The Report

Despite dominating the opening 45 minutes, Slough could count themselves extremely lucky to escape with a replay as a 95th Abingdon goal was cancelled out for offside.

James Pritchard has earlier capitalised on Lee Farrow's fumble from Matthew Platt's shot by seeing the ball over the line after half an hours play.

The Rebels, bolstered by the signing of Luke Evans (pictured right) and the return of Byron Bubb could easily have been out of sight by the break had Matthew Platt taken some of his many chances during the first half, with the home side's only real first-half chance being a Billy Beechers' shot that thundered against the crossbar.

Barely five minutes into the second half however the home side were back on level terms when Luke Holden converted Ryan Curtin's cross.

Slough were now restricted by attacking on the counter-attack for much of the remainder of the game, including the final 15 minutes with only 10 men after James Pritchard was stretchered off, obviously in a great deal of pain.

Shortly beforehand, Pritchard had almost retaken the lead for Slough with a free-kick that flashed narrowly wide of the upright, but deep into injury time it was the home side that almost snatched the lead, with ex-Rebel Anaclaet Odhiambo making sure ex-Rebel Jamie Brook's (pictured left) effort saw the back of the net. Fortunately for the Rebels, he was offside.
