The Report
Seven Bookings and a Sending Off.

And that was just Oxford City. Slough picked up two yellows as well. All that was missing was Hugh Grant . It wasn't a dirty game, just a lot of niggling fouls from Oxford as they tried unsuccessfully to contain Slough.

Slough lined up without Brooks (pictured left), but with Woodruffe, hopefully indicating that the later will be staying with us. Slough started brightly, and after 7 minutes Harris received the ball just outside the box and had room to set it up to shoot into the net. Oxford were not to be overawed, and hit straight back through their no 10, Spence who took advantage of a ball that bounced steeply over Ballard.

Slough had the Lions share of the chances from there on, with Hodges (pictured right) causing his usual trouble up front. Oxford continued dangerous on the break, and Slough did make mistakes at the back.

With the score level at half time, would a cup upset be on the cards? Not this time, as Slough continued where they left off, pressurising Oxford. The pressure paid off after 58 minutes when good work by Hodges on the edge of the box set up Carbon to score. Oxford nearly repeated their quick strike back by hitting the crossbar 2 minutes later.

The game continued as you might expect if you've seen Slough recently--Slough pressure, but looking iffy on the break. Slough started to make good use of both wings, something not seen since last season, but still preferred to walk the ball into the net rather than shoot. Alexis (pictured left) came on for Slough, and continued with his super sub role by scoring soon after, a close range tap in after Carbon got behind the Oxford defence.

It was one way traffic now as Slough grew in confidence and Oxford tired, and the scoring finished with Carbon (pictured right) producing a cameo of a goal, picking up a throw in not far from the half way line and taking it 25 yards past 4 players to slot home.

4-1. 2,250 prize money in the bank and the chance to win more in the next round. Maidenhead at home please, I fancy another clear win.
