Hallam overcame a spirited performance from their Denaby opponents to reach the next round of the Hallam and Sheffield Senior Cup.
The match started at a high tempo and it was the visitors who had the first noteworthy chance as they struck the Hallam crossbar.
Hallam though, got on the scoresheet first after 17 minutes as captain for the night Tom Roebuck met an inviting cross to nod the hosts in front.
And Liam Osbourne doubled The Countryman's lead on 34 minutes with a nice crisp drive that found its way into the bottom left corner.
The game then took a bizarre turn as Denaby were reduced to ten men, when Matty Ord appeared to be blocked when sent clear. First impressions were that the decision seemed a little harsh.
Denaby were gifted a lifeline right on the stroke of half-time as the returning Dave Darwent grasp a corner, however somehow managed to stumble backwards and fall into his goal though the goal was credited to set-piece taker Cory Goodwin.
That breathed new life into the men in red and they looked the more dangerous going into the second half.
Denaby had an array of long range efforts and the lions share of the play however Hallam still had the better opportunites as Richard Tootle's brilliant shot was palmed away well by the Denaby number one.
Liam Osbourne was the next to try his luck but saw his shot rebound off the upright.
Then Mark West went on a mesmerising run but could only fire a weak shot at the keeper as we continued to press for a third.
Denaby could have forced Extra time at the death though as Darwent made up for his earlier howler to deny the Denaby forward from close range.
