Slough Town’s FA Trophy run ended with a 3-2 Third Qualifying Round replay defeat to Concord Rangers on Tuesday night.

The Rebels had been held to a 0-0 draw on Saturday but the visitors took the lead nine minutes in to the replay.

Warren Harris levelled things up five minutes before the break, heading home from Max Worsfield and gave the Rebels the lead on 54 minutes.

It should have all been over with Slough looking forward to an away day at Maidstone or Dartford in the First Round when Matt Lench stepped up to take a 67th minute penalty.

Unfortunately for Rebels bosses Neil Baker and Jon Underwood, Lench’s strike went over the bar and Danny Green made no mistake with a spot kick for the visitors on 73 minutes, awarded for handball.

Harris then had multiple chances to complete his hat trick but Concord delivered the killer blow in injury time when Kreshnic Krasniqi struck.

Paul Rooney pulled one back for Dover on 66 minutes but the Magpies held on despite Ellul receiving a second yellow card in injury time having only just returned from suspension.
