Welling United manager Tony Reynolds was unhappy with his player's performance, despite his side progessing to the next round with a 1-0 win over Egham.

Despite having the bulk of possession, the Wings were made to work hard for victory against the Division Three Ryman League side, leaving Reynolds disappointed.

He said: “I'm more than disappointed, but the most important thing is that we are through to the next round. We created enough chances to have won easily.

“The players looked very tired and sometimes I question their preparation before a game. All I ask is for commitment from the players. I'd like to have won the game by three or four goals, but in the last 20 minutes we faded while they looked stronger.

“We should be as fit and as strong as anyone else and that's what hurts from my point of view.

“We should be winning games and stamping our authority against lower league opposition, and I've made my feelings known to the players.

“I don't like to accept this type of performance, but we got through.”

The only goal of the game came from Gary Abbott six minutes after half-time with a classic build-up.

Anthony Riviere combined well with Powell down the right being sending over a perfect cross to the waiting Abbott, who headed home for his sixth goal in the last five games.

Egham piled on the pressure in the last 15 minutes. First, Marlon Stuart saw his shot go just wide and then Russell Edwards had to clear off his own line in stoppage time.

But Welling were unlucky when they had a goal disallowed for offside seconds before the final whistle.

Welling's reward for beating Egham is a home tie against fellow Dr Martens league side Newport Isle of Wight on Saturday week. The Wings will be confident of victory after beating them 3-0 in a league game a couple of weeks ago.

Meanwhile, the Wings have two tough-looking away Dr Martens fixctutres trips. First to Salisbury on Saturday and then to unbeaten leaders Havant and Waterlooville next Tuesday.
