Dulwich Hamet will play Braintree Town in the last sixteen of the FA Buildbase Trophy after Sunday’s 4-1 win over Whitehawk.

Hamlet produced a sensational last eighteen minutes after falling a goal behind just after half-time when Whitehawk’s Michael West ran through to beat goalkeeper Preston Edwards.

The home side should have gone two goals up in the 55th minute, but Edwards made a stunning double save to keep Hamlet’s cup hopes alive.

Whitehawk lost their goalkeeper Thomas Stewart in the 65th minute, with Ross Flitney coming on. Flitney saved from Nyren Clunis before the visitors finally made the breakthrough in the 72nd minute when Ibrahim Kargbo pounced on a loose ball to cross for Gavin Tomlin to head home.

Whitehawk were rocked, and fell behind three minutes later and it was Tomlin again applying the finish, this time from an accurate Clunis cross.

Eight minutes from time Hamlet finished the tie as a contest, Ashley Carew firing home another cross from Clunis. And Carew got his second late on when he finished the rebound to the net after Flitney had saved his penalty.

There will be some Millwall interest in Hamlet’s tie with Braintree as Lions midfielders Kris Twardek and Kyron Farrell are on loan at The Iron.

The fixture will kick off at the IronmongeryDirect Stadium at 3pm on Saturday, February 4.
