Battling Sandbach reach semi-finals

WEST DIDSBURY AND CHORLTON 0
SANDBACH UNITED 2
(Playermatch.com Cup)
Title holders Sandbach travelled to the recreation ground to face West Didsbury and Chorlton in the quarter-final of the Playermatch.com Cup (writes Jack Beresford).
The hosts started the better of the two sides and it only took two minutes for them to have their first opportunity of the game as the tall Sam Heathcote met a corner from the right side, but his header went wide of the post.
Sandbach were really struggling to get into the game and they had keeper Sam Booth to thank for keeping the scores level, as after eight minutes Matthew Argent-Barnes won the ball on the edge of the box and drove towards the goal. But his shot was pushed around the post from the Crewe Alex loanee.
