St Panteleimon progressed into the quarter-finals of the Jim Rogers Presidents League Cup after sealing a comfortable 5-0 victory against Hounslow Wanderers.

The Saints will now face an away trip to Harrow FC on February, 10, after stamping their mark in their last 16 match-up.

Within five minutes a slick move saw Anton Wilson break free on the right following some magical interplay by Javonne Molloy, Noyan Tajbakhsh and Ayub Albadri, with a low drive from Wilson finishing the move making it 1-0.

Houslow Wanderers showed great character having fallen behind and tried to create openings of their own.

This proved difficult as the Saints boast the strongest defence in all four divisions and at the heart of it both Michael Frangeskou and Demetris Anastasiou showed why.

The pace of both Nikos Salapatas and Ayub Albadri were causing problems for Hounslow all afternoon and on 15 minutes it was Ayub who finished superbly following a great through ball from the impressive Noyan Tajbakhsh.

The Saints continued to dominate play and the third goal was worth waiting for, a sublime overhead scissor kick and contender for goal of the season was scored by Anton Wilson to make it 3-0 at half-time.

The second half continued in the same pattern as the first with Hounslow continuing to play with spirit and their wingers looked dangerous but faced the outstanding Ibadat Mohammadi and Ryan Molloy.

The fourth came from a superb assist from goalkeeper Donald Manaj whose inch perfect pass, from within his penalty area, sent Salapatas free.

With players closing in on him he sent a delightful chip over the oncoming goalkeeper to make it 4-0.

Michael Frangeskou intercepted a pass in his own half and set off down the right wing on one of his blistering runs.

Having brushed aside the challenges of three players his cross found Noyan Tajbakhsh who fired an unstoppable shot pass the keeper to make it 5-0.
