SLOUGH Town are out of the FA Cup this season after a 4-0 second round defeat against Rochdale at Arbour Park on Tuesday.

A sell-out crowd of 1,950 came to support The Rebels - the biggest-ever attendance at Arbour Park - but in the end Rochdale proved too good.

The Dale, 82 places above Slough in the football pyramid, took the lead with a goal from Calvin Andrew after 13 minutes.

The home team had chances to equalise before the half-time interval with captain Mark Nisbet having a volley saved by keeper Josh Lillis and Lee Togwell heading wide when he should have hit the target.

Rochdale captain Ian Henderson hit the post early on in the second half, before Lillis produced a fantastic save to deny James Dobson with his glancing header.

Callum Camps doubled the lead with a free-kick on 67 minutes, before Nathan Smart was unfortunate not to pull a goal back when his shot hit the post moments later.

Slough continued to push forward but League One Dale secured the win with late goals from Henderson and substitute Matthew Done.

Rebels joint-manager Neil Baker told the Observer: "We had a real go. We started well for five or 10 minutes but then conceded a poor goal from our point of view, so we were disappointed with that.

"For the next 15 minutes were weary and showed them a bit too much respect, but then leading into half-time we started to get on the ball and play a little bit more.

"We created a few chances and if we score, we're absolutely delighted, but we were really pleased with how long we stayed in the game. I felt we were always in with a chance and on another day we score one or two."

Slough midfielder Simon Dunn: "The scoreline flattered Rochdale but they deserved to win, they were the better team on the night and it just wasn't to be.

"Rochdale played really well, they got the ball moving, and they done a job on us really. I enjoyed the occasion but unfortunately it was not meant to be."

Julie Sliski, 57, widow of former Supporters' Trust Secretary, Chris Sliski, said she was still immensely proud of the team.

She said: "I think it has been absolutely brilliant - the atmosphere is really good - you couldn't ask for anymore really.

"A goal would have been nice but they're four divisions above us and I don't think we've anything to be ashamed of."

Fan Michael Ballard, 48, of Upton, said: "We played well it's just a pity we didn't score - we hit the post. I think probably a fair result.

"The were not massively better than us - not four leagues better anyway."
