Seven days after suffering defeat in one cup competition AFC Sporting Gornal turned the tables against the same opponents to boost their hopes in another knockout.

Sporting Gornal, who are also guaranteed at least a top two finish in the main Paycare Division, faced Trysull FC for the third time this term and came from behind to emerge 2-1 victors in the Mini Pro Golf Parks sponsored Chell Cup qualifiers, writes Dave McLean.

The previous weekend, against the same rivals, Sporting had missed out on a place in the last four of the league's flagship Lester Charity Cup when bowing out 3-1.

But Sporting showed great determination this week in the Chell Cup group ties as late efforts from Ash Walker and Corey Massey cancelled out Trysull's early second half opener from Carrick Cheney.

It was the third meeting between the clubs this term. In the main league back in October, Sporting also hit back after trailing to pick up maximum points, running out 5-4 winners in a thriller.

This latest triumph was the only action in the Beacon league this week as the frosty conditions led to several postponements.

In the draw for the semi finals of the European Mezzanine Systems sponsored Lester Charity Cup, Trysull FC will face Wombourne Athletic, while Sedgley & Gornal United West will take on Trysull Athletic, ties to played on a date to be confirmed in March.
