The Report
The Rebels reached the 1st round of the FA Cup for the second time in three years when they beat Salisbury City at Stag Meadow for the second time this season. Alex Haddow's 2nd minute free-kick, Ian Hodges 16th minute header and Darron Wilkinson's 88th minute shot were enough to set up a 1st round tie with Paul Merson's Walsall.

Alex Haddow gave Slough their dream start with just 2 minutes on the clock when his free-kick curled around the wall and into the net. Salisbury equalised four minutes later when bad defending allowed Mathews to run behind the defence and score from close range.

Ten minutes after that Ian Hodges headed in a Glen Harris (pictured right) corner. That is how it stayed until half-time

Half-Time Score: 2-1 to the Rebels

Salisbury came out for the second-half with all guns blazing and, with some better shooting, could have put the game out of sight before they levelled the scores in the 62nd minute.

An alleged handball in the area by a Slough defender was punished with a penalty and Wallace sent Jake Whincup the wrong way from the spot.

It took Slough some time to find their feet in this half and they started to put some pressure on the Salisbury defence. That pressure was rewarded in the 88th minute when Josias Carbon received the ball inside the box, did well in holding the ball and tapping it backwards for Darron Wilkinson (pictured left) to fire Slough into the 1st round.
