Second Division Cup Round 2: Milford United 1-4 Merlins Bridge 2nds

Merlins Bridge 2nds are into the semi finals of the Second Division Cup after they picked up a win at Milford United on the weekend.

The Wizards enjoyed a strong start at Marble Hall as they went into a 3-0 lead.

Simon Morgan headed them in front from six yards out, before striker Steve McNabney doubled the advantage from close range.

The latter then grabbed his second, beating home keeper Jack Nicholas from the edge of the area.

It was Harry Nicolas who gave The Robins hope with a goal before half time, but although the home side pressed hard in the second half the visitors stood firm.

And sure enough, they sealed a place in the semi finals when Joe Haworth scored late on with a deflected effort that looped into the far corner.

The game was marred though by a by Bridge player James Skudder suffering a badly broken arm, and Telegraph Sport wishes him a full and quick recovery.
