[FA CUP PRELIMINARY ROUND]

VS Rugby's miserable league start to the season continued into the Cup.

They have only one point from five league matches, not the best form to take into an FA Cup tie and it showed.

They were in trouble early on and could have gone behind but Darren Horne fired wide of an open goal and Richard Lavery headed over.

Rugby had their moments however and Matt Kerr floated over a superb centre which fell perfectly for Ashley Warner, but no one was in the goalmouth to supply the finishing touch to his low cross.

Rugby's best effort came two minutes before the break when Kerr's shot was tipped against the woodwork by goalkeeper Mark Hart. From the resulting corner kick Hart nearly gifted VS a goal when he dropped the ball in the crowded goalmouth but Richard Lavery was on hand to boot it clear.

The decisive goal came in the 71st minute when a long clearance found Richard Holt in the clear. He ran on to lob the ball into the net over Rugby's goalkeeper Mark Ullah.
