A bit tentative for 10-15 minutes then grew into the game. I read Alex's notes in the program about not taking chances and I think that was true again in the first half but despite that seemed to be cruising at half time. Second half seemed disjointed for some reason and things just didn't seem to come off. Was at the other end of ground but the penalty seemed soft, looked accidental after a slip but I guess I'd have appealed as loudly as Brentwood if position reversed. Very end to end thereafter with both sides failing to seal the win in 90 minutes.

But then the penalty shootout - Well what can I say, I think Gareth needs to come down to The Stadium to see how it should be done. Jordan, George, George, Ronnie - all unstoppable and whilst Callum didn't manage to save any I think he did enough to force the 2 misses.

So, into the semi-final as the lowest level team so time to think like Newport County for just two more games in this competition.

Did make it hard for ourselves should have been out of sight by half time but that's football Brentwood grew into the game and could see an equalizer coming but obviously weve been practicing penalties well done to those who kept there nerve
