The Report

An excellent attacking display and a comfortable 5-2 win ensured that the Rebels will travel to Farnborough in the 1st Qualifying Round of the FA Cup.

Direct from kick-off, Byron Bubb almost scored one of the fastest goal in FA Cup history by hitting a curling shot from 30 yards, forcing Lee Farrow into a save literally only seconds into the game.

After a very strong opening for Slough, Eamonn McConigley headed in Adam Durrant's cross to put the Rebels into the lead. The lead lasted less than 10 minutes however, when ex-Rebel Jamie Brooks fired the visitors level; although Jamie Jackson (pictured below left) could have done better with the shot.

Another 10 minutes during which no clear-cut chance materialised, until Matthew Platt was fouled 20 yards form goal. Byron Bubb stepped up and hit a brilliant free-kick inside the far left post for 2-1.

At times Slough's attacking was a joy to watch, and further chances ensued with Matthew Platt missing the target and Byron Bubb hitting the post before Adam Durrant blasted a shot just inside the right-hand post from 20 yards out to double the Rebels lead after 35 minutes.

The second half saw the visitors begin to get back into the game, but not before Byron Bubb saw two efforts saved and Danny Jordan (pictured right) came close with a header. However, it took 20 minutes for Abingdon to reduce the deficit courtesy of a Ryan Curtin penalty after the referee spotted shirt-pulling inside the area.

By this time, Slough were truly on the back foot and an Abingdon comeback seemed to be on the cards as the visitors put Jamie Jackson under more pressure. However, with Slough's next attack, Byron Bubb played in Matthew Platt who blasted a powerful shot in off the post to double Slough's lead to 4-2 with a little under 10 minutes left.

This goal completely knocked the stuffing out of the visitors who, for the first time began to look as if they believed the game was beyond them. An excellent performance was capped off in injury time as Matthew Platt slotted the ball past Lee Farrow into the far left corner to round of a more-than-satisfactory night for the Rebels.
