Bryco League Cup Semi-Final 2nd leg

Tuesday 22nd March 2005
The Report
The Rebels are through to the Bryco Cup final following a 4-2 aggregate win over Essex side Heybridge Swifts.

A draw for Slough would have been enough to see them through, but it was the visitors who seemed more up for it and they took the lead on 20 minutes when Richard Gardner headed in a free-kick at the far post.

Slough could have equalised soon afterwards though, but Matt Seedel's shot following Glen Harris's through ball was saved by the goalkeeper.

The Rebels were awarded a lucky penalty on 35 minutes whne Paul Abbot handled the ball just inside the area. James Saulsbury scored his first goal in a Slough shirt as he tucked away the penalty.

This woke Slough up a little, because soon afterwards they came close to taking the lead when Josias Carbon fired just wide with a shot from the right wing.

2nd half

The 2nd half went about in the same way as the 1st, with Heybridge dominating possession for long periods but not threatening Slough's goal.

Just as it seemed as Slough were hanging on for a place in the final, Matt Murphy made the game more secure when he drilled a powerful header across the face of goal and into the far side of the net at the far post following Glen Harris's cross.
