The Peacocks extended their unbeaten run in all competitions to 11 games when they beat Paulton Rovers 4-1 in an entertaining Southern League Challenge Cup Quarter Final at the Cygnet Health Care Stadium this evening.

With the side reshuffled due to players missing for a variety of reasons, Town didn’t get off to the best of starts when they fell behind after four minutes when Liban Ibrahim’s blocked shot fell to David O’Hare who netted past Will Buse. Dan Sullivan then struck the woodwork for the Peacocks before he equalised after 27 minutes, tucking the ball into the corner from the centre of the box. Ollie Chamberlain put Town in front five minutes before the break when he tapped in from close range following a Sullivan cross before the hosts quickly added a third goal after 48 minutes, Ross Staley firing home at the far post after Sullivan’s shot had deflected to him. The Peacock’s progress was confirmed after 63 minutes when Nick Grimes’ shot reached substitute Acey Mead who went down under a challenge but recovered well to slot past Aaron Sainsbury. Mead’s header also hit the post while Buse made several smart saves as the Peacocks reached the Semi-Final of the competition for the first time in their history.
