    Goalkeeper Jake Doffman was the hero as Premier Division new boys Brixton held their nerve to beat first division Neasden on penalties at Clowes.

    Ryan Glynne put Neasden ahead 32 minutes into the first half of normal time, but Brixton levelled things up 12 minutes into the second half when Rob Blackman, who returned to midfield following his heroics against Lions up front, sent a 40-yard ball which split the Neasden defence for Alon Hershkorn to fire past their goalkeeper to equalise.

    In the shootout, Dan Sherman, James Kaye, Rob Blackman and Ed Weisz converted for Brixton, with Doffman saving two NWN penalties.

    Relieved Brixton boss John Nitka told JC Sport: "It was an uphill struggle for us after NWN went ahead. I had six regulars out and had problems raising 11 players.

    "Jake Doffman pulled off a string of fine saves to deny a Neasden win, but it ended in a stalemate at the end of extra time. We won the penalty shoot out 4-2 so on to the next round. Hopefully I will be back to full strength next week."

    NWN boss Dan Hodes told JC Sport: "We had enough chances to win and on balance were in the ascendency for large parts of the game, but didn't do enough to convert that to goals."
