Slough fail to impress as they lose the opening match of their 2006/07 league campaign at the hands of Leyton.

The Report
Slough started the season with a disappointing home performance and defeat, on a much improved Stag Meadow surface. Starting the season without Jamie Jarvis and Steve Dell, who both had 1 match suspensions, the Rebels played McCleary at right wingback, and played debutantes Odhiambo and Wallace up front.

Anaclet Odhiambo on the ball

Leyton started slightly the brighter and missed a definite chance early on, shooting well wide when from space, any shot should at least have been on target. Slough’s main efforts in the first half came from either Wallace heading on for the pacy Odhiambo to run onto, and less frequently from McCleary’s rare breaks forward. Odhiambo came closest for Slough in the first half when running on with one of Wallace’s flicks, the ball ran a little slowly on the lush grass and prevented Slough’s new signing from getting a good shot in. Leyton had the better chances in the first half as Slough’s midfield won little, and did nothing with what they did win.

Leyton took up where they left off in the second half, and within a few minutes took the lead through Rio Alderton who picked up a headed clearance in acres of space and slotted the ball easily home with no one within yards of closing him down. Where was the midfield for that one? Leyton’s dominance continued for much of the rest of the match, though towards the end McCleary pushed forward more and showed what a danger he can be. Slough nearly pinched an undeserved equaliser in injury time, when Matty Glynn took a free kick from outside of the box which was precision itself, but the Leyton 'keeper got down to tip it wide. Too little, too late and the faithful were none too impressed.
