Bognor Regis Town 1-4 Kingstonian

Bobby Traynor continued his fine start to the season, firing a hat trick as Ks overcame a post-break wobble to see off the league's bottom side by four goals to one. It set K's going on the road to Wembley, quite literally following the draw for the next round, and marked four games without a defeat for their reconstructed side.

The game started quietly until Lewis Ide forced Luke Garrard into a fine save on 20 minutes with a powerful low effort. Carl Wilson-Denis had the first shot on goal for Ks, forcing Anthony Ender to make a save with an effort from the same distance. Ender had to make a much more difficult save on 34 minutes, tipping away a Traynor header after good work on the left by Dean Lodge.

Ks began to take greater control of the match, although their possession would not lead to another chance until stoppage time. The chance was perfectly taken though, with Lodge laying off a Lee Hall cross to perfectly tee up an unmarked Traynor. From around 15 yards, he made no mistake in beating Ender at the near post.

The good work was undone after the break, however. After a let-off when Mickey Demetriou hit the woodwork five minutes after the interval, the Bognor striker equalled on the hour mark, heading a cross past Garrard at the far post.

Ks recaptured the lead six minutes later though, thanks to the ever-familiar combination of a Traynor penalty won by Lodge. Bognor right back Jack Smith was the unfortunate defender who tripped the pacey winger and although Ender got a fair hand to the spot-kick, he could only push it further into the corner of the goal.

Alan Dowson withdrew a fatigued Wilson-Denis in favour of debutant Christian Jolley, a move that reaped immediate benefits. The young winger's first touch for the club was to execute a neat one-two with Karl Beckford, and his next saw him get in behind the defence and tee Lodge up for a shot. Lodge slightly sliced his effort from around the penalty spot, but that only put it even further out of Ender's reach before cannoning in off the post.

The Rocks were unwilling to go down without a fight and Max Hustwick had to clear a late effort off the line. The scoreline would only get worse for Bognor however in injury time, as Ender struggled to control a Stuart Tuck backpass before Traynor dispossessed him and tapped in to complete his hat trick.
