Windsor's FA Cup dream ended after just one game following a 1-4 defeat against Wembley.
Windsor gave starting debuts to Remmel Clarke, Jack Denton and Barry Hayles and saw Jon Case and Charlie Dean come off of the bench for their first matches.
Missing were the influential Keiron Knight and Riccardo Cannon through unavailability/injury.
A hat trick from MOM Zaied Sabti saw Windsor knocked out at the first stage yet again.
Windsor possibly had the better of the early exchanges with Barry Hayles going close on 6'. On 16' a nice one two with Remmel Clarke and Hayles looked positive only for visiting keeper Przemyslaw Mifrzwa to save.
On 17' Wembley broke clear and SABTI opened the scoring. In the next couple of minutes Wembley were a little unfortunatenot to go further in front with first Luke Brooks-Smith coming to the rescue to stop Sabti followed a minute later by the upright being struck by Calvin Kasieye from just a couple of feet out.
The second half saw Windsor try to draw level only for SABTI to score his second with a shot from the edge of the box. The lead was extended further on 68' when Brooks-Smith conceded a penalty and SABTI duly claimed his hat trick.
On 78' a through ball from Gus Bowles saw substitute Nadir Shafi upended in the box. BROOKS-SMITH despatched the penalty to give Windsor a glimmer of hope.
Debateble refereeing saw Windsor have claims for 2 penalties turned down when first Hayles and then Shafi looked to have been fouled, play was eventually stopped when the injured Shafi was deemed to be offside.
Deep into stoppage time the match was put beyond doubt when Lawrence OLORNNFEMI scored from close range.
Not a good day for the home team who found it hard to cope with the visitors extra pace.
