National League South side Whitehawk created drama thanks to substitute Jordan Rose’s 95th minute leveller to tie the game at 1-1 with Dagenham & Redbridge.
The Daggers started the game superbly, as 40-year-old striker Jamie Cureton swept the ball home with a double nutmeg to send the home side into the ascendancy.
However, the Hawks weren’t prepared to accept defeat as they mounted their comeback through Paul Lorraine’s acrobatic effort, which was well saved.
Whitehawk then went close again in the second half through Arnaud Mendy and Danny Mills before their equaliser.
Sam Deering collected the ball on the right side of the area before a neat turn allowed him to loft the ball into the box where Rose was on hand to power the ball home with his head and set up a replay, in which the winner will earn a lucrative trip to Everton.
