Man Of Match: Sean Sonner

Slough Town are out of the FA Trophy after a heavy defeat in their First Qualifying Round replay at Hardenhuish Park.

Despite falling behind after just three minutes, Slough fought back and levelled through Sean Sonner, but fell behind again just before half time despite having the better of the half.

However, the second half was a different story as the Rebels failed to get going, and the Bluebirds sealed a home tie against Lowestoft with further goals from Luke Gullick and Ashley Edenborough.

After Saturday’s 1-1 draw in which the Bluebirds had to come from behind, Chippenham took the lead after just three minutes of the replay when Scott Lye crossed the ball to Luke Gullick in the area. He leapt high and nodded the ball down to Sam Allison, who volleyed the ball into the bottom corner to hand his side the advantage.

Slough showed good spirit to get back into the game and hit back just ten minutes later, as Steve Sinclair played Sean Sonner through on goal, and the former Boreham Wood man beat the offside trap and slotted home to level the scores.

Danny Burnell toe-poked an effort just past post midway through the half, but Chippenham regained the lead just before half-time – a crucial goal which proved hugely important.

Allison collected the ball and beat Danny Murphy on the right, before drilling in a cross-shot which was flicked into the net by midfielder Iain Harvey.

After a long delay to the start of the second half, due to a medical emergency in the stands behind the dugouts, Chippenham took a stranglehold on the game as the Rebels struggled to pass the ball around.

James Martin was denied by Perks as he broke into the penalty area, but on 66 minutes Martin was involved in the Bluebirds’ third goal as he found Gullick with a cross-field ball, and the midfielder capped a good display by firing a low shot past Perks to make the game safe.

With eight minutes remaining and Slough bereft of any attacking threat, Adie Mings’ men bagged a fourth goal as captain Ashley Williams played in substitute Ashley Edenborough, who rounded Perks and slotted home from a tight angle to complete Slough’s misery.

Chippenham Town: Snoddy, Martin, Tindle, Williams, Casey, Kite, Lye, Gullick, Powell, Allison, Harvey. Subs: Rudge, Edenborough, Nash, Halliday.
