GRANTHAM Town eased through to the second qualifying round of the FA Cup after they defeated Loughborough Dynamo 3-1 in the replay at The Meres on Tuesday night.
Following a dour, goalless first half, the game livened up remarkably after the break, with goals from Karl Demidh, Lee Potts and Martin Ball taking the Gingerbreads through to a match at Cambridge City in the next round.
Town went in front through Demidh six minutes after half time. Loughborough levelled five minutes later from the spot, but Potts restored Grantham’s lead after a further four minutes.
Loughborough were killed off when Ball knocked in Town’s third in a 72nd minute goalmouth scramble, and showed little opposition thereafter.
