The visitors brought on Ryan Benn and Filliter as they looked for an equaliser. With five minutes left, Posset finally got the goal they deserved when Dunn netted from close range.

In extra time a fine run from Dunn and a through ball to Gilhespy saw him upended in the box and the resulting penalty was blasted wide by Fowler.

In the second half of extra time, Dunn completed his hat-trick with a fine low shot and then got his and Posset’s fourth goal in the dying minutes to seal the victory.
