The Report

Slough’s first home game of the season in front of a sparse crowd, ended in a goalless draw, giving both sides their first point of the season.

Leyton, one of the division’s fancied teams, came to Stag Meadow on the back of a 0-2 home defeat on Saturday. Slough’s team sheet included Jamie Brooks, on loan from Oxford United.

The first half was hard fought but generally speaking, uneventful, Leyton having most of the pressure, and forcing a number of corners. Slough defended well though, and were unlucky not to be given a penalty before half time when a Slough player was clearly pushed over in the Leyton area.

The second half started with no team changes, and a lingering suspicion that unless someone made a mistake, this would be a draw, as neither side looked like finding that final decisive pass, but as time went on Slough came more into the match, helped by several fine long passes from Wilkinson. Hodges too was proving a handful for the Leyton defence with their No 6 resorting to pulling, pushing and shoving to keep Hodges in check. A shame really as he looked a good defender and their battle was interesting to watch. The Leyton 6 was booked after 65 minutes for kicking the ball away, and soon afterwards Slough stepped up a gear, with a wrong footed Hodges missing a half chance in a goalmouth scramble.

Soon afterwards the Slough striker shot narrowly wide— it wasn’t to be his night. Slough continued with the pressure as the match came to a conclusion, but the killer goal wasn’t there, despite some half chances. In the end though it was Leyton who nearly nicked it, but a last minute goal was offside, much to Slough’s relief. The lingering suspicion had come home to roost.

We seem to be improving slowly as the players start to gel as a team, so roll on Saturday.
