O'Toole struck three minutes and 16 seconds into stoppage time to clinch a 1-0 victory for Colchester against a resolute Hereford side at Edgar Street to leave his manager full of praise.

"Whenever John-Joe is playing you know he is going to be an absolute nuisance to the opposition," said Boothroyd.

"To score when he did was absolutely perfect, so I'm delighted to be in the third round because this was no easy game.

"My mind was turning to a replay with 20 minutes to go, but I thought we were by far the stronger team.

"I know Hereford had chances and hit the bar a couple of times, but I was pleased with the way we kept going right to the end and that's the mark of a good side."
