The Report

Both teams entered this match on the back of impressive, if surprising, wins, and both needed to extend their unbeaten runs to avoid falling back into the relegation scramble after breaking poor runs.

Slough started off where they left off against Bromley, and were unlucky not to take the lead in the first minute when McCleary's shot hit the underside of the Harrow bar and down onto the line before being cleared. The play was mostly Slough's for the first 10 minutes, after which Harrow came much more into the game. However in a rare Slough attack during the period of Harrow dominance, a Ballard long throw was deftly headed on by Hodges (at last someone on the near post!!), for Carbon to latch onto the loose ball and score.

The rest of the half was lively but fairly even, with Slough escaping a poor Masters clearance just before half time. The ball was soon at the Harrow end, where a similar mistake was punished by McCleary with an exquisite lob to make it 2-0 to Slough.

2nd half

Ten minutes into the second half Harrow broke down the right wing, got in a fine cross under pressure for Elliot Onochie to score a superb glancing header. Before long Slough hit back (3-1) courtesy of Leigh Mason who found the keeper out of position and lobbed him.

Slough's fourth came from a Hodges penalty after the ref judged him perhaps harshly, to have been fouled. The see-saw nature of the game continued as Harrow pulled one back (4-2) after Cark Masters spilled a low cross, Elliot Onochie slotting in the loose ball from a few yards.

The Harrow keeper had the final word in 'keeper mistakes by spilling the softest of Hodges headers to trickle over the line. 5-2 to Slough, a flattering score line perhaps, but the 3 points went to the right team, who were inspired by some lovely work by McCleary. Its a pleasure to see him running with the ball, and hopefully his confidence will continue to rub off on the rest of the team.
