They left it late, but Peterborough Sports have set up a mouth-watering FA Cup tie at home to higher-level Stafford Rangers on September 2.

The city side used their ‘get out of jail free’ card when finding a last-minute equaliser while playing with nine men at United Counties Premier Division side Eynesbury in the preliminary round on Saturday (August 19).

And they had to dig deep again to get the better of Eynesbury on their own turf. Goals in the final five minutes from Josh Moreman and substitute Rogan McGeorge finally sealing a 2-0 success.

Sports will be joined in the first qualifying round by Wisbech Town who scored a shock 2-0 replay success at Spalding United. A superb free kick strike by Josh Ford and a late Billy Smith effort saw the Fenmen to a deserved success.

Wisbech have another tough tie next up as they travel to Kempston Rovers.

Huntingdon’s UCL Division One match at Burton Park Wanderers was postponed because of floodlight failure.

In the Peterborough Premier Division there were aways wins for Sutton Bridge United, ICA Sports and AFC Stanground Sports.

Scott Spearink, Cardin Pierre-Liverpool, Kane Gilbert and Billy Bennett scored in ICA’s 4-2 win at Ketton, while Lee Clemenson and Liam Stokes were the men on the mark for Stanground at Sawtry.

ICA are upto second, but Netherton will overtake them with victory over Thorney at the Grange tonight (August 23).

A point from a home game against Melton Town tonight would be enough to take Blackstones back to the top of United Counties Division One.
