The Report
All that separated the two teams were 3 of the worst officials I have ever seen. It seemed as though every time Slough got the ball forward, we were offside even if we were 2 yards onside. The linesman missed a blatant handball inside the Carshalton penalty area and subsequently failed to award a penalty to Slough, and that was after the linesman awarded a penalty nobody seemed to know what for for the visitors first goal.

Anyway, enough of my rant. This was better than Saturday (but then, what couldn't be?) and Slough, although not looking like world beaters, deserved more than they ultimately got, largely due to the aforementioned match officials.

The Rebels started quite brightly but without really creating much. Gareth McCleary was put through down the left wing several times, but to no avail. Leigh Mason was unlucky not to open the scoring as he forced a save from the goalkeeper who forced the ball onto the crossbar.

The visitors never really threatened until 39 minutes when a forward was put through on goal. Daryl Harris managed to put him off as he advanced towards goal, and the ball drifted harmlessly out of play for a goal kick. But the linesman decided to award a penalty as the forward then went down under immense pressure. Omari Coleman put away the penalty.

Barley five minutes later the Robins doubled their lead through Craig Dunas after Slough failed to clear their lines thus allowing Dunas to hammer the ball into the top corner from close range.

Slough tried desperately to get back into the game and were denied a blatant penalty after a goal bound shot was blocked by the arm of a defender.

Just before the half-time whistle blew, Anaclet Odhiambo found himself in possession on the edge of the area. He gave the ball to Leigh Mason, who spent too much time on the ball, thus allowing the goalkeeper to get back into position where he was able to save Mason's shot heading for the near corner.

During the second half, the linesmen further showed their incompetence by officiating the game from the wrong sides of the pitch.

The Rebels put the Carshalton goal under a bit more pressure during the second half, but were thwarted at nearly every attempt by the linesman, who had seemingly decided that because Slough were in possession in the opposing team's half, they must be offside.

Slough eventually had the ball in the net midway through the second half as Anaclet Odhiambo just about managed to scramble the ball over the line whilst under pressure, but the linesman further infuriated the Slough fans by ruling it out for offside.

Slough restricted the amount of attacks the visitors had during the second half. Having said that, they hardly put the Carshalton goal under siege either.

The match ran out its course with Slough becoming increasingly frustrated, but in the end the Rebels had to settle for a 2-0 defeat, their second defeat by that scoreline in as many matches, both of which have been at home against teams at the wrong end of the table.

Lets hope for a bit more luck at Farnborough on Saturday.
