Fairford Town produced a five-star performance on Saturday to book their place in the draw for the next round after thrashing Abingdon Town 5-1 at home on Saturday.

Jody Bevan’s side were only 1-0 up at the break at Cinder Lane as Connor Thompson’s strike separated the two teams.

Abingdon drew level in the opening exchanges of the second period but Fairford raised their game from there are roared to a dominant win.

Callum Preece restored the hosts’ advantage from the penalty spot and Jon Thomas made it 3-1 before Thompson struck twice more to complete his hat-trick and wrap up the victory.

Town boss Jody Bevan insisted his side should have won by more, he said: "We should have won by a considerably bigger margin and we made real hard work of the game. We will be punished if we continue to be as wasteful in front of goal as we have been in last two games."

Fairford will face Shortwood United at home in the next round after the Nailsworth side beat Tuffley Rovers 5-0.

Bevan added: "Shortwood will be a good test for us. They have obviously improved rapidly since the end of last season and we'll be taking nothing for granted."

Fairford welcome Longlevens on Tuesday.
