The Non-League Football Paper - - FA CUP SECOND ROUND QUALIFYING - By Kevin An­der­son

CARSHALTON Ath­letic were a cross­bar’s width away from an up­set at Pri­ory Lane, where Eastbourne Bor­ough al­most sur­rended a com­fort­able lead.

The Sports dom­i­nated and surged to 2-0 through a smart Yemi Odubade strike and a Ser­gio Tor­res cracker.

Then a freak­ish own goal from Ian Sim­pemba al­lowed the Robins back, be­fore Odubade’s classy header re­stored the two-goal buffer just be­fore half-time.

Straight af­ter the break 31 be­came 4-1 through Jamie Tay­lor’s unerring fin­ish, and Bor­ough were coast­ing.

But Carshalton dra­mat­i­cally hauled them­selves back via Ra­heem Ster­lingParker and Bobby Price, with the for­mer spurn­ing a glo­ri­ous chance to level it up with just two min­utes to go.
