The Report
Slough Town will have to go into a replay after a 2-2 draw at home against Bishops Stortford.

Slough twice went ahead in the game, the first goal was scored as early as the tenth minute. A tight shot from Ian Hodge was already going into the net but their number six (Barnett) went sliding into the ball, attempting to hit it out of play but actually ensured that it went into the goal.

Bishops Stortford equalised later on when the ball was fired past Alan Foster.

Then a contraversial goal was scored by Matt Miller. Alex Haddow went down in midfield and immediately the Bishops Stortford players assumed that the referee was going to stop play. He didn't. Slough won the ball back through Matt Miller who then slotted the ball past the oncoming Stortford keeper.

Slough had the better of the first half but they were poor for most of the second. Again Bishops Stortford equalised in similar fashion to which the first goal was scored, again it originated from poor defending. That equalising goal was a wake-up call for the Rebels who then stepped up a gear for the rest of the match.

Slough had a couple of good chances after that. The first was when Paul Barrowcliff ran past a number of defenders and hit the ball into the area but his shot/cross was blocked by the goalkeeper. The second was when Ryan Spencer headed wide when it would have been easier to finish the game off and score.

The replay will be played at Woodside Park on Tuesday 4th November with a 7:45 PM kick-off.
