Ten-man Wokingham & Emmbrook were involved in a dramatic 1-0 extra-time defeat to Marlow in the FA Vase on Sunday afternoon.
Shaun Wanklyn's horrific challenge on Marlow's Aaron Baker resulted in a broken leg for the latter and a straight red for the Wokingham player.
The game was then delayed for half an hour while an ambulance arrived at Larges Lane to treat Baker.
Marlow's winner came in the first period of extra time when Marcus Mealing, who had just had an effort tipped round the post, smashed home after being set up by substitute Marcus Richardson's cheeky backheel.
There was better news for Ascot United, who dispatched of Witney Town 2-0 to progress to the second round of the FA Vase.
The Yellamen scored twice in the second half thanks to efforts from Lee Boon - his second in as many games - and Ben Knight, a fine solo goal in stoppage time.
