Bromsgrove Sporting 2 (Broadhurst 32' Fisher 75') Loughborough Students 0

Two headed goals helped guide Bromsgrove Sporting to Emirates FA Cup success over Loughborough Students on Saturday afternoon.

Both goals came via corners, with Leon Broadhurst and Cody Fisher on hand to knock them in.

Will Shorrock had an effort for the home side go wide in the 16th minute, with Loughborough's Matthew Bowman missing the target minutes later.

Fisher almost scored in the 29th minute, but he saw his shot blocked for a corner.

The deadlock was broken 32 minutes in, as a pinpoint Kieran Dunbar corner was headed in by Broadhurst.

Nathan Hayward struck just over with a little under 20 minutes remaining - the equaliser came in the 75th minute, as a Shorrock corner was nodded in towards the back post by Fisher, who was scoring on his debut for the club.

The visitors had chances to get on the scoresheet in the final moments, both courtesy of Ethan O'Toole. The first from inside the six yard box and the second from the edge of the area - both wide of the mark, however.

In reaching the second qualifying round, it is the furthest stage Sporting have ever got to in the famous competition in their relatively short history.
