A 'see saw game' saw both sides in front at various stages, but it woz 'The Bad Blue Boys' who eventually came oot on top with 2 goals near the end of the game to put them 3-2 up after losin 2-1
The final nail in 'The Pit Yaakers' coffin woz hammered in deep into stoppage time when Nellis made it 4-2 to the home side and progress to the 2nd prelimanary roond!

Thats 2 roonds off the forst roond proper on the (very lang!) road to Wembley!
