went into Stag Meadow expecting Slough to lose badly, but it was
quite the opposite in reality! Slough were the better side
throughout, but at times Slough looked as if that there were going
to concede that equaliser that was inevitable.
Spencer (left) put us ahead on 21 minutes when great work from
Slough resulted in the ball being played across the goalmouth for
Ryan to tap in from close range.
have taken more of their chances, they would have put the game way
beyond Welling if they had done. There was one point where Tony Boot
found himself with the ball in space inside the area, all he had to
do was chip the ball over the keeper which he did do, but it went
over the bar.
Not much happened in the second half, Slough
could have extended their lead on numerous occasions but failed to
take their chances.
Three minutes from the end,
Welling scored that equalising goal we all knew was coming. It
started off with a blatant shove on Anthony Howard to send him off
the ball, it appeared that the only three people in the entire
ground who didn't see this was the linesmen and the referee. Play
continued. Their forward ran past two players and hit the ball past
the helpless Alan Foster.
Hodges (right) was totally naccered by the end and some players had
given up by the time Welling scored.
now face a tricky replay at Park View Road, Welling on Tuesday and
following today's draw, the winners will play either Hitchin Town or
Folkestone Invicta away in the 3rd Qualifying Round.
