The harsh sending off of Rocester’s Jack Langston around the mid-point of the second half proved crucial in this League Cup Quarter Final. At the time, the Romans led through Darren Alexander’s well-struck close-range just before the interval but the visitors took full advantage of their extra man to earn a two-legged semi-final against Tipton Town with goals from Dominik Mondesir and Sam Cook.
