Bracknell Town are in the all important Berks & Bucks County FA Senior Cup Second Round draw hat after a come-from-behind win over Aylesbury on Tuesday night.

The Robins waited until the second half to turn on the style and were 1-0 down at half time after Bruno Brita scored in the 23rd minute.

The equaliser came on 50 minutes from centre back Matt Day who rifled the ball home from the far post, we could describe it further but you are better off just watching it:

Ten minutes later it was 2-1 as Gavin James finished a ball from Liam Ferdinand and it was game over on 79 minutes when Day got his second of the evening from a free kick on the edge of the box after a foul on Joe Grant.

With three minutes to go there was still time for debutant Sal Abubakar to get on the score sheet – on for Ferdinand, Abubakar was on hand to finish off a strike from Seb Bowerman while the home side scored a 90th minute consolation through Aaron King.

The draw for the second round of the County Cup will include sides from Reading FC and MK Dons, making it – as per last season – a mouth watering proposition.

Across in the Velocity Trophy, the Bostik League Cup competition the Robins will have to wait to find out their next opponents after floodlight failure before kick off put paid to the Egham Town vs Whyteleafe fixture.

A full round up of Monday and Tuesday night’s action is here.
