    Cup holders Manchester Maccabi 1st edged past Premier Division new boys North London Raiders B 2-1 in a tie where all the goals came late in the second half.

    The visitors forged ahead through Jay McGavery after 65 minutes following an error from Raiders keeper David Simnock.

    They doubled the lead with a stunning goal from McGavery on the counter-attack soon after.

    Raiders top-scorer David Dinkin halved the deficit with a last minute consolation.

    Maccabi wonder kid Louie Basso was terrific in midfield but he was sent to hospital following a head injury which required stitches.

    Manchester joint-manager Stuart Delmonte told JC Sport: "We bossed it for the first 20 minutes without scoring. It was a good performance and I'm just pleased to go through on 3G.

    "This match was a great advert for Jewish football. Raiders are a very nice bunch of boys and we now look forward to having Michael Sacks and a couple of the boys back for the quarter-finals."

    Raiders boss Rob Richman told JC Sport: "I thought both teams contributed to what was a really decent game of football. Manchester dominated the possession but we probably had the better chances in the 90 minutes.

    "It was a very even game and with 15 minutes to go, and the game still goallessm I could see it going to extra time.

    "Unfortunately it wasn't to be today, but we gave absolutely everything against a very talented Manchester side.

    "Congratulations to Manchester who I believe have a huge chance of retaining their trophy."
