Matt Cocker rises unchallenged to power home our first goal this morning.

They may be through to the Third Round and a trip to the Highlands to face League IV side Serralta Team, but Brook Street’s reserves were made to fight all the way to get past Flying Dutchman in this morning’s Hattrick Scottish Cup Second Round tie.

“There wasn’t much between the sides throughout the match, but we pretty much took our chances when they arose”, admitted Marcus Lövman afterwards.

“The game wasn’t a classic by any stretch of the imagination, and we rode our luck a bit at times”, he added. “I’d also agree that the scoreline flatters us, but we’re through which, at the end of the day, is all that matters”.

Matt Cocker had opened the scoring just after the half hour mark, but the home side tied things up four minutes from the break through Janusz Lemieszek. Garabed Palasyan fired Brook Street back in front in the sixty-third minute, and Zsolt Baboss scored our decisive third goal three minutes later.
