An entertaining game in which Slough
held there own against highly placed Tonbridge Angels, and were
unlucky to come away without at least a point. The game started
badly for Slough when in the 3rd minute Sloughs defence was torn
apart and Kinch volleyed across the goal to score. Slough's response
was to have a spell of good possession, but this didn't lead to any
Slough did equalise though after good work by Jarvis in the
Tonbridge goalmouth saw his shot blocked allowing Wallace to slot
home the loose ball.
came close with 2 more efforts, Wallace clipping the top of the
crossbar, and a centre that eluded everyone and just bounced past
the far post when it looked like bouncing in. McCleary was having
his best game of the season and Slough looked dangerous in most of
Drake was called on to make some good
saves in the second half, one early on. It was Slough who took the
lead with only 16 minutes remaining when Alexis's shot could only be
deflected by the Tonbridge keeper.
It wasn't long before the Angels
equalised through sub O'Neil who put home a rebounded save. The rest
was predictable, Slough lost their shape, stood still appealing for
a foul, Tonbridge counter attacked and scored leaving Slough looking
So much good work wasted, but if the
performance can be repeated regularly the wins will start to come.
