Shoot-out heroics from Fleetwood keeper Matty Urwin against Wigan Athletic sealed Town’s passage to the semi-finals of the Lancashire Senior Cup

Urwin made two saves in a penalty shoot-out which Fleetwood won 4-3 following a 1-1 draw at Poolfoot Farm.

Spencer Myers fired the winning spot-kick for the League One club’s development squad.

Town coach Paul Murray fielded a strong side, which included like experienced midfielder Eggert Jonsson, ex-Barcelona youngster Elohor Godswill and strikers Aaron Amadi-Holloway and Alex Jakubiak.

Amadi-Holloway missed out on a place in Town’s match day squad for last Saturday’s 2-2 draw at Wimbledon but he made his mark yesterday, opening the scoring as he latched on to Oliver Roberts’ pass. Wigan’s Jordan Flores equalised to take the tie to spot-kicks.
