United replied with a brace from Nick Allanach, one of which was a penalty.

In-form Coachman needed two goals in extra time to see off Full Measure.

After an early let off, when Measure should have opened the scoring in the opening couple of minutes, Coachman went ahead midway through the first half from a seemingly nothing situation.

Josh Bowmaker delivered an inch perfect ball to the back post to find the Billy Simpson who rifled the ball home with a sweet volley.

The lead didn’t last for long though and Full Measure were back on level terms two minutes later, a great through ball by Nicholson found Hill, whosmashed an equaliser from 20 yards into the bottom corner.

On 65 minutes Measure took the lead, great feet by Nicholson finding the ball out to Foster, who found Eli Preston who bent a superb 25 yard shot into the far top corner from the edge of the box.

With the game looking like Coachman’s first defeat in all competitions since November, a moment of magic from Jason Coultas in the 89th minute saw him hold off 2 players and beautifully curl a right-foot shot past the keeper.

In extra time, Coachman finally started get the upper hand. I’anson put them ahead in the 93rd minute and two minutes from time, he made the game safe with an exquisite right foot shot into the bottom right hand corner from outside the penalty area.
