If Truro City had not scored in the last couple of minutes and their FA Trophy tie had ended goalless, Witham would have been making the trip to Cornwall for the replay as the visitors refused to play the first game to a finish. The mileage for a round trip Witham to Truro is a little under 700 miles. At an average speed of 55mph, that is more than six hours each way. It's just as well the players are all full-time professionals …

Here are four comparisons of round trips from stadium to stadium in Britain for national teams.

Wembley Stadium to Celtic Park, Glasgow, and back, is about 800 miles
Twickenham Stadium to Murrayfield Stadium (Edinburgh) and back is about 820 miles
Wembley Stadium to the Stade de France near Paris round trip is 600 miles
Millennium Stadium to the King Badouin Stadium in Brussels (where Wales played on Sunday evening) is 750 miles round trip.
