Tyriq Hunte's first Aylesbury United goal proved decisive as the Ducks won 1-0 at Tilbury to progress from the 1st Qualifying Round of the FA Cup.

The big striker produced an exquisite finish to steer the ball over the home goalkeeper and into the far corner having won the race with the custodian early in the second half.

Prior to that the two evenly matched sides hadn't found a way through in a goalless first half, although Aylesbury had had the clearer openings.

And it was they who went ahead on 54 minutes.

That was a long time for Tilbury to mount an assault on United's goal, which they duly did - but for the second game in a row the Ducks defended superbly. The Dockers threw everything at them, but there was no way through Aylesbury's rearguard.

The Ducks will now be looking keenly at Monday's FA Cup draw to learn who their 2nd Qualifying Round opponents will be.
