Errington League Challenge Cup quarter-final: Hackney Wick 1 Sporting Bengal United 2

A late winner from skipper Freddy Tandoh saw Sporting Bengal United win 2-1 at Hackney Wick in the quarter-finals of the Errington League Challenge Cup.

Both teams had a nervous wait for the match, with the pitch at the Old Spotted Dog passing an inspection in the hours before kick-off.

The first half proved to be a nervy affair, with the sides ending it level at 1-1, with Siddik scoring in the 30th minute for Bengal.

The second half was just as close and as the minutes ticked by, the game appeared to be heading for penalties.
