Brakes recovered from conceding an early penalty to record their fifth successive victory in all competitions as a second-half goal glut saw off the spirited challenge of Midland League Lye Town, writes Paul Edwards.
Leamington avoided another ignominious cup exit at the hands of lower-league opposition, with a man-of-the match performance from Tony Breeden sparing their blushes in this FA Trophy clash, writes Paul Okey.
Leamington have picked up some memorable results in their two spells in the National League North and this one was right up there with them as they edged out in-form Chester on their first visit to south Warwickshire, writes Paul Edwards.
Leamington boss Paul Holleran says his side must make the most of a run of home games as they aim to bounce back from a disappointing September in which they took three points from a possible 12 and got knocked out of the FA Cup.
If Paul Holleran had any hair left he would surely be tearing it out as for the umpteenth time this season his side conceded a late goal which led to defeat in a game they could quite easily have won, writes Paul Edwards.
