Max Miller bagged a brace in the final 15 minutes for Haywards Heath as they sent Mile Oak Football Club crashing out of the Southern Combination League Division 1 Challenge Cup at The Haven Centre last night.

It was a double dose of disappointment for Oak after they saw their league promotion challenge end with defeat on Saturday.

Oak were well in the contest but Heath’s class eventually told with two late strikes.

Heath, who have already wrapped up the Division 1 title, will now look to go on and make it a league and cup double.

With the game looking to be heading into extra-time, Miller had other ideas and fired Heath ahead on 76 minutes.

Oak pushed forward for a late leveller but were caught on the counter and Miller bagged his second to send his side into the final.

MILE OAK: Stenning; Pollard, Dermott, Gillingham, Whiting; Hall, Arnold, Austin-Slade; Davies, Curd, Wedge-Bull. Subs: Lansdale (Davies), Arnold (Stenning), Garrod (Gillingham), Pulling, Burnett.
