Buckingham Town are through to the last 16 of the Berks & Bucks County Cup after a 3-2 victory over East Berks Premier Division side Langley.

In a scrappy affair played on a poor surface, the sides went into half-time on level terms with Akin Iluyemi replying to Papli’s early goal.

The Robins were much-improved in the second half and took the lead through Drew Mitten’s superb strike before manager Chris Robson added secured his side’s place in the next round with a third from the penalty spot.

Afterwards, Robson said: “It was a terrible game but the main thing in cup competition is that we won and progress into the next round.

“Although it was a below par performance from my players I have to give them credit for doing a professional job and winning the game.”

Buckingham turn their attention back to UCL Division One this weekend when they travel to league leaders Lutterworth Athletic.

Robson added: “We will have to improve massively when we return to league competition next week. We face a tough trip to Lutterworth and if we do not improve we will we will lose another league game.

“We will train well this week to prepare and I have every faith in my players to give a good performance against a good side”
