Beaten in extra time

There was late cup heartache for Town on Tuesday evening, when Bedworth’s Loyiso Recci finally settled the First Qualifying Round fixture with an extra time strike in the tie’s replay.

In the nearly three and a half hours of football that preceded Recci’s clincher, little had separated the two local rivals – with the first game at Butlin Road ending all square last Saturday, thanks to a Tyrone Fagan equaliser.
