Lowestoft Town: Jessup, Barker, Cole, McAuley, Blake-Tracy, Marsden (Fitzgerald 80 mins), Smith, Rossi Jarvis, Henderson, Spillane, Forshaw
Subs not used; Deeks, Josh Glover, Jamie Waite (only four named)
Histon: Conroy, Gould, Sibanda (Watson 31 mins), York, Bexfield, McGregor, Hyem, Traynier (Ourtibour 12 mins), Allen, Clayton, Chambers-Shaw
Subs not used; Unwin, Chapman, Gwynne
Lowestoft Town went into the game with a thread-bare squad due to injuries and unavailability with Bammant, Reed, Fisk, Ryan Jarvis and Joel Glover all missing. Just the four subs were available for the Trawlerboys, of which two were goalkeepers (Josh and Jamie) and midfielder, Deeks was named but not 100% fit to play.
1-0 Histon Goal (49 mins)
Substitute Ourtibour teed up Clayton on the edge of the area and the midfielder curled home a great effort over Jessup and into the net to silence the home crowd.
2-0 Histon Goal (83 mins)
With the rain falling a corner slipped through the gloves of Jessup in the Lowestoft goal and with Chambers-Shaw on hand for the visitors, he struck through a crowded penalty area to double the score and end the cup dreams of the Trawlerboys.
Lowestoft Town Red Card (88 mins)
Having already gone into the book six minutes earlier, Chris Henderson foolishly reacted angrily to a challenge on Barker and picked up a second booking to see the red card shown.
