The Rebels maintained their excellent record in cup competitions
this season with a victory over league rivals Cheshunt.
Denton decided to rest several key players ahead of our FA Trophy
tie against Hendon at the weekend, with Veli Hakki, Nick Gyoury and
Danny Steer all returning to the starting line-up in place of Steve
Daly, Glen Harris and Josias Carbon.
Slough should have wrapped up the game long before they
eventually did in the 90th minute. Matt Murphy hit the post no fewer
than three times during the course of the match, with Ian Hodges
missing an open goal when he headed the ball against the crossbar
with an open goal to aim for shortly before half-time.
The Rebels booked their place in the fourth round when an Ian
Hodges shot was fumbled by their 'keeper, for Matt Murphy to fire
home from close range, sparking 'mass celebrations' from the Slough
fans behind the goal.
