A Staines Town side, including some former Rebels were too good for
Slough as they went away from stag Meadow with a 2-1 win.
Manuella gave Staines an early lead, as poor defending allowed him
to head in from a long throw for a soft goal.
As the game went on, Slough gradually became more threatening, as
midway through the first half, Rebels midfielder Leigh Mason
(pictured left) was through on goal with only former Slough 'keeper
Shaun Allaway to beat, decided not to shoot and a good chance was
Tariq Nabil doubled the visitor's lead early in the second half,
again Slough defending was at fault as they allowed Nabil to head in
a corner from close range.
20 minutes to go, Slough began to look more threatening, and
eventually pulled a goal back when Ian Hodges (pictured right)
headed in Josias Carbon's cross.
Slough continued to pressurise Staines goal, but were unable to
find an equaliser and the visitors held on for a deserved win.
