SUPER-SUB Kyle Belmonte scored a late winner as his two goals helped Worcester City come from behind to beat Sherwood Colliery 2-1 and book their place in the second-round of FA Cup Qualifying. 

Belmonte, who confirmed his permanent move to City from Redditch on Friday, came on at half-time with City 1-0 down after Ewan Robinson's opener two minutes before the break.

And the midfielder was on the score sheet within three minutes of being introduced as he lashed home a strike into the top corner from the edge of the box. 

Belmonte then sealed City's place in the second-round of qualifying in the 88th minute, sliding the ball into the corner with a perfectly-weighted first-time shot from Izak Reid's drag-back.

It was a cagey first 45 minutes but City probably edged it, creating the better chances without really testing Sherwood keeper Dale Sheppard.

Striker Jamie Insall had a header deflected over for a corner, which Connor Gater nodded just wide but that was about as close as the visitors came. 

And they went behind just before the interval. City keeper Haydn Whitcombe fumbled a cross into the box and the hosts managed to work it back into the danger zone, where Robinson was on hand to slam it home from a couple of yards out.

It was a blow for Chris Cornes' men but whatever was said in the changing rooms, it worked because City pressed with intent at the start of the second period and it was that method that brought them the equaliser.

Replacements Belmonte and Kyonn Evans, with Gater helping, managed to win the ball in the Sherwood half and Evans laid the ball to Bemonte on the edge of the box, before he thumped the ball into the top corner.

The subs had made an impact and Evans was again involved soon after as he played Liam Lockett in down the left, but the winger's strike was blocked for a corner.

But Sherwood were creating some chances of their own and Whitcombe had to make a very tidy save from a close-range header to keep it at 1-1 before being quick off his line to deny another dangerous moment. 

At the other end, Evans went 1-on-1 with Sheppard but his last touch let him down as the chance came and went. 

But they would get their opportunity to win it in the 88th minute of the game. A break away saw Izak Reid in space, and the winger took it into the box before dragging it back to Belmonte, who tucked the ball into the corner with a first-time shot on the run.

City then held on for the win, much to the delight of the traveling supporters. The draw for the next round is on Monday at 1PM.
