WINDSOR have reached the third round proper of the FA Vase this season after a 2-1 win away at Erith Town on Sunday.

The second round tie brought together two in-form sides but for Windsor it is a ninth consecutive win in all competitions, their second best run under manager Mick Woodham.

The first half at Oakwood ended goalless but their were chances at both ends. Nadir Shafi forced Erith keeper Adam Molloy to save with his legs, before Windsor stopper Hugo Sobte got a strong hand to a Steadman Callender volley to push the ball over the crossbar.

The deadlock was broken six minutes after the break by Windsor wide man Shafi. Former professional striker Barry Hayles had a shot deflected and Shafi, a product of the Cox Green Academy, reacted first to nip in ahead of Molloy and turn the ball into the net with his body.

However, their lead did not last long as the Southern Counties East League Premier Division club drew level just four minutes later. Full-back Dan Palfrey was left un-marked at a corner and he headed down by Sobte from inside six yards.

Windsor boss Mick Woodham said his team would travel without fear and his team continued to press, restoring their lead after 70 minutes.

Player-coach Ashley Smith crossed into the box where Hayles chested the ball down for Jack Denton to fire a right-foot volley low past keeper Molloy from 10-yards.

The second round tie became scrappy in the closing stages and Windsor had to defend for five minutes of time added on but the Hellenic Premier Division club held on for the win and can now look forward to the third round draw (1pm).

The third round of the Vase is due to be played on Saturday, December 3.

Windsor return to action in the league when Abingdon United are the visitors to Stag Meadow on Tuesday, November 21 (7.45pm).
