Two extra-time goals from Josh Brigham sent Frome Town into the quarter-finals of the Red Insure Cup at the expense of local rivals Paulton Rovers last night.

The Robins twice had to come from behind, with Martin Johnson's 30-yard strike levelling the scores in injury time at the end of 90 minutes before Brigham bagged a brace on his first Frome appearance of the season following a hernia operation.

James Billing put the visitors ahead in the 35th minute and Frome rarely threatened an equaliser until Johnson's late cracker took the match to extra time.

Rovers seemed to have taken control again when Marcus Mapstone scored 11 minutes in, only for Brigham to equalise two minutes later.

With seven minutes remaining, Claudio Herbert won a penalty and Brigham stepped up to convert the spot-kick.

Paulton threatened to force an equaliser but Tom Evans cleared off the line to seal Frome's progress.
