FOOTBALL: Daniels hold off Holbeach in the Cup

Have your say

Holbeach United 1 - 2 Stamford

THE Daniels rode their luck in this afternoon's FA Cup clash at Carters Park to beat Holbeach United 2-1.

Stamford went ahead through a brave, headed goal scored by skipper Richard Jones, who required several minutes treatment for a knock he took in the process of scoring.

Holbeach then had many of the best chances with the Daniels saved by the post and two clearances off the line, but an excellent Stamford move led to their second, scored midway through the second half by Jordan Smith.

Holbeach pulled one back from the penalty spot, Andrew Tidswell scoring after Elliott Shilliam was red-carded for bringing down Sam Mulready, but Stamford clung on.
