CONCORD Rangers booked their place in Monday's Ryman Premier play-off final against Lowestoft with a heart-of-a-lion comeback win over Wealdstone after extra-time tonight.

The Stones were good value for their 62nd minute lead through the prolific Richard Jolly, but a late leveller from Steve King and an extra-time winner from Tony Stokes sent the Beachboys through.

Wealdstone were completely dominant for the opening 20 minutes with their best effort seeing Southend loanee keeper Luke Chambers pull off a wonder save to push Chris O'Leary's deflected effort over the bar.

By then O'Leary had already headed down and wide from a corner when he should have scored.

Concord settled after that but were so lucky not to fall behind five minutes before the break when the hosts hit the bar twice in quick succession.

First Alex Dyer swished a half-volley against the face of the woodwork and Peter Dean put a very presentable follow-up shot into the side netting.

Then Dean - drafted into the starting line up at the last minute following an injury to Wes Parker in the warm up - slid an effort onto the bar when Lee Chappell flicked on Scott McGleish's left-wing cross.

Concord - predictably - were better after the restart and they capped a bright opening with Steve King heading against the cross bar after Greenhalgh's sensation run down the left had earned their first corner of the night.

So it was a body blow when they fell behind in the 62nd minute when James Elmes was harshly booked for a foul on the edge of the box, and Chappell curled in the dead ball for the evergreen Richard Jolly to glance home a header.

Jolly sprung the offside trap soon after and cut the ball back for McGleish, and he had time to take a touch and produce a shot which Chambers did brilliantly to tip on to the bar.

Wealdstone were worth their lead but there was no doubting the nerves permeating around the 1,055-strong crowd at Grosvenor Vale as the game entered the final stages.

The equaliser came with a minute to go when a ball into the box was only half-cleared and Leon Gordon's scuffed shot from the edge of the box made its way through a host of bodies and was turned in from close range by King. 

After a nip-and-tuck opening half to extra time Concord took the lead four minutes after the restart through their talisman Tony Stokes.

The 29-goal man did not start the game because of illness but replaced McKenzie with Concord chasing the game and was on hand to turn the ball home from close range after King's header had been clawed off the line by Banks.

It sent to travelling Concord fans into delirium as they started to contemplate Monday's showdown at Crown Meadow.
