Steels, who play two tiers higher than Main in the Northern Premier League, were 2-0 up at Oxford Street midway through the second half.

But Tyla Bell halved the deficit after 67 minutes before Gibbons stole the show.

He equalised with a smart finish before putting Rossington ahead from the penalty spot following a foul on Bell.

The visitors threw bodies forward in search of a late leveller only for the pacy Gibbons to score on the break and seal a memorable win for Ben Hunter’s side.

Main will now travel to NCEL Division One leaders Hallam in the quarter-finals.

Gibbons also scored on his debut at the weekend to help high-flying Rossington to an impressive 3-0 win over Harrogate Railway Athletic and leave them within a point of Hallam.
