Poole Town 2 Horsham 1
Dolphins cause a splash to dampen Hornets as we bow out from the FA Cup
Horsham and Poole must do it all again after an absorbing Emirates FA Cup 3rd qualifying round tie ended even at a soggy and windswept Culver Road this afternoon. Things looked bad for the Hornets when Richard Gillespie put their higher-ranking opponents ahead after barely ninety seconds, when he headed past Josh Pelling at his near post, but Joe Shelley’s header restored parity just a minute before the break. Both sides had opportunities to win it after the break but there was no further score and we’ll do it all again – hopefully in drier conditions – at The Dolphins’ Black Gold Stadium in Tatnam on Tuesday night.
