The Report

Slough managed a draw against struggling Margate at Stag Meadow on Saturday.

Matt Seedel made a rare start in a Slough shirt, hoping to net his first goal since Worthing on the last day of last season, as he replaced Ian Hodges, who was injured in our midweek win over Chesham United in the Berks & Bucks Cup.

There was a stroke of fortune in the visitors opening goal as a backwards header from defender Mark Avery was missed by the oncoming Clark Masters, who could only watch as the ball bounced into the corner of the net.

Slough almost immediately equalised as they gradually began to take control of the game, but Andy Ballard's attempted lob over the advancing goalkeeper went over the bar.

It wasn't long however before Slough did equalise. as the Margate defence failed to clear their lines, Gareth McCleary picked up a lose ball and lobbed over the oncoming goalkeeper.

The Rebels could have gone into the half-time break with a 2-1 lead, but Steve Daly's header from a Glen Harris corner was cleared off the line.

2nd half

Margate were unlucky not to retake the lead just minutes into the second half when shot was deflected off the foot of Steve Daly. Clark Masters had already dived to his right, but luckily for him the ball span wide of the far post.

Slough took the lead for the first time when poor defending allowed Gareth McCleary a free run into the area and a shot over the 'keeper.

The visitors equalised shortly afterwards when Margate forward Brayley fired the ball home from inside a crowded penalty area.

Then came the decisive moment in the match.

Gareth McCleary, chasing a lost cause, appeared to go in with a two-footed tackle on a Margate midfielder. Despite the melee that followed, McCleary was the only one to receive his marching orders.

Even with the man advantage, Margate continued to struggle to create clear cut chances. Slough pressed for the winning goal, but it was the visitors who had the best chance to win the game.

Bertie Brayley rounded Slough goalkeeper Clark Masters, but shot wide with an open goal to aim for.

The game then faded out into a draw, which doesn't really help either side in their battle against the drop.
