Conference North side Brackley Town pull off a major upset in the first round of the FA Cup by beating League One outfit Gillingham 1-0.

Conference North side Brackley Town have pulled off a major FA Cup upset by beating League One's Gillingham 1-0 in the first round.

The visitors put Brackley under pressure early in the match, with Charlie Lee forcing a decent save from Alastair Worby with a swerving effort in the seventh minute.

Worby was called into action again less than 10 minutes later, this time keeping out Adebayo Akinfenwa's header from close range.

The hosts then took a shock lead in the 21st minute when Glenn Walker's strike wrong-footed Gillingham keeper Stuart Nelson and went in.

Gillingham pushed on for an equaliser in the second half, but Brackley held on and almost doubled their advantage when Walker saw an effort tipped past the post after jinking past a couple of players.

The League One side continued to probe for an equaliser but could not find it as Brackley secured a famous victory to move into the next round.
