Jason Scotland had the first real chance to open the scoring but his shot went wide of Kuipers post. Veteran striker Nicky Forster had the chance to put the gulls into a 1-0 lead after winger Dean Cox put a cross into the danger area but the former Hull City man could not direct it goal wards

Owain Tudur Jones had a chance break the deadlock after latching onto a Paul Anderson corner but the Welshman could only watch as defender Andrew Whing blocked his shot.

It would be subsitute Fabien Brandy who would open the scoring after Shaun McDonald beat his marker to find Brandy in the area who made no mistake to bury the ball past Kuipers.
