The first match of 2005 brought terrible weather, a hard-fought
match and a goalless draw between Salisbury City and Slough Town.
The wet and windy conditions made any good football impossible, and
it showed with both teams having limited goalscoring opportunities.
Salisbury were woeful in front of goal, and should have put
themselves out of sight by half-time. Having said that, Slough
should have scored a couple towards the end of the first-half, but
preferred to walk the ball into the goal rather than shooting.
Half-time: Salisbury City 0-0
The second-half brought no change in the weather, but some
entertaining and end-to-end football.
Salisbury had their fair share of goalscoring chances, but Slough
didn't really look like scoring themselves despite threatening the
hosts goal several time during the second-half.
The closest the Rebels came to scoring was a Steve Daly shot from
a corner been cleared off the line.
Salisbury could have stolen it right at the end, but somehow
managed to waste two or three good chances.
