The Report
More do-do than da-da. Best summed up by Eddie Denton's comments in the Observer. "Some of the players do not have the mentality I am looking for" "They are fair weather players. It was appalling for them (the fans) to watch."

The midfield just weren't interested. Completely over run. Not helped by some poor defending, which for the last goal was like something from the Keystone Kops reserves.

The first half was fairly scrappy from the start, with the players failing to pass or even talk to each other. By the 20 minute mark the K's looked to be the higher league side, Slough always being second to the ball. Murph 1 was noticeable as 1 player who was up for it, but some of the others weren't just failing in their passes, they weren't even getting the ball in the first place.

The first Kingstonian goal came just before half time, when Slough lost the ball on the edge of their own area twice in a row, and Lee shot high into the net.

Eddie's displeasure was obvious as the team came back out after only 8
minutes---either they didn't deserve a break or Eddie thought they might just score if there was no opposition. The second half showed some slight improvement with Murph 1 scoring from a 30 yd blinder after 58 minutes. For a few minutes Slough looked interested, but K's struck back after another slough double mistake, (2 missed tackles), Okukwa scoring after 68 minutes.

Slough threatened little until the 85th minute when Carbon, one of the few other players to deserve credit, scored a barely believable individual goal having somehow beaten a good half of the K's team.

The Keystone Kops then took over allowing the K's to win it.

Although the defence made some shocking mistakes, they had little in front of them, and my view is that the blame lay mainly with the midfield--they just didn't turn up.
