A Match Report from Saturday's draw against Ashford Town at Stag Meadow.

Slough Town 1-1 Ashford Town (mx)

Date: 23/08/03  
KO: 3:00 PM  
Venue: Stag Meadow (Windsor & Eton FC) 
Slough Goals: Tony Boot (83 min)
Opponent Goals: Richard Butler (14 min)
Attendance: 275 

1st Half

The Rebels weren't in it for most of the first half, we were giving away possession on a regular basis and our passing game never really seemed to click, although it was more effective than last Monday. Slough conceded a silly goal to a team who had not scored this season, Richard Butler heading the ball home from close range. Ashford could have extended their lead, but, like Slough, didn't take full advantage of their chances.

In an attempt to turn the game upside-down, Michael Gilkes, who was stepping in for acting manager, Eddie Denton, threw on Andy Deaner and Ian Hodges for Glen Harris and Adrian Brown. This gave Slough a more attacking edge, and it showed.

Just before half-time Andy Deaner set up Ian Hodges to shoot, and to see his shot saved by Ashford keeper, Paul Burgess.     

2nd Half

Although Slough had most of the play they failed to find an equaliser. Tony Boot fired wide when he should have hit the target and Andy Deaner headed over from close range.

Finally, after many chances, Slough had their chance to level the game up. An Ashford defender handled the ball inside the area and a penalty was awarded. Tony Boot stepped up and coolly converted from the spot.

Slough had a chance to win the game late on when Ian Hodges found himself some space to the left. He ran into the penalty area and blasted the ball over the bar when it would have been easier to dribble the ball into a suitable position and shoot properly.

All in all it was a fortunate point. Slough didn't take their chances and that is what let them down. Although we deserved another goal, a point was probably a fair result. The referee was useless, he missed at least two handballs and totally screwed it up when he gave a goal kick to Ashford when it was obviously a corner to Slough.
