The Report
It was the Rebels who were appling the early poressure to George Borg's Braintree Town who were unbeaten before today. With only 10 minutes on the clock Ian Hodges headed a Josias Carbon cross straight at the 'keeper.

Three minutes later a Braintree free-kick on the edge of the box was blasted through the wall but Jake Whincup managed to punch the ball away.

Barely a minute later Slough opened the scoring when Ian Hodges beat two defenders down the right wing and crossed the ball to Josias Carbon to fire home from inside the penalty area.

13 minutes later Glen Harris came close to doubling Slough's lead but he fired narrowly wide following a free-kick.

On 35 minutes Matt Murphy opened his goal-scoring account when James Saulsbury played a beautiful ball into the area for Matt Murphy to hit the ball past the 'keeper.

Murphy managed to net another goal before half-time. With 2 minutes to go before the interval, he smacked the ball into the goal from close range.

Half-Time score: 3-0 to Slough

Because of the heat, play slowed down significantly during the second-half. There isn't much to write about, Wilkinson was subbed with Spencer replacing him on 75 minutes, 10 minutes later Danny Steer and matt Miller came on at the expense of Alex Haddow and Matt Murphy. Braintree didn't threaten at all during the second-half and the game drifted out into an easy win for Slough.
