Bristol Manor Farm 0, Slough Town 4
Slough Town are through to the final qualifying round of the FA Cup after last night’s 4-0 replay win at Bristol Manor Farm.
Joint manager Jon Underwood admitted afterwards the Rebels had once again done it the hard way after goals from George Wells, Warren Harris, Matty Stevens and Louie Soares booked their place in the next round.
The Rebels travelled down the M4 seeking to put right a few wrongs following Saturday’s 2-2 draw at Arbour Park.
The visitors quickly established a firm grip on the tie, scoring twice in the first half and twice after the interval.
Stevens reflected on Twitter: “Very professional performance tonight. We did exactly what we had to do. Another goal for me as well so going down the M4 happy. Big thank you to the travelling support as well tonight.”
Underwood added: “We’ve done it the hard way again but we’re through and that’s all that matters. Very professional job tonight by all. Thanks to the travelling support.”
Their prize for beating Bristol Manor in last night’s replay is a trip to National League South rivals Eastbourne Borough on Saturday, October 20. There is £25,000 at stake for the winner as well as a place in the first round proper.
The Rebels are looking to emulate last season’s magnificent run to the second round of the competition when they bowed out to League 1 Rochdale in front of the BT Sport cameras.
