The Tigers should now progress into the second stage of the league cup after a dull affair at Valley Road. The Tigers dominated the possession without really making any clear cut chances. Kojoe Taylor pumped a free kick into the penalty area on 55 minutes and the ball fell to Simon Yeo who smashed home on the volley. A goalkeeping error on 70 minutes left Simon Yeo with a simple tap in before Flixton cut the advantage to one when they scored on 85 minutes. Hyde then had an injury scare when Yeo was stretchered off after a nasty looking tackle by the Flixton goalkeeper, when contact was made there was a cracking sound but it has since been confirmed that Simon has not broken his leg.
