A disallowed goal in the last minute from defender Steve Daly means Slough aren't quite safe just yet.

The Report
A sunny spring afternoon saw Slough visit near rivals, and play-off hopefuls, Staines without injured striker Ian Hodges (pictured right). Staines were on a poor home run, having failed to win at home for several weeks, and given Slough's good away record, this looked as if it could be a close match.

Staines took a 9th minute lead when Mark Nwokeji was upended in the box with Ali Chaaban converting from the penalty spot to record his thirteenth Staines goal in sixteen appearances. The Rebels put in a spell of pressure around the half hour mark. Inspired by McCleary, they forced a series of corners, finally equalising as captain Steve Daly headed in from a narrow angle. Just before half time Mark Nwokeji followed up Clark Master's superb reflex save to head home giving the Swans the lead.

Slough pressed forward looking for the equaliser in the second half, though the Swans always looked dangerous, playing quickly and directly. Too much emphasis was put on Slough's build up play, and all Slough's attacks, pretty looking though some of them were, broke down. Oh for someone other than McCleary to take on players and shoot!! Equally, our idea of a quick free kick is to quickly pass the ball back. Something a tad more direct is overdue. Deep into injury time, Steve Daly (pictured left) was more direct--he handled the ball into the net!! Confusion reigned, but eventually the goal was disallowed.

None of the above really matters in view of June Cousins sad death at the end of the match. Nathan and Ted send their condolences to the Cousins family.
