OXFORD City came from behind to win in extra-time and seal their place in the next round of the Emirates FA Cup.

The Hoops needed a last minute header from Canice Carroll to earn a replay at Plymouth Parkway, and again left it late to win the third qualifying round tie.

Ross Jenkins’ side twice went close during the early stages in Devon. Lewis Coyle hit a long-range effort which went inches over the crossbar, before Aaron Williams-Bushell had a volley saved by Kyle Moore.

The hosts took the lead on 37 minutes when Billy Palfrey headed in from a corner.

A Klaidi Lolos shot four minutes into extra-time slipped through the gloves of Moore, to give City the lead.

Parker grabbed his brace with eight minutes to go, to ensure the Hoops travel to Hornchurch in the fourth qualifying round.
