Halifax 1-2 Notts

Mitchell's late winner sends us into quarters

12 February 2022

Kairo Mitchell struck late on to score a deserved goal and send us into the quarter-finals of the Buildbase FA Trophy.

The forward was a thorn in Halifax's side all afternoon and grabbed the headlines when Jayden Richardson's surging run presented Cal Roberts with the chance to cross for Mitchell to stab home with four minutes to go.

We'd taken an early lead through Ruben Rodrigues' emphatic finish, which was cancelled out by Billy Waters after the break.

The hosts ended the game with 10 men after Jay Benn was shown a second yellow at the death.

More to follow.
