The Report
At half time many Slough fans were worried, as the home side went in 0-1 down, somewhat against the run of play. At full time the worries had disappeared after a dominating second half performance which saw Slough end up worthy 4-1 winners.

Although started the game brightly, it was Maldon who threatened to score first when after 6 minutes a Maldon shot was blocked on the line. Slough generally dominated the first 30 minutes, but although there was a lot of possession, the final walk in pass wasn't happening. Maldon got into the game a bit more without creating much, when against the run of play Simon Parker latched onto a through ball to easily slot home with the Slough defence looking decidedly slow. The goal spurred on Maldon who started to believe in themselves. The half chances continued to fall to Slough, but despite good work from Hodges, it wasn't going our way.

Many Slough fans thought the first half was poor. I disagree. We were unlucky to be down. The individual skills were all ours, but it just wasn't happening.

In the second half it did happen. From the kick off, Slough displayed a bit more urgency and hunger, and after only 4 minutes, after pressure, the ball fell to Ballard towards the edge of the box. In space he lashed a beauty into the roof of the net. Maybe my eyesight's failing, but I couldn't even see it.

Slough pressed forward, looking good in attack, but still a bit wayward with the marking in defence, but Slough certainly looked capable of scoring more, and in the 67th minute Steve Daly got in a clear header, directed down and gave the keeper no chance. The introduction of Josh Miller gave Slough's attack some needed pace, and soon after his introduction he got onto a Hodges header across goal to make it 3-1.

The Rebels were now clearly in control, threading passes together near the box, though the final goal came from a Miller cameo run that Carbon would have been proud of. 4-1 and a comprehensive win that was thoroughly deserved. A good all round performance with no weak links. Still wish we'd shoot more often though.
