The Report
How bloody disappointing. The entire season has being leading up to this game and we weren't even at the races for it. We did however, see one of the flukiest goals ever seen at a Slough match, so that's some consolation.

Our biggest crowd of the season packed into Stag Meadow to see what should have been a cracker of a match, but the majority of the crowd who were Slough fans went home disappointed after the Rebels went down 3-1 having failed to muster one proper shot on target all afternoon.

The early part of the match wasn't spectacular. Slough were unable to break through a resolute Windsor defence that included former Rebel Leon Townley. Windsor generally only attacked on the break in confidence of knowing that is wasn't going to be Slough's day.

Windsor were always more effective in front of goal and our defence just couldn't cope with the partnership of Keith Scott and Craig O'Conner.

The rest of the match was pretty much predictable. Slough only created half-chances that came to nothing and Windsor attacking us on the break, but, against all odds it was the 'hosts' who took the lead just before the break. The goal would have qualified for "David Seaman's Goalkeeping Nightmares". Windsor 'keeper, Chuck Martini, under pressure from Matt Miller (left), came out to collect a ball before Miller beat him to it, but instead of trapping it with his feet, he let it roll under his feet and into the empty net.

Our delight of leading our landlords didn't last long. Just two minutes later, a Dave Carroll free-kick was whipped into the crowd of players outside our penalty area and Keith Scott rose and headed the ball past Alan Foster (right) and into the net for a soft goal.

Things didn't get any better. Six minutes into the second-half Keith Scott headed past Alan Foster from a left-wing again to send Windsor into the lead. And Windsor put the game beyond Slough with only sixty minutes gone when Craig O'Conner ran on the break and fired the ball past Alan Foster.

All in all, a poor performance by the Rebels. Slough were second best at all times expect the first 20 minutes when we just edged the game but didn't create much. I just hope that we will do better in when the two teams meet again in April.

RebelsOnline Man of the Match

Chuck Martini (Windsor goalkeeper)

He succeeded in scoring for us, something that not one of our players even looked like doing.
