Non-league side Eastwood Town shocked Wycombe Wanderers with a 2-0 win at Coronation Park to book their place in the third round of the FA Cup .

Goals in each half from Lindon Meikle and Peter Knox stunned Eastwood Town's Leage Two opponents to secure the upset.

Meikle opened the scoring after 34 minutes for the UniBond Premier Division side to leave Peter Taylor's men shell-shocked.

Substitute Knox then wrapped up a famous victory in the final minute to send Paul Cox's men into the third round dreaming of a potential money-spinning tie against a Premier League side.

The home side almost made a dream start when Richard Dunning's free-kick was flicked on by Mark Hume and Russell Cooke headed against the crossbar.

Wycombe were also denied by woodwork themselves when Lewwis Spence's 12th-minute effort rattled the post.

The breakthrough did come just after the half-hour mark when right winger Meikle bent a stunning left-footed effort into the bottom corner from 20 yards.

Knox made sure on the stroke of full-time when Todd dispossessed David McCracken and squared for the substitute to finish the scoring.
