Hendon manager Jimmy Gray believes his side were deserving of their 1-0 FA Cup win against Little Common on Saturday.
Romario Jonas' goal in the 81st minute sealed the win for his side against a team two steps below them in the football pyramid.
The Greens had a number of chances to go ahead but finally took the lead late on through Jonas' powerful header.
Gray said: "Games like that are always difficult. The pitch was dry and bobbly.
"It's a cup final for them. We just needed to get the result.
"Normally if you do things correctly, in the end you should go through.
"We had a few chances to make it more comfortable but they were in our faces.
"They gave a good account of themselves."
Hendon will now face the winner of the replay between Deeping Rangers and AFC Sudbury in the second qualifying round.
