The Report

Quite a decent game for an end of season match. With the Swifts looking for home advantage in the play offs, and little in the match for Slough, I was expecting a one sided match. Far from it, as Slough gave at least as good as they got.

Slough started brightly, forcing a number of corners. McCleary was back on form and nearly put Slough ahead inside 15 minutes with a chip that hit the crossbar. Heybridge countered and Masters in his last game for Slough was forced to make some good saves.

Heybridge took the lead after 41 minutes with an accurate drive to finish off when Masters had to palm out a fierce shot. Half time 0-1.

The second half saw both sides playing attacking football, McCleary being back to form and causing the Swifts to double mark him. Heybridge should have doubled their lead when awarded a penalty in the 60th minute, but Slough 'keeper Masters made a good save from the prolific Jolly. Not long afterwards Slough equalised with a deserved goal from McCleary.

The match seemed to be heading for a draw when after 88 minutes Jolly (who else, he always scores against us) scored with an accurate shot right into the corner of the net. Steve Daly's 300th match for Slough deserved better than a defeat, but it wasn't to be. Here's to next season at....?
