Bucks were winning 2-1 there deep into stoppage time on 9th September when heavy rain saw the referee controversially abandon proceedings.

But on Saturday two second-half goals from Diego De Girolamo, the second a penalty, sandwiching a successful Sam Minihan volley, saw them home and Craig Elliott said: "It was hard enough to go there and beat them once but to do it twice was exceptional. I'm really proud of the players to show the courage to do what we've done today.

“We felt harshly treated to have to come back. But our game plan worked a treat with some big performances as we had a lot of players missing.”

United could be homeless soon with the owner refusing to further fund them and Elliott said: “You always have to weather an early storm coming here, it's a big club. And we knew there was a lot of emotion around the game with their situation.

“I have every sympathy for them on behalf of myself, the players and the club ad I hope things improve for them off the pitch.

“But we had a job to do to come here and get a bit of justice as I thought it was a scandal we had to come back. I feel sorry for the supporters, who have had to pay a lot of money again. But they came in their numbers and I am glad they went home happy.”

On Saturday Bucks head for King's Lynn Town.
