Willenhall Town shrugged aside a traumatic month by producing arguably their best win of the season to reach the Birmingham Senior Cup final for the first time in 20 years.
The Reds, who have lost a complete team since Rob Smith exited as manager, upset Nuneaton Borough 1-0 on their own Manor Park turf last night to hand new bosses Mel Eves and Dean Edwards their first victory in charge.
Nicky Campbell gave the Southern One West visitors the lead after just 12 minutes and Boro, lying third in Nationwide North, were second best in almost every department. Their woes were compounded when Ian Foster and Martin Reeves limped off with knee injuries.
The Reds will now meet either Stourbridge or Moor Green, who meet next Tuesday at Amblecote.
Justin Rowe was Sutton Coldfield Town's hero as they marched into the semi-finals of the Walsall Senior Cup with a 2-0 win over Tividale.
Tividale's continuing problems with their floodlights meant the game had to be switched to Sutton's Coles Lane but Rowe struck on 48 and 84 minutes. Both goals followed long punts forward and the striker slotted home past the advancing keeper.
Sutton now face neighbours Boldmere St Michaels in the last four at Coles Lane.
Halesowen Town suffered frustration in their bid to gatecrash the Southern Premier play-offs after a goalless draw at Rugby Town.
Title-chasing Chasetown needed an 85th minute goal to edge out Alvechurch in the Harvey World Travel Midland Alliance.
Church's reward for a positive display came when Lee Chilton lobbed home a Keith Rostill pass to cancel out a Duncan Horler shot just before half-time. But Karl Edwards snatched the points for the Scholars, pushing them within three points of leaders Malvern Town with three games in hand, when he headed home a Nicky Harrison cross.
Studley had two-goal Robbie Agar to thank for securing their 2-0 victory at home to Oldbury United, while Leamington were held 0-0 at Rocester.
