Windsor & Eton will have to do it all again after they were held to a draw against Aylesbury in the FA Trophy at Stag Meadow.
Before the game there was a minutes silence in honour of former assistant manager Colin Lippiatt who passed away yesterday.
Winsor pushed on in the early stages and looked as if they might run away with the match but were constantly shut out where it mattered.
It wasn't until mid-way through the half when Leon Soloman's free kick found the head of David Woozley forcing Steve Smith to tip over the bar.
Just a few minutes later and Smith could do nothing about Windsor's opener.
David Pearce waltzed through the visiting defence before curling a left footed effort past Smith and into the top corner.
The lead should have been doubled on the stroke of half time when Jake Parsons picked out Michael Chennells who fired over from close range.
The second half again saw Windsor start strong and come close to doubling their lead when Chennells held off Riccardo Biggi to cross for Fiston Manuella whose effort went over.
Windsor would live to regret these missed chances as Aylesbury soon drew level when Delroy Preddie mis-punched Daniel Mead's corner into his own net.
The introduction of Ikenna Ofoche almost had an immediate effect on the match when he raced through and rounded the keeper before squaring for Pearce who shot over.
At the other end Charlie Collins managed to get round Preddie but his effort could only find the side netting.
Pearce almost wrapped up the match in spectacular style when a long ball out of the Windsor defence was headed down to Pearce whose volley was well saved by Smith.
