LYMINGTON Town's FA Cup journey came to an end with a resounding 4-0 defeat at Hereford.

Lymo earned a replay against their National League North opponents following a 2-2 home draw at the weekend.

But it was a much more one-sided affair in Tuesday night's replay.

Lymington's cause was not helped by a red card shown to Luke Churchill, receiving a second yellow on 32 minutes for tripping Levi Andoh.

Dan Smith's header opened the scoring soon after, before Josh Gowling's Bulls ran riot to record their first competitive victory of the season, currently sitting bottom of their league.

Second-half goals came courtesy of Harry Pinchard, Ollie Hulbert and Maziar Kouhyar in front of almost 800 fans at Edgar Street.

Former Cherries defender Josh Gowling told BBC Radio Hereford and Worcester: "You kind of think it but I didn't want to say it but the draw at Lymington (on Saturday) was probably a blessing in disguise.

"To come back here, get a win in front of our fans and a first win at home going into Leamington on Saturday was what we needed to be honest.

"You could feel it around the place it was relief. The lads have put in some really good performance here but we have probably not taken our chances and give away some goals that we shouldn't have.

"It was pleasing that we put on a professional performance."

Hereford will head to Merstham in the third qualifying round of the FA Cup next month, while Lymington return to Southern League Division One South action at home against Larkhall Athletic on Saturday.
