Sporting Bengal saw their FA Vase dreams shattered by Sleaford in extra time at Mile End Stadium.

Anwar Uddin’s men went into the second round tie without a win in their last four matches since beating Southall 6-2 in the previous round.

And they were left chasing the game after Ryan Oliver put United Counties League Sleaford in front, but Tunde Adewunmi hit back from a corner early in the second half to level for the home side and force the extra period.

Bradley Hockin restored Sleaford’s lead, though, after a goalmouth scramble and Oliver made sure of their progress with a clinching third goal.

Uddin tweeted: “There is a fine line between winning & losing, gutted @SportingBengal are now out of the FA Vase after an extra time defeat #MakesUsStronger.”

Sporting Bengal return to Essex Senior League action with a home match against in-form Wadham Lodge on Wednesday.
