The Report
Slough were held to an entertaining draw to relegated landlords Windsor & Eton on Easter Monday.

Slough got off to a good start and took the lead after only ten minutes when a free-kick was hit straight at goalkeeper Kieron Drake, who fumbled the ball straight to Ian Hodges who slammed the ball straight past him and into the net.

Slough continued to dictate play until the 30th minute, when Dave Warner drew the Royalists level when he bundled the ball into the corner following a cross from the right wing.

That was how it stayed until just before half time, when substitute Glen Harris restored Slough's lead having been put through by Gareth McCleary, shot across the face of goal for the ball to dribble over the line to give the Rebels a half-time lead.

That lead didn't last long, with Adam Wallace smashing the ball home through a crowded penalty area after several previous shots were blocked just after the break.

It took Slough just over ten minutes to take the lead for the 3rd time in the match, when he ran through the Windsor defence and slotted the ball into the far corner for his second goal of the match.

4 minutes later however, Windsor goalkeeper Kieron Drake made up for his earlier fumble. His long goal kick went straight through Clark Master's hands and into the goal to send the Windsor fans into wild celebrations.

Slough had several chances to retake the lead and snatch the points in the final ten minutes of the game, with Gareth McCleary beating Drake down the wing, firing the ball towards the open goal from a tight angle only for it to be blocked by Tilbury.

Michael Alexis also saw his shot from the edge of the area be tipped over the bar by Drake as Slough continued to search for the elusive winner.

It didn't come and so the game ended 3-3. The Rebels will feel frustrated that they gave away the lead 3 times during the game, whereas Windsor will feel pleased that they have restored a bit of local pride having to come from behind 3 times to steal the point.
