The Report
Despite having Leon Woodruffe sent off early on, Slough absorbed all that Folkestone could offer and picked up three valuable points and a step closer to safety in front of Bravo TV cameras who were filming week-long manager Ashley Hames.

Slough dominated the first half and were unlucky not to take the lead when Josias Carbon's looping shot hit the crossbar and rebounded to safety.

17-year-old Charlie Ide gave Slough a deserved lead as he lobbed a through-ball over the advancing 'keeper.

Slough shot themselves in the foot as they looked to defend that lead as Leon Woodruffe stupidly got himself sent off for two bookable offences, both for arguing with the referee.

This prompted Slough into a substitute. Goalscorer Charlie Ide, who was having a good game had to make way for defender Mark Avery to make up for the loss of Woodruffe in defence.

The visitors failed to threaten Clark Masters in the Slough goal despite their recent run of good form, something which made the result all the more impressive.

The Rebels made the points safe when Josias Carbon, having been put through by Gareth McCleary, ran into the area before providing Michael Alexis with a lovely through ball for him to poke home from 5 yards out.

It wasn't all positives for Slough though, with the late injury to goalkeeper Clark Masters giving the Slough management cause for concern.

His replacement Michael Parkin almost immediately gave away Slough's clean sheet after he fumbled from a cross, but frantic defending spared his blushes.

Barely minutes later however, he made up for his mistake by making a good save in what was Folkestone's only real spell of pressure in the final ten minutes.

So journalist Ashley Hames wins his game in charge of the team and Slough's Ryman Premier League status for next season is all but secured.

RebelsOnline Man of the Match

Josias Carbon

Put his recent form behind him, got forward often and was unlucky not to score in the process.
