Tamworth have been knocked out of the FA Cup, following a 2-1 defeat at home to League One side Bristol City.

Sam Baldock scored in the 83rd minute, to add to Jay Emmanuel-Thomas' first half opener for Bristol City, to make it 2-0, and out of sight for Conference side Tamworth.

The home side did manage to score a late goal through Andy Todd, but it was not enough to put them into the Third Round draw, which takes place shortly.

Mansfield have booked a lucrative FA Cup third-round home clash with Liverpool after seeing off Blue Square Premier rivals Lincoln.

The Stags took the lead in the 14th minute when John Dempster's effort hit the woodwork and rebounded back into the net off unfortunate Lincoln keeper Paul Farman.

Adam Smith struck a superb equaliser for the visitors shortly before half-time, but Louis Briscoe's 77th-minute winner wrapped up a 2-1 win for the hosts and earned them a mouthwatering third-round clash.
