For not the first time in his career, Alex Tokarczyk was the penalty hero as Aylesbury dumped Premier Division Redditch United out of the Red Insure Cup.

With a gritty, determined defensive display, a patched up Ducks side stopped the rot of four straight defeats in the process, as they held their high flying hosts to a 1-1 draw.

Despite Redditch's dominance, Aylesbury held out until the 43rd minute when Luke Shearer coolly slotted home.

Many would have expected the floodgates to open, but substitute Jake Bewley hit a wonderstrike to draw the teams level just past the hour mark.

United continued to defend heroically, whilst Redditch wasted a host of chances, even after Aylesbury were reduced to ten men for a second yellow card shown to John Mulholland.

After the game went straight to penalties, Tokarczyk saved two and then stepped up to score the winner and give his side a 4-3 win.
