Man Of Match: Sean Fraser

Maidenhead United brushed Slough aside at York Road as the Rebels crashed out of the Berks & Bucks Senior Cup at the first hurdle.

Steve Bateman made a few changes for the trip to the home of the Blue Square South side, handing starts to Steve Perkins, Steve Sinclair, Ben Abbey, Sean Sonner and Kwasi Marfo.

The Magpies really put Slough to the sword in the first half, going two goals ahead inside the opening 11 minutes.

Maidenhead started well, Harry Pritchard hitting the bar from distance with James Warrington well beaten, and then Paul Semakula had a shot tipped round the post by the Slough stopper. But with nine minutes played, Semakula reacted quickest after Warrington had parried an Alex Wall shot up and onto the crossbar, and scored from six yards.

Just two minutes later, Warrington parried a strike from Lee Barney, and Alex Wall followed up to double the advantage.

Only a superb save from Warrington kept it at two, but shortly before the interval, the hosts put the game out of reach as Wall thundered a shot into the top corner from 25 yards to make it 3-0.

Maidenhead took off the excellent Alex Wall at the interval, having been instrumental in putting the Magpies into their winning position, and Omar Vassell replaced Ben Abbey for Slough at half time as Bateman looked to freshen things up and give the young forward some game time. But things went from bad to worse for the Rebels ten minutes into the second half as Barney made it 4-0 from close range.

With around twenty minutes remaining, Sean Fraser won a penalty kick, which substitute Adam Logie blasted down the middle of the goal to give his side a consolation.

Slough's Alex Brown almost caught out home goalkeeper Joronen from 50 yards, but the goalkeeper recovered to claim the ball and that was the closest the Rebels came to another goal.

Maidenhead applied pressure late on in search of another goal, but had already done enough to seal their progress, leaving Slough to focus on an important league game at Godalming on Saturday.

Maidenhead United: Joronen, Solomon, Duncan, Brown, Nisbet, Henry, Semakula, Crook, Barney, Wall, Pritchard.
