The Report
Slough had to win today, and win we did! It wasn't a great performance, but we did what we had to do and took all three points. It was a welcome change of fortunes after the Hampton game.

The impressive Imperial Fields stadium was just an example of what Kennedy Park might be like if we move there. Crash barriers behind both goals, an impressive stand and clubhouse, lots of room and a nice pitch.

It was clear from the start that Slough were going to win, it was just a matter of how many goals we would score and concede. Alex Haddow scored a perfectly good goal from a follow up from a Freddie Hyatt free-kick early on, but the linesman flagged for offside.

Freddie Hyatt then wasted a good chance soon afterwards when he fired a shot wide.

Slough then began to look more comfortable despite some dangerous breaks from Tooting & Mitcham. From then on it was end to end stuff. Tooting & Mitcham forced Alan Foster into some comfortable saves but Slough then took the lead on 26 minutes when Steve Daly controlled the ball, turned round and volleyed it into the net from inside the area.

The second half began, both sides picked up where they left off in the first half, only this time neither team looked like scoring. There were some half chances for both teams and then we were all wondering weather or not Ian Hodges would get that birthday hat-trick we were all predicting. He did score though, Alex Haddow won the ball down the left flank, ran with it, passed it to the oncoming Ian Hodges who fired the ball into the corner of the net.

From that point onwards Slough were just waiting for the game to finish. Three points were guaranteed. Slough now lye in 14th place with 16 points from 10 games.
