Slough Town will host EFL League 2 Grimsby Town after stunning National League Ebbsfleet United in an FA Cup replay at Arbour Park.

Captain Josh Jackman and midfielder Matty Lench – always the man for a big occasion – got the goals for the Vanarama National League South side to leave supporters in raptures.

The Rebels have been here before in recent years with matches against Gillingham and Rochdale in consecutive seasons, but this is a first for manager Scott Davies leading the side on a night nobody is going to forget in a hurry.
