The Report
The team have come in for their fair share of criticism over the past few weeks. But after tonight they should be in for their fair share of praise; this was excellent.

Slough controlled the game from start to finish and, apart from a silly defensive mistake just before half time, never really looked like conceding.

Staines started the game on the attack and forced a good save from Kieron Drake early on as he dived to his left to keep out a long range shot.

But from then on Staines didn't threaten as Slough dictated the pace of the game whilst putting pressure on the hosts.

Slough could have opened the scoring midway through the half with former Staines forward Errol Telemaque firing a shot just wide of the far post from the edge of the box.

The Rebels took the lead with around half an hour gone as excellent work from Terry Davies down the left wing set up Mark Bartley of all people to finish off, putting the ball beyond former Rebel Shaun Allaway at the far post.

Staines equalised as 'keeper Kieron Drake fumbled a low shot for a Mark Nwokeju to poke home from 5 yards just before the break.

But Slough didn't have to wait long to retake the lead as, just as on Saturday, Slough scored just after the restart.

Terry Davies found possession on the edge of the area, his route to goal was blocked by a defender but Davies unleashed a fantastic overhead volley with his back to goal to smash the ball into the corner of the net, prompting wild celebrations from both the players and the fans.

Mark Bartley played a surprisingly good game, as he looked dangerous in his more attacking role. He came close with long range shots just missing the far post on more than one occasion.

Tonight also saw the unexpected return of Matt Miller, who came on to replace the rather tired looking Terry Davies with around 10 minutes left.

The final 10 minutes belonged to Staines, but for all their pressure, didn't look like finding what would have been an undeserved equaliser, with a wild shot that nearly hit the pylon behind the ground being the closest they came to a goal.

It is amazing what 2 new players can do for the morale of a team that 3 weeks ago, didn't look like drawing games, let alone winning them convincingly.

Tonight Slough played for each other and as a team and deserved their standing ovation at the end. Long may it continue.
