Windsor progressed to the next round of the FA Vase with a comfortably frustrating victory away at CCL Division One side Ash United.

Missing Omar Riaz (work commitments), Levi Thackeray (suspended), Ian Gosling (injured) and Lewis Leonetti (joined Binfield); Windsor fielded a strong side with Jake Jenkins partnering Club Captain Adam Kirby in the Centre of defence.

Windsor started brightly with the lively Kyle Lucas causing problems for the home side in an unfamiliar floating role. Amin Khomsi saw plenty of the ball and with Jason Sheehan providing the passes it took less than ten minutes for Wayne Harvey to be released, firing against the sprawling defender. From the resulting corner Jake Jenkins couldn???t get any power on an attempted volley.

Eddie Lazarczuk???s long throw-ins caused minimal problems for the home defence, although Kirby did connect with one, heading high and wide. A Lucas free kick was blasted over the bar by Khomsi and the Ash keeper made a fantastic save directing a Kirby header around the post.

At the other end a frustrated Ash forward got himself cautioned for three fouls in as many minutes. When the same forward decided to question the referees awarding of an Ash free-kick, without a caution for Kyle Lucas, he was shown a second yellow card and subsequent red card, reducing the home side to ten men.

For the remainder of the first half Windsor had too many touches and decision making was poor. In fact it was Ash who had the best chance when Dennison mis-judged a through ball, was beaten by the forward who shot wide past the diving Jake Jenkins.

The second half did see a slightly higher tempo from Windsor, but mis-placed passes and inaccurate shooting were frustrating for all. Wayne Harvey was left exasperated in the six yard box on numerous occasions.

The introduction of Barry Dunbar changed the balance of the game and within minutes his persistence in winning a corner resulted in Adam Kirby heading home from a Chris Dean corner.

Windsor camped in Ash???s half but failed to test the goalkeeper enough and it wasn???t until injury time that Wayne Harvey got his reward, smashing home from just inside the box.

A frustrating day but progress in a National Cup competition and Windsor will host either Binfield or Royal Wootton Basset in the next round on Saturday 3rd October.
