The Report
A late strike from substitute Tony Boot (left) salvaged a deserved point for the Rebels against third-placed Hampton & Richmond Borough as they hope to get their top-six challenge back on track. Although we needed to win after our two previous results, a draw against one of the chasing pack considering our current circumstances is quite an achievement.

After Slough had been hammered 4-0 at The Beveree earlier on in the season, there were mixed feelings leading up to the game. Some people thought that Slough didn't stand a chance and that they would be thrashed again, others though that we would put in an improved performance. People who thought the second would be correct, although we still failed to produce a clear-cut chance until the 90th minute.

The first-half saw Slough have most of the play but we were unable to do much with it. We looked most likely to score since the Ashford game before Christmas, though Hampton were dangerous on the break, and it was the visitors who took the lead just before half-time.

Alan Foster (right) punched an Richard O'Conner shot over the bar and from the resulting corner, Alan Inns hit it into the area and it flew past Alan Foster and was cleared away by Adrian Browne (below left), straight into the path of Adrian Allen who fired home.

The second-half was completely the other way round. Slough were poor, and Hampton blocked out any danger, with a little help from the referee of course.

In the last minute, Tony Boot scored a equaliser that, for our first-half performance, was thoroughly deserved. Jarvis attempted to hit the ball out of play, but Tony Boot snuck in at the last second and nipped the ball from him, dribbled it up towards goal and hit it past former Slough 'keeper Adrian Blake.

Slough have fallen behind in the race for a top-six place, we are three points off 6th place but with a game in hand and a record of: Ply 25, W 12, D 4 and L 9. Saturdays game at Worthing is vital and is a must-win.
