by Nathan on 25/01/2004

The return of Veli Hakki to Slough spurred us onto a 2-0 victory over Tooting & Mitcham when a 0-0 draw seemed much more likely.

The Report

The Rebels recorded a much needed and deserved win over Tooting & Mitcham United to keep within touching distance of the top six. This match saw the welcome return of midfielder Veli Hakki, who came on as a substitute in the 70th minute, along with Alex Haddow in place of Danny Steer and Ryan Williams (left). The introduction of these two midfielders changed the game for the better and injected some much needed creativity and vision into the squad.

Slough started well and created chances and put Tooting under some pressure but it was Tooting who should have gone into the half-time break several goals up if it were not for Alan Foster's goalkeeping heroics.

Slough had a goal disallowed for offside on 30 minutes, but we should have had a penalty. One of Tooting's defenders brought down Ian Hodge (I think (right)) inside the area and Tony Boot tapped in from close range.

Then the game turned into a distinctly boring affair. Tooting looked more likely to score, but we could always count on Alan Foster to get us out of trouble.

The highlight of the second-half was the lengthy 10 minute delay on 75 minutes. The referee had hurt himself and there was dispute as to who would replace him. Eventually, one of the linesmen took charge, and he was replaced by a photographer from the crowd.

In the 83rd minute, Slough took the lead when a Veli Hakki cross wasn't cleared properly and Ian Hodge chested the ball in from close range.

The game was won in injury time when Glen Harris (above left) went on a great run into the area and slotted the ball past the goalkeeper and into the back of the net for 2-0.

This win leaves us in 10th position and 5 points off the vital top six place going into Saturday's trip to Corinthian-Casuals.
