“We are obviously delighted with an away victory in the cup,” he said.

“It is important to keep the momentum going. We obviously came here today and showed respect to the competition and that is important.

“In the second half they got a lift when they got a goal and you saw that on the pitch. They started to run forward more, they had a bit more energy. But we were able to get that killer second goal.”

Jordan Slew opened the scoring with a great solo breakaway effort.

“Slew has been excellent for us and he took the right back on very well and it was a great shot across the goal,” said Adams.

“He can give us that outlet with pace and he can score goals.”

On the winner 10 minutes from time, he added: “I said on the touchline we needed one of the midfield players to just get forward and have a shot at goal and David Fox was able to do that.

“It was a good strike low into the bottom corner.”
