Swindon Supermarine boss Lee Spalding was delighted to progress in the FA Trophy but admitted his side must not squander the lead as they did against Dorchester Town on Saturday.
Goals from Pierce Mitchell and Jamie Edge gave Marine a commanding 2-0 lead against Dorchester but a crazy 15-minute spell saw the visitors haul themselves level on 90 minutes.
Fortunately for Supermarine, they snatched victory at the death when Conor McDonagh was fouled in the box and Michael Hopkins fired home the winner on 91 minutes.
Spalding admitted it was a great game for the neutral, saying: “It was very entertaining wasn’t it?
For 75 minutes we were excellent. It’s probably the best football I have seen us play this season.
“2-0 is always one of those scores that if the opposition scores it makes you little bit creaky and that happened to us today.
“Soon as they scored the goal we started to back off as a team.
“Credit to them to get back in the game. To be honest I was absolutely spitting feathers at that point.
“I thought we were excellent today for 75 minutes. We just have make sure we learn from this and don’t have spells in games where we give the opposition chances like that.
“Delighted to be in the next round. End of the day it’s about the results in the cup.”
While a return to Southern League action is currently on hold, Supermarine will likely be playing the next round of the Trophy on December 19th.
