Evo-Stik League South club Cleethorpes Town pulled off an upset in their Buildbase FA Trophy Second Qualifying Round replay at home against Evo-Stik League Premier side Hednesford Town.

Cleethorpes, who are in their first season in the Trophy after being finalists in last season`s Buildbase FA Vase Final at Wembley, came back from a goal down to win 2-1.

The hosts fell behind after 22 minutes when Jordan Graham was somehow allowed a free header in the box.

The Pitmen held their lead until the half-time break, but just 7 minutes after the restart, the Owls were back on level terms when Jonathan Oglesby swung the ball in and it beat everyone, including the visiting keeper, before nestling in the back of the net.

If that was fortunate, Cleethorpes winner with less than 4 minutes of normal time to go was a lovely move which saw Luke Mascall produce a nice piece of skill before cutting the ball back for Danny North to fire home at the near post.

To add to the Pitmen`s misery, Darren Campion was given his marching orders in stoppage time after a fracas in the middle of the pitch.

Cleethorpes will now host Vanarama National League North side Spennymoor Town in the Third Qualifying Round at Bradley FDC on Saturday, 25th November.
