But each time their forwards broke through the West Hallam back line, they found home keeper Lee Attewell in fine form, saving his side three times in one-on-one situations .

Holbrook continued to look the side most likely to score, but it was West Hallam who took the lead, Elliot Straw turning smartly in the penalty area to poke his shot home. Minutes later Jake Adams made it 2-0.

But Holbrook came back when Webster stooped to head in at the far post and with ten minutes remaining the visitors equalised when a shot from the edge of the area was deflected in.

It was a tense finish - Joe Daubney went close for Holbrook, but it was Jake Adams who reacted quickest at the other end to score his second of the match and give West Hallam a hard earned 3-2 victory.
