After trailing to a 21st-minute Jordan Mustoe opener at the break, Westley saw his side produce a much-improved second-half performance to score four times.

Substitute Akpo Sodje bagged a brace while Graham Cummins and Paul Huntington were also on target.

Westley said: "We want to do well in this competition and after going 1-0 down I thought the lads responded superbly well in the second half to earn the win.

"We made a few changes and gave some of the lads who have not been featuring a game and I thought they responded superbly and were a credit to themselves.

"I wasn't happy with their first goal and our defending at times is leaving a bit to be desired, but there were more positives than negatives and I was delighted with the appetite they showed to take us a step closer to that Wembley final which we would all love."

m only commenting on this (I don't care about Liverpool) because F365's twitter said I had call Matt Stanger a tw*t (which I don't agree with anyway) but I just wanted to be the first. Am I the first?

Trial And Error Rather Than Transition

S

unday, Sunday. Will there be a fan of either team, who if they are winning after 80 mins, won't still be nervous? This could be anything from 0-0 to 5-5, and no one would bat an eye.
