Khalsa made heavy work on a heavy pitch of a heavy pressing and hard working Continental Star side and needed two slices of fortune to secure the victory.

Both goals by Matt Martin had a whiff of fortune about them, although the rangy wide midfielder asked all the right questions in order to earn the spoils.

His first came seconds into the second half when he deflected an effort into the net to give Khalsa a 2-1 lead, with the visitors having gone behind on 17 minutes only to pull level two minutes later from Brad Lawley.

And then in the final stages – with Khalsa holding a precarious 3-2 lead – his wicked corner did exactly what all corners should do and gave the keeper nightmares, ending up nestling in the back of the net.
