The Report
A 22-man punch-up towards the end of the game overshadowed an entertaining game from which both sides picked up a valuable point.

Neither side really threatened in the first-half, but Matt Miller (pictured left) squandered a glorious opportunity at the end of the first-half to force a good save from Worthing 'keeper Rikki Banks.

The home side took the lead soon after the break when Joe Keehan squared the ball off for Mark Knee to beat Kieron Drake with a low shot.

Slough didn't give up and within ten minutes and scored an equaliser from a somewhat debatable penalty when Errol Telemaque appeared to trip over his own feet inside the area, for Leigh Mason to slam home the resulting penalty.

The Rebels from Slough turned the game around after substitute Mark Bartley crossed for Errol Telemaque whose shot flew into the top corner.

Slough fans could have been forgiven for thinking that the worst would happen when captain Steve Daly (pictured right) received his marching orders for his second bookable offence but, to Slough's credit, they plugged away and defended solidly (if perhaps desperately), apart from one lapse in concentration where a free-kick from near the half-way line found Ben Andrews totally unmarked to head home for 2-2.

With a little over five minutes left on the clock, it all kicked off.

Goalscorer Errol Telemaque, who had just been caught offside didn't give the ball to keeper Rikki Banks immediately after the decision had been given. Banks then decided to take out his frustration like a schoolboy and shoved him to the floor. Telemaque understandably retaliated and it all started. Every player and both benches wanted in on the action.

When the officials eventually managed to restore order, Worthing substitute Sam Francis, who had only been on the pitch for a few minutes and hadn't had a touch of the ball gained a deserved red for running half the length of the pitch to land a punch to the back of Telemaque's head.

Telemaque also received his marching orders for a second bookable offence amidst all the madness with Mark Bartley (pictured eft)  also shown red for kicking and coach Carl Marsh for his involvement. Quite how the 'keeper Banks wasn't shown red for retaliating, none of the travelling support could work out.

The game finished ten against eight and Slough could think themselves lucky that Worthing failed to take advantage of 2 extra men in the pitch, despite 10 minutes of intense pressure at the end.
