Wingate & Finchley were knocked out of the FA Cup following a 4-3 defeat on Tuesday in their first round qualifying tie replay against Biggleswade Town.
The Blues were held to a goalless draw at home against their Ryman Southern League opponents on Sunday to set up the midweek replay.
Wingate fell behind in the 13th minute but clawed their way back into the match on the half hour mark after David Laird was tripped in the Biggleswade Town box and Leon Smith scored the resultant penalty.
Ahmet Rifat then slotted home at the back post from a corner to hand the Blues the lead but the sides went in level at the break after some poor defensive work from the visitors.
Eight minutes after the break the away side retook the lead as Marc Weatherstone headed home from close range however Wingate crashed out of the cup as Biggleswade Town scored two late goals.
