Hornchurch suffered a 2-0 defeat to league rivals Bowers & Pitsea while Wingate & Finchley lost 3-0 to Corinthian Casuals.

Second-half strikes from Danny Norton and Bradley Sach meant the injury-hit Urchins missed out on the chance to host Aldershot Town in the fourth qualifying round of the FA Cup.

Both sides played out a goalless first-half with chances being created at both ends.

Hornchurch will now look to bounce back when they return to league action on Saturday away to East Thurrock United.
