The Report
This game may not have had everything, but, great defending aside, it had most things including a rollercoaster for the emotions. Despair at missed chances and near misses gave way to euphoria when Slough equalised in the last minute.

This game gave the expectation of goals, as both sides records showed their ability to score and let in goals, and the match lived up to expectations.

Wealdstone took the lead after 9 minutes through Beckford, courtesy of slack Slough marking, but Slough fought back, generally dominating the midfield. Slough pressure lead to several chances going just the wrong side of the post, with Wealdstone also looking dangerous when they countered. Brooks and Ballard both played well, but the half time score was 1-0 as the pressure failed to result in an equaliser.

Wealdstone's and Beckford's second came after 5 minutes of the second half, a spectacular volley from a defensive header, and while frustration set in among the fans, the team itself plugged away, repeating the first half's near misses. As the final whistle neared, it seemed it was not going to be Slough's day, until with 7 minutes left, West placed the ball into the top corner over Wealdstone's keeper who was making his home debut on a familiar ground having just signed from Northwood.

Wealdstone have been their before, having lost 4-5 to Hendon recently, after being 4-1 up. They looked jittery and Slough responded. The goal came in the 90th minute, with an own goal, a delightful back header from Wealdstone's 15. Oh happy days!!

3 points from Hendon would be nice, stroll on Saturday. This team may not be the best, but it does keep on trying and today it paid off.
