A cruel own goal in extra-time sealed Aylesbury FC’s fate as Slough Town marched on with a 1-0 win in the Red Insure Cup.

The Moles had a new look team on show in the second round due to a number of recent departures. However, it did not stop them from dominating proceedings at Haywood Way.

Recent signing and former QPR youth striker Leon Osei had a number of chances throughout and was desperately unfortunate to not turn one in.

There was also an eye catching debut for the new loan signing from Stoke City, Matarr Touray.

However, FC were eventually made to pay for their profligacy as the game ticked into extra-time.

With 97 minutes on the clock it was the unlucky FC defender Ronayne Marsh-Brown who turned the ball into his own net.

Craig Faulconbridge’s side attempted to rally but it was too little too late.

The Moles now travel to Thatcham Town on Saturday in their Evo-Stik League Southern - Division One Central league match (kick-off 3pm).
