Slough leave it late

| B&B Senior Cup
Slough Town
Feely (106)
1 - 0
Didcot Town
Alan Gane
IT was difficult at Wexham Park last night to discover whether Slough were using the match as a training session or trying to suggest to spies from Hayes that they really are a poor side.

A year ago, Didcot came to Slough and were beaten 5-0. This time it took Peter Feely's goal in the 106th minute to see them through to the next round of the Berks and Bucks Cup, where they will play Wycombe at home.

On Saturday, with Russell, Feely and Friend as front runners, Slough created plenty of goal chances, but against Didcot, Friend and Feely were played in midfield and the Slough frontrunners looked most unimpressive.

True, Mickey Kiely and Paul Lee are both far from match fit, but the new formation were utterly bewildered by Didcot's blanket defence. They completely failed to provide anything like the standard of intelligent football expected of an Isthmian League club.

Hordienko had a marvellous match in goal for the visitors and showed great agility when he saved from Russell following Friend's cross in the 12th minute and then from Paul Lee.

Didcot almost managed to pierce Slough’s defence lust after the interval when Dale Scott saved well from Hardy, but most of the danger came at the other end where Russell and Lee both wasted excellent chances.

The first half of extra time provided little but within a minute of the change of ends, Slough scored the winner. Alan Gane, running clear to the right of Didcot's defence, found Peter Feely who headed firmly into the net to score his seventh goal of the season.

Slough should have gone further ahead when Joe Maloney watched transfixed when the ball bounced in front of him, and then Hordienko saved brilliantly from Feely.
