Craig Robinson was the hero for Warrington Town as the non-league club marched into the second round of the FA Cup courtesy of a 1-0 giant-killing victory over Exeter.

Appearing in the FA Cup first round for the first time in their 65-year history, Warrington sat four divisions and 100 places below Exeter prior to kick-off but they defied the odds thanks to a heroic second-half defensive performance.

That came after the brother of MK Dons boss Karl Robinson, Craig, had sent the fans of the eighth-tier Evo-Stik Division One North side wild by opening the scoring after seven minutes, which proved to be the winning goal.

Bit of trouble for 'Arry

QPR manager Harry Redknapp had to be carried to the Directors' Box ahead of his team's pre-season friendly with Exeter City at St James Park.

The 66-year-old had knee surgery on Tuesday and could be on crutches for six weeks.

He was unable to walk up the steep steps of the Flybe stand, and had to be carried on his wheelchair by stewards. A QPR fan also helped carry him.

The match finished goal-less, and the two sides will meet again on August 6 in the Capital One Cup.
