Webster seals Shield win for Albion; NON-LEAGUE.
AARON Webster headed a last-minute winner as Burton Albion beat Tamworth 2-1 in the Setanta Shield. The Lambs looked set for extra-time in front of the Setanta TV cameras when Webster finished the tie from Michael Simpson's free-kick. The result was tough on Tamworth who looked the better side during the early stages but fell behind when former Lamb John McGrath curled home a 29th-minute free-kick.
McGrath also headed against the crossbar before half-time, but Tamworth were level at the start of the second half when Chris Nurse converted from Gareth Sheldon's corner.
Kidderminster Harriers reached the last 16 after they too hit a last-gasp winner to dispose of Hinckley United 2-1.
Harriers boss Mark Yates rang the changes with top marksman James Constable, back from a three-match ban, bagging the opener after 24 minutes. Hinckley hit back 10 minutes later through Owen Story before Harriers were reduced to 10 men when skipper Stuart White-head was sent off. But substitute Iyesden Christie scored a 90th-minute winner after being put clear by Brian Smikle.
