week earlier in a 3-0 defeat to their Ryman Premier rivals, and they’ll be confident of progressing from the replay.
