The Report
Slough Town returned to winning ways after our disappointing result at Lewes with a comfortable victory over Banstead Athletic. In an entertaining match, there was no doubt that Slough deserved to win, but the 5-1 scoreline flattered us a little bit.

It was as early as the second minute that it was clear that it was going to be a high-scoring match, both teams having early chances to score.

Ian Hodges put Slough ahead on 10 minutes when their keeper shouted "keeper's ball!", Ian Hodges stepped up, intercepted the ball, took it round the keeper and hit it into the empty net.

Soon afterwards Slough had a chance to get a second. A handball on the edge of the area resulted in a free kick but you know Slough, they took it too quickly and wasted what might have been a very good chance.

For the rest of the half, both teams had opportunities to get on the scoresheet, but they should have made better use of them.

Glen Harris scored two goals in quick succession, his first came from a follow up from a previous shot, he fired the ball through the crowded area and into the back of the net.

His second was a good, if perhaps lucky shot. His shot hammered against the inside post and bounced into the goal.

At this point, the Rebels could have only thrown it away but two minutes after the restart, Banstead lost possession in mid-field, Ryan Spencer ran with the ball and crossed it into the area, their keeper went out to catch it, dropped it and left Haddow with a simple job of tapping the ball into the empty net. 4-0 to the Rebels.

Slough then took their foot off the accelerator and allowed Banstead to have a little more possession. With this decision made, Slough were then lucky that Banstead missed a whole load of opportunities to get back into the game, otherwise it might have been a different story.

Midway through the second half Slough conceded a soft goal. Slough gave away a throw-in adjacent to their area, their player steps up and unleashes a long throw-in into the area, it eluded everyone until Knight headed the ball home at the far post.

Slough wrapped up their biggest league win of the season when Ryan Spencer ran onto a loose ball and hit the ball past their keeper.
