TEN men Alcester Town booked their place in the League Cup semi-finals following a last gasp goal from Jamie Bailey.

Substitute Louis Bridges picked out Bailey with a pin-point cross to convert on 89 minutes and clinch a clash with Coventrians in the last four.

Alcester boss Danny Janes stuck with the same side that had beaten Castle Vale the previous week but it was Solihull who made all the early running.

They fired wide after four minutes when it seemed easier to score and then saw an effort from Tom Reynolds rattle the crossbar.

Bailey then fired into the side-netting when he only had Solihull's goalkeeper to beat before Kalach fired against the post.

But the match threatened to turn on its head just before half time when Matt Fearon was sent off.

Despite bring down to 10 men, Alcester carved out the better chances.

Will Beach fired against the crossbar while Bailey went close again as Alcester stepped up the pace before netting their late winner.

A delighted Janes said: "Solihull should have scored at least two goals. If they had scored them, it would have been a completely different game - but we got a bit of luck when we needed it.

"To have Matt Fearon sent off just before half time was a massive blow but instead of dwelling on that decision, the players went onto deliver a second half based around desire, commitment and togetherness to grind out a result."

This Saturday Alcester Town travel to Shipston Excelsior for a Midland League Division Three match
