The Report
Slough Town pulled off one of the shocks of the FA Cup 1st round by beating League One side Walsall in front of BBC cameras at Stag Meadow.

Walsall started by putting the Rebels defence under a lot of pressure. New 'keeper Shaun Allaway made some good saves early on, including one from former Arsenal and England star Paul Merson, to keep the scores level.

Slough began to come back into the game and took the lead on 24 minutes through Ian Hodges. Ryan Spencer crossed the ball and Ian Hodges tapped it round the 'keeper to put the Rebels one up.

This lead lasted only 8 minutes. Allaway pulled off another good save from a Walsall forward, but unfortunately only parried it away, right at Darren Wrack who headed the Saddlers level with just over half an hour gone.

H/T Score: Slough Town 1-1 Walsall

Walsall set about to try and avoid an upset, but without success. The Rebels defence held firm and denied Walsall any great goalscoring opportunities.

With about quarter of an hour to go, Walsall were still trying to find an equaliser when Alex Haddow broke free down the left. His cross found Glen Harris who saw his first shot blocked by the 'keeper but his second fly into the net.

The Rebels collect 16,000 in prize money + 13,000 in TV money. Highlights of today's match will be shown on BBCs Match of the Day (MOTD) starting at 11:25pm tonight (13/11/2004) on BBC One.
