Martham were 2-0 up by half-time, but at 1-0 Danny Watts went through and his placed shot hit a post. The second half saw Harling pushing to get back into the game and when Watts went through he was fouled in the box.

Lee West hammered home the penalty and Harling really pressed, but were caught on the break and a great shot made it 3-1. A short free-kick to Lee West and he scored a great goal from 25 yards into the top corner. Ben Chase then went clean through and beat the keeper but his shot went over the bar.
