Sendings Off

Windsor continue to re-write the record books after seeing off Hamble Club 2-0 to book an FA Vase Querter-Final place.

Going into the game Windsor Manager Mick Woodham knew he was going to be without some key personell.

Veteran striker Barry Hayles (injured), new signing Matty Woods (work), Nadir Shafi, Matt Stockill (suspended) and Ade Oshilaja (cup tied) were all unavailable.

With both sides evenly matched as far as current league status goes it was all about who would get the better start.

An early chance or Paul Coyne from the endge of the area stung the hands of Rory Anderson in the visitors goal.

Kieran Knight then headed just wide before Luke Brooks-Smith saw his effort blocked.

There was a moment of concern for Windsor when Charlie Wagstaff landed on the neck of Coyne resulting in lengthy treatment but OK to continue.

The break in play seemed to work well for the visitors who started to put together a moment of pressure o the Windsor back line.

Nathan Lynch was given time to get the ball under control but could only send his effort high over the bar.

Wagstaff would then get space on the edge of the box but he was also off target with the ball going wide of the post.

Windsor soon got back in control of the game with Jack Denton's deflected effort going jst over the bar.

The home sides pressure paid off just before the half hour when Denton managed to ride two challenges and the go past Coby Wilson before setting up Riccardo Cannon who lifted the ball over Anderson for the opener.

Partial credit for the goal should go to referee Wayne Cartmel who played an advantage on the second challenge on Denton when many others would have stopped the game.

Denton continured to run the visiting fullbacks ragged and almost increased the lead with a couple of well placed efforts.

Windsor started the second half the way that ended the first, well and truly on top.

There was barely five minutes on the clock when Windsor doubled their lead and effectivey killed off the tie.

A quick throw from keeper Hugo Sobte found Denton almost on the half way line who burst past Alex Blake and Prince McLean before racing into the box and firing past Anderson.

Denton continued to terrorise the visiting defenders and chances came and went to extend the lead further.

As for the visitors they couldn't seem to offer anythong dangerous infront of goal. The closest Sobte came to having to do anything other than routine catching was to get down quickly to beat Jack McCarthy to the ball.The final whistle signalled joyous scenes amongst the home players and supports as Windsor secured their place in the last 8 of the FA Vase.
