Away win in Big Free Bet Challenge Cup

Much-changed team come out on top to progress to Round Three

After the previous week's abortive trip to Hartley Wintney the Blues made a return trip and came away with a victory that now sees them into Round Three of the competition.
The starting line-up consisted of just 2 from last Saturday's side that faced Cambridge City (Ryan Wharton and Allen Bossman) and also featured Alex Salmon who was making his second appearance since his long sabbatical and a late appearance from Marcus Mealing following his 3 game suspension. Also included were the young full-back pairing of Harry Rush and Fabien Etienne making their debuts.
The first half was to prove to be one of little goal threat with the first opportunity taking 26 minutes to arrive with Jordace Holder-Spooner's corner being flicked on by the head of Curtis Chapple but being taken by home keeper Frederick Gee on his line.
For the home side Luke Perkins managed to get through the Marlow defence on the right but pulled his shot across the face of the goal in the 37th minute with a fierce shot from James Tennant going just too high in the final minute of the half. In between these last two incidents the Blues had taken the lead following the impressive salmon winning the ball deep in his won half and starting the move through the middle that ended with Jordace Holder-Spooner running through to slot the ball past Gee for the only score of the half.
A superb cross from Chapple out wide almost led to Marlow increasing their lead just minutes into the second period whilst we had to wait for the introduction of Mealing for the next effort on goal with his curling shot going just over the home bar.
Four minutes later though the Row were back in the game when a careless foul presented the opportunity to get the ball towards the Marlow goal where a lack of bodied allowed Michael Buck took advantage of the freedom allowed to strike the equaliser past Oneal Garnes.
Just as penalties (no extra time now) were looking ominous up stepped Mealing to settle matters in favour of the Blues when a quick break from deep saw him one-on-one and he let fly with his shot that took a part deflection off a defender and flew into the net to give victory to the visitors.
