With the game at 0-0 with minutes remaining, it looked like a penalty shootout was going to be required, but Paggies were awarded a late penalty kick after a foul in the box.

Terry Patton held his nerve to slot the ball into the bottom right-hand corner and send Paggies into the next round, where they will face either Burghfield or FC Bentons at home.
