Jayden Stockley earns Exeter FA Cup third-round date with West Brom

Jayden Stockley headed an extra-time winner to earn Exeter a 2-1 win over Forest Green and an FA Cup third-round clash with West Brom.
The Grecians looked to be heading out of the competition after Christian Doidge converted a 30th-minute penalty.
The Welsh striker was pulled back by Jordan Moore-Taylor and rolled his spot-kick under Christy Pym for his 12th goal in 11 games.
Exeter appeared to be doomed after Jordan Tillson saw red after 63 minutes for picking up a second yellow card.
Yet the setback spurred them into life and they snatched an equaliser after Keanu Marsh-Brown tripped Kyle Edwards in the box in the 73rd minute.
Pierce Sweeney buried the penalty into the bottom corner to take the tie into extra-time.
Exeter created the better chances in the extra 30 minutes with Jake Taylor's powerful header being tipped on to the post by Bradley Collins.
Forest Green were then reduced to 10 men four minutes into the second period of extra-time after Emmanuel Monthe was shown a second yellow card for a foul on Taylor.
In the end Exeter's pressure paid dividends as Stockley stooped to head home Hiram Boateng's cross in the 115th minute.
