Cirencester Town win FA Cup Replay against Dorchester Town in another thrilling match between the teams.
Cirencester Town 3 - 1 Dorchester Town
Cirencester Town progressed to the next round of the FA Cup following another thrilling and hard fought match against Dorchester Town.
The visitors opened the scoring in the 10th minute when MATT OLDRING managed to finish from close range after an atempted Cirencester clearance kick struck a team-mate enabling Jonah Ayunga to latch on to the loose ball and square across the front edge of the home 6 yard box.
The Centurions levelled the score eleven minutes before the interval when GETHIN JONES placed a powerful header inside the right post following a left wing corner kick.
The home side took the lead in the 63rd minutes following a quick break down their left flank that created an opening for ZACK KOTWICA and he converted with great aplomb as he dummied to shoot with his left but switched to his right to calmly place his shot inside the right post.
Dorchester were reduced to 10 men with 7 minutes of normal time remaining when Nathan Walker was dismissed and Cirencester scored the final goal of the game two minutes later as LEIGH HENRY headed a left wing corner kick into the back of the net from the edge of the 6 yard box.
