Sporting Bengal United made it 10 games unbeaten as they sealed a narrow 1-0 win over St Margaretsbury.

Mario Embalo’s penalty just before the half-time break sent Sporting through to the quarter-final of the Errington Challenge Cup.

Embalo slotted a penalty into the bottom corner after a hand ball in the box to give his side a 1-0 lead going into the break and then his side held on to seal the win.

Manager Imrul Gazi tweeted after the match: “Illness and traffic problems meant I had two 16 year olds in the a very bare squad tonight, but it was great to see the lads grind out a 1-0 win.

“Really pleased for Raul and Adil who were brilliant, it’s a great experience for the youngsters.

“Into the next round.”

St Margaretsbury assistant Tony Faulkner also tweeted: “Lame performance and you can’t win games like that. Fair play to Sporting Bengal.

“They try to play the game the right way.”

They will now host Saffron Walden Town in the Peter Butcher Memorial Trophy at the Mile End Stadium on Saturday.
