Enfield Town's FA Cup dream was brought to an end by Maidstone United last night as the National League side triumphed 3-1 after extra time at the Queen Elizabeth II Stadium.

The fourth qualifying round replay was brought to life by Zavon Hines, who missed a penalty in the original tie, but made no mistake just after half-time with a close-range finish.

With three spot kicks given in Saturday's 2-2 draw in Kent, the drama was not over when referee Carl Brook awarded the Stones a chance to kill off the game from 12 yards last night, only for Joe Wright to turn Joe Pigott's shot onto the bar.

Aarone Greene then levelled up on the break to take the tie into extra time, but as the additional 30 minutes began to take its toll Alex Finney tapped in from a corner and Jai Reason giving Maidstone a way through after 210 minutes of football.

Town put their last-minute frustrations from the original tie, during which Maidstone pulled level in the final minutes of added  time, behind them to almost take an early lead at the QES, was Adam Martin headed a cross straight at Lee Worgan.

Ryan Blackman shot over the bar with the hosts on the front foot, until Hines flashed a shot wide after beating two defenders in the visitors' first chance.

They were soon dominating and Pigott should have put them in front, rounding Wright but crossing to no-one in front of an unguarded net.

They continued to press but could not find a first-half breakthrough, but used any half-time frustration to good effect and a smart passing move moments after the restart ended with Hines pouncing from close-range from Sam-Yorke's pass.

Tom Wraight sliced wide before Maidstone missed a golden opportunity to kill the tie, when Sam-Yorke was brought down by Wright, but the goalkeeper redeemed himself to keep out Pigott's penalty and tip it onto the bar.

It was sod's law that Town would turn despair to joy as they countered from a Maidstone free-kick to level. Sam Youngs fed Moore and then Greene, whose low finish beat Worgan and had the hosts believing again.

Moore and Simon Thomas missed decent chances to win the game for Town in the final minutes, but their spurned efforts meant it would go to extra time - which would be dominated by the visitors.

In the 103rd minute Maidstone led again when Finney finished off a corner as Enfield flagged, and as they pushed forward for another equaliser, found themselves two goals behind.

Reason and subsitute Jamar Loza combined to give Maidstone a substantial cushion for the first time in the tie, and one Enfield never looked like breaching as they bowed out with their heads still held high.
