The Report
The Rebels suffered a setback in their push for a top six finish when they lost 2-1 at home to title contenders Dulwich Hamlet. But some pride can be taken from this match as The Rebels did deserve a point from this fiercely fought encounter.

Slough gave a debut to Danish defender Martin Moller to make up for the departure of Anthony Howard but with Steve Daly and Paul Barrowcliff out through injury this was never going to be an easy match. It wasn't. Three minutes in and we were already down to ten men. Adrian Brown (left) foolishly got himself sent off for pulling back a defender. Dulwich converted the resulting penalty.

Slough gradually began to settle into the match without really threatening the Dulwich goal.

On 55 minutes their forward ran through on goal and slotted the ball past Alan Foster (right) and into the bottom corner. For some reason this send the Dulwich bench, players and fans wild.

Now was the time where Slough usually give up. Not this time though. Slough battled to the end and scored a deserved goal to get us back into it when Ian Hodge headed home through a penalty area full of players from a tight angle.

Dulwich scored a third but it was dissallowed for offside. Their forward outpaced the Slough defence and headed the ball around Alan Foster.

Slough were unlucky not to even things up about ten minutes from the end when Tony Boot (left) ran onto a long ball into the area, but his bullet header hit the upright and rebounded to saftey.

Before the end Slough missed a handful of chances and one of them was an absolute sitter which Ryan Spencer should have done better with. He hit the ball wide of the target from about two yards out at the far post.

It was a relief for Dulwich when the final whistle went and they knew that they were lucky to emerge from the battlefield with all three points. Slough deserved a point but did not get it.

Slough now really have to make sure that they take they chances ahead of Tuesday's trip to Walton & Hersham. If they don't, there's no telling how they might slip up next time.
