Elliot Benyon made a scoring return to action as Wealdstone scraped past CB Hounslow United in the Middlesex Senior Charity Cup.

The top scorer has been missing with a shoulder injury for the best part of two months but came off the bench with 11 minutes to go.

And he pounced twice, taking his personal tally to 19 in all competitions, as well as clinching a 4-4 draw with their lowly opponents.

He then swept home a penalty in the shootout as the Vanarama National South outfit crawled into the next round, winning 5-4.

There was further injury joy for Stones fans as Matty Whichelow also appeared as a substitute.

The game itself at Bedfont & Feltham’s Orchard ground was a lot more difficult than Wealdstone would have wanted as their Combined Counties Premier Division hosts defied the four division gap.

Having made nine changes to the side that defeated Truro City in the league on Saturday, this was a chance for some of the fringe players to stake a claim for a starting place against Chelmsford City at Grosvenor Vale on Saturday.

But Andrew Juett gave Hounslow an early lead before the Stones levelled through debutant Nathan Corkery four minutes before half-time.

Billy Gibson fired Stones in front before Gavin Bamford levelled again from a free-kick.

Bamford then must have thought he was going to be the hero when he smashed his second from the penalty spot to give Hounslow a 3-2 lead with just seven minutes to go.

Benyon’s equaliser was quickly cancelled out by Jordan Ireland goal as the shock stayed on the cards.

But Benyon had the last say when Omar Koroma was brought down in the fourth minute of injury time, allowing the Stones top scorer to double his tally on the night with the final kick of the game.

The match went straight to penalties and after the first six were all scored Bamford blazed his spot kick over the top.

That was to prove the only miss as Nathan Mavila hit the clinching kick to put Stones into the quarter-finals against Bedfont & Feltham at Grosvenor Vale.

Wealdstone: Granger, Rodrigues, Mavila, Corkery, Brown, Hunt (Gordon 62), McGleish, Gibson, Francis (Benyon 79), Koroma, Lafleur (Whichelow 72)

Subs (not used): Samuels, Wright

Goals: Corkery 41, Gibson 56, Benyon 86, 90+4
