FA Cup: Chesterfield stun Portsmouth, Cray Valley earn Charlton replay

Chesterfield have dumped the 2008 winners, Portsmouth, out of the FA Cup in the first round – earning a home tie against Leyton Orient in the second round, while eighth-tier Cray Valley (PM) equalised to set up a replay at home to League One Charlton.

Tom Naylor scored the only goal for Paul Cook’s Chesterfield side, heading Liam Mandeville’s free-kick into the back of the net in the 32nd minute against his former club. Colby Bishop’s header was kept out by Harry Alfred Tyrer while Abu Kamara headed wide from Paddy Lane’s cross as League One leaders Pompey tried to find a leveller.

Ryan Colclough almost doubled Chesterfield’s lead late on, but the National League leaders and 1997 FA Cup semi-finalists had done enough to advance to the second round, where they will face another League One side in Orient.

Isthmian League South East side Cray Valley earned a replay after a 1-1 draw with Charlton in front of 2,000 of their fans at The Valley. Scott Fraser put the home side in front after just nine minutes, but the visitors drew level when a cross by Kyrell Lisbie – whose father Kevin used to play for The Addicks – was turned into the home net by Lucas Ness early in the second half.
