The Report

Slough battled their way to a 1-1 draw with Hillingdon Borough in the FA Trophy on Saturday, whilst simultaneously going 2 games without defeat for the first time since the beginning of April.

Slough began the game brightly, forcing goalkeeper Matt Davies into a spectacular early save to concede a corner. But then the visitors took control, and had several chances to take the lead. Poor defending allowed forwards clean runs on goal, and either poor shooting or excellent goalkeeping from Richard Barnard (pictured right) kept us in the game.

Barnard produced a brilliant double-save from Dave Lawrence and Max Howell saw his shot smack against post, before Slough got themselves into gear and gradually began to come back into the game.

Lee Charles (pictured left), excellently set-up by the usual dangerous Terry Davies lobbed the goalkeeper, but saw the ball dip over the upright.

It could be argued that Slough took the lead against the run of play, but Terry Davies, set up by Tom Attrel (whom himself was bought down in the box) was tripped over by Max Howell in the Hillingdon area. Davies stepped up and smashed home his 6th competitive goal of the season.

Taking the lead seemed to wake Slough up. As confidence rose, so did the amount of possession and number of attacks.

After the break, Slough had their backs right up against the wall in an attempt to defend the lead. Resorting to attacks on the break, Hillingdon began to pressurise and dominate and, had they had their shooting boots on, could have been well out of sight.

The visitors continues to miss guilt-edged chances, as Leon Nelson, one-on-one with Richard Barnard put his attempt into the trees behind the goal, and Barnard again saved excellently from Sam Byfield.

Hillingdon eventually got their just reward as Sam Byfield unleashed a shot just inside the far post and well out of Barnard's reach for the equaliser.

Again Slough had to work hard to get back into the game, with youngster Tom Attrel causing the Hillingdon defence all sorts of trouble, so much in fact that the Hillingdon no.2 (Gavin Brown) resorted to shoving Attrell into the stone wall that surround the pitch in an attempt to win the ball (which was going out of play anyway). The referee decided to ignore this "assault", but booked Christian Metcalfe (pictured right) in the melee that followed.

Lee Charles, set up by Terry Davies (pictured left), wasted a golden chance late-on to put Slough ahead, but his effort was well-saved by Matt Davies in the Hillingdon goal.

Their was time however for the visitors to miss another golden opportunity, but Dave Lawrence fired wide when it was really easier to score.
