Kings Langley through to Division One Cup semi-final after beating London Lions
10:30am Friday 22nd March 2013 in Sport
Kings Langley have reached the semi-final of the Division One Cup after claiming a 3-0 victory at home to London Lions on Tuesday night.
Both sides struggled to maintain possession on a difficult surface.
The first chance went to the hosts and Callum Adebiyi almost found the net when his deep cross struck the angle.
Langley grew in confidence and Jimmy Armstrong and Sam Warrell had headers well saved by Dan Lee, who then tipped a shot from Jack Johnson away.
The two sides went in level at the interval but just two minutes after the restart Kings went ahead.
A Jack Pattison free-kick was flicked on by Armstrong and Adam Hallissey touched the ball home from four yards.
Langley took control of the game after going ahead and the central defensive pairing of Craig Preston and Liam James snuffed out the sporadic Lions attacks.
Lee continued to make important saves to give the visitors hope of finding an unlikely equaliser but Kings did add a second goal in the 75th minute when a mishit shot from substitute Tom Carter allowed Warrell to poke home.
The hosts did add a third before full time as Pattison pulled the ball back into the area and Carter cleanly netted Kings will face Hoddesdon or Cockfosters in the last four.
