Windsor & Eton have made it through to the next round of the FA Trophy after winning their replay at Aylesbury 2-1.
Enforced changes due to Justin Clayton becoming a dad yesterday saw Sam Wadieh dropped into defence and Alex Sunasky given his first start.
Aylesbury fielded an unchanged starting eleven and soon had the upper hand.
A poor kick from Delroy Preddie allowed Glen Hawkins to cross for Gareth Price who forced Preddie to save only for Charlie Collins to slot the ball into the net.
Windsor came close to levelling minutes later when Jeff Brown's long ball bounced over Mark Boyce setting up David Pearce who fired just over the bar.
Preddie then saved well from Hawkins after he managed to skip through several challenges before the bizarre moment of the match.
Whilst Aylesbury broke down the left referee Redmond suddenly called a halt to the match, pointed to the penalty spot and awarded the home side a penalty.
The official claimed a push on an Aylesbury player but no two players were within a couple of feet of each other and no one even appealed for it.
Hawkins stepped up but was unable to beat Preddie who managed to gather the ball at the second attempt.
That seemed to get Windsor going and following a some neat passing across the midfield Jake Parsons managed to cross for Michael Chennells who's header was well saved by Steve Smith.
Windsor were then forced into a goalkeeper change when Preddie went down with an ankle injury and was replaced by James Larkin.
Despite the change Windsor pushed on and ended the half with a flurry of chances that eventually saw them pull level.
Michael Chennells sent an effort just wide when put through by Ashleigh James before turning provider for David Pearce.
Chennells got down the right after Fiston Manuella flicked on Jeff Brown's long ball and he crossed for Pearce to finish from close range.
Pearce should have added a second in injury time when he fired just over and then Sam Wadieh headed against the bar from a Jake Parsons corner.
Thesecond half saw Windsor start strongly with Pearce having an effort cleared off the line and then a penalty turned down when the ball struck the hand of Ricardo Biggi.
Parsons then had two efforts superbly tipped over the bar by Steve Smith, the first from a 30 yard free kick and the second after he had worked his way through the home defence.
As the half ran down the prospect of extra time loomed ever nearer and when Manuella slipped the ball through for Pearce and he lifted it over the bar it looked to be one of those nights.
That was until a minte later when Chennells raced through and with only Smith to beat slotted the ball into the bottom corner to put the Royalists through to face Brackley Town.
