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.
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.
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
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
