The Report
The Rebels extended their unbeaten home run to 11 games with a much needed win over 8th placed Bromley. But the game wasn't all positives for Slough though, there were many forced substitutions due to masses of injury in the squad and the performance was very much unconvincing.

Ian Hodges put us ahead inside 1 minute. To be honest, I can't comment on this as I didn't see it, I was still making my way to the goal and was just going behind the stand when I heard a cheer from the crowd!

Less than 2 minutes later Ryan Spencer doubled our lead when he headed home from close range at the far post.

Slough were then putting Bromley under some real pressure. Alex Haddow created a chance soon afterwards but fired wide.

More pressure from both sides were unable to create another goal. Bromley were fighting back and were unlucky not to put themselves back in the match when Winlock fired a long shot for Foster to pull off a good one-handed save to deny Bromley from grabbing a goal. But the pressure wasn't over yet. The ball ran loose. Mark Hammond got to it before the chasing Adrian Browne but Browne tackled him well and was able to clear.

Matt Miller could have extended our lead when he spotted the keeper off his line, but his long range header was cleared off the line by a defender.

Adrian Browne won the ball and played a good through ball to Paul Barrowcliff whose run took him up to the Bromley area only to be fouled on the edge of the box.  Penalty. Ryan Spencer stepped up and coolly tucked away the penalty to the keeper's right.

Bromley's pressure soon paid off when Dean Forbes crossed the ball into the Slough area for Michael Murphy to hit into his own net.

Around the half-hour mark, Matt Miller made a run through the Bromley half. He ran past 2 defenders and slotted the ball past the oncoming Bromley keeper.

Slough came out for the second-half in the hope that they would be able to prevent any more Bromley goals. They did that for the majority of the half with some lucky defending.

Slough were putting Bromley under more pressure though, but chance after chance went begging.

But Bromley were in a never say die attitude. Their fans were trying to make sure that their trip to Windsor wasn't a complete waste after all with some camp like sing-songs and chanting. They did manage a consolation goal though, Danny Smith's close range header couldn't miss the target.

Slough climb up the table to 9th position with a record of 8 games won, 2 drawn and 5 ending in defeat. On Saturday the Rebels travel up to Horsham with an excellent chance to gain an away win that have been quite rare this season, but to be frank, we just need the points on the board if we are to gain a top six place by the end of the season. Eddie Denton will be hoping that we don't pick up any more injuries as they are there ready to strike any time and damage our chances of gaining a top six position.
