Three second half goals in 20 minutes saw Clipstone come from 3-0 down to win an enthralling FA Cup tie 4-3.

The Cobras looked to be heading out when Donald Chimalilo gave the home side a 3-0 advantage in the 36th minute, adding to earlier goals from Will Waudby and Gareth Barlow.

However a superb Tim Gregory header from a Julian Topliss cross just before half time ensured the visitors went in at half time with a little hope.

The game turned just after the hour mark. A smart turn and shot by Topliss went just wide of the post and when Barton ‘keeper Nathan Popple took a short goal kick a defensive mix up presented Mark Carter with a chance to fire the ball into the unguarded goal.

The Cobras were back on level terms in the 76th minute when another defensive mix up involving Popple presented Carter with his second goal of the evening.

It got even better in the 82nd minute when a Topliss free kick was headed home by substitute James Munson who had only been on the pitch for four minutes.

Clipstone will now travel to Ansty Nomads on Saturday 25th August as they look to progress further in the FA Cup.
