Rank Outsiders 0

The Cinderford team Rank Outsiders hardly had a shot on goal but they frustrated Poulton on numerous occasions, before John Dawson eventually headed a superb goal from a Steve Andrews cross in the 60th minute.

Andrews scored from the penalty spot five minutes later to put the scoreline more into perspective, and ensure a quarter-final place. Rank, from the Glos Northern Senior League, played their part in a good game and seemed intent on enjoying their day out
