Trailing 1-0 at the break, debutant Niall Williams was on target for the Blues in the second half, while Luke Lincoln netted a late winner to complete the upset.

Steven Begley also made his Dunstable debut, but Darren Feighery’s side were behind after just 12 minutes when Charlie Strutton fired home. Blues settled into their stride after going a goal down, although it was after the break that they started to look more dangerous on the counter-attack.

They were level after 59 minutes when Kerran Birch and James Potter won possession in midfield allowing Lincoln to set up Williams for a composed finish.

With their tails up, Blues set about netting the winner and they did that with 13 minutes remaining as Dale Turney’s shot was parried by keeper Michael Power-Simpson, allowing Birch to pick up the rebound and feed Lincoln who made it 2-1. Chalfont tried to up their game in the closing stages, sending over a number of crosses, but these were ably dealt with by Lucas Flood and Graeme Buchanan, as Blues progressed. They will face Hillingdon Borough in the next round.

Dunstable, who drew 3-3 at Conley Heath in the league on Saturday, entertain Kentish Town at the weekend and host Langford on Tuesday.
