The Pitmen faced National League North strugglers Blyth Spartans at the PRG Stadium, Keys Park in the Emirates FA Cup Third Qualifying Round. In form, Hednesford Town were through to the third round on the back of wins against Lutterworth and Barwell.

Hednesford showed their power as they took a 2-1 lead in at the half time point, Spartans, backed by a noisy away following, came out for the second half looking to get straight back into the game duly equalising 2-2.

Another set-piece restored Hednesford’s lead; from wide on the left Sam Griffiths played an excellent ball through to Elliott whose shot was pushed behind by Mark Foden. The corner was cleared as far as Bailey who headed the ball back towards goal, with Kieran Morris rising highest to nod into the net for his second goal of the afternoon.

Two minutes later, a long ball over the top put Danny Glover through on goal, rounding the Blyth keeper to put the result beyond doubt, and into Monday's draw.
