South Shields v FC United of Manchester LIVE: Action, reaction and analysis
FT - And South Shields have done it! 5-3
Two minutes to go... 5-3
5-2 and that's that...
OFF THE BAR!
FC United are really turning up the pressure with Sinclair-Smith seeing a first-time effort tipped on to the bar by Boney. CLOSE! It remains 4-2
Mark Carruthers' view
"South Shields need to carefully manage next 10 minutes as Owalabi's second has given FC United some fresh hope. Jon Shaw going off has put some doubt in the mind at the back. Briggs, Baxter and Turnbull need to take over as experienced figures in the Mariners side. Gilchrist going off also means they've lost a little bit of focus at the top end of the pitch."
