    Stuart Delmonte toasted the latest comeback win for AFC Flixton as they pulled off a shock in the Handicap Cup.

    AFC Flixton dumped out Premier Division side Sporting Manchester - and they did it the hard way.

    The hosts booked a quarter-final spot against PWC despite trailing 2-0 at half-time.

    But a reshuffle at the break saw Rafi Leeker's brace and Rob Jacobs' 87th minute strike complete the cup win.

    Flixton joint-manager Stuart Delmonte said: "We have to go behind before we wake up, it seems.

    "It is not a good habit to get into, but I could not fault my players for showing the desire to come back and win.

    "We were playing a team from a higher division, so it was always going to be an uphill task.

    "But we changed the formation at half-time and everyone responded."
