The Rebels fought out a goalless draw at Claremont Road today.



Slough Town




Ryman League Premier Division

Saturday 9th April 2005
The Report
This was the second meeting between the two sides in three days and Slough, having had three straight defeats in their previous three games, weren't feeling all that confident. With our chances of making the play-offs now gone, Slough fielded a weakened team with reserve players Daniel Cann and Leigh Mason given chances to impress.

Hendon looked more threatening of the two teams, and only Ian Hodges header off the line from John Frendo's shot keeping the scores level in the early stages of the game.

Matt Murphy had the next chance of the match, but the headed wide Josias Carbon's cross.

That was about all Slough could muster in terms of threatening Hendon's goal for much of the half until the half-hour mark. Michael Murphy and Josias Carbon both had close range shots blocked

Lust minutes before half time, Leigh Mason had a glorious chance to take the lead for the visitors. His shot from inside the area was only parried away by goalkeeper Dave King, but the rebound went straight off the post and away from the danger area.

2nd half

Slough became more and more threatening as the game went on, restricting Hendon to only a few chances, although Hendon debutant Bradley Bubb almost had the perfect start to his footballing career, just minutes after coming on as a substitute. His fierce shot appeared to take a deflection off a Slough defender as it went narrowly wide of the far corner.

A late substitution for Slough in Matt Miller replacing Dan Cann failed to change the outcome of the game, as the Rebels recorded a seemingly meaningless point and went four games without a win. They still need only one more win to be officially safe from the drop zone going into Tuesday's home game with Staines Town.
