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.
