Burnham 3-1 Rebels

Burnham 3-1 Rebels
by Nathan on 30/10/2007

A Stanley Mugisha goal wasn't enough to inspire a Slough comeback as the Rebels were deservedly beaten at Burnham.

The Report
Burnham took all three points in the first ever league meeting between the two sides in front of a crowd of 361; Burnham's highest attendance this season.

Both sides had early chances, the first of which came after only a minute with a shot hitting the side-netting.

Slough had a good chance to take an early lead. Abbey Nsubuga's deflected shot went out for a corner and from that corner, Dean Harper's close range effort was blocked on the line.

Assistant player/manager Nick Roddis (pictured right) also had a chance to score for the Rebels, as he beat two defenders but shot tamely into the hands of the goalkeeper.

Poor defending forced Rebels 'keeper Richard Barnard (pictured below left) into making a split-second decision to challenge Adam Durrant in the box. Durrant took this opportunity to lob Barnard for Blaise O'Brein to head home.

From then until half-time Burnham always looked the more likely to score, and had chances to do so whilst restricting Slough to long range efforts; Landy Sakala's 25 yard shot that went horribly wide of the target was the best that the Rebels could offer and it was the home side that took a deserved lead into the half-time break.

Burnham picked up after the restart where they left off in the first; Harper misjudge a header and Blaise O'Brein capitalised by firing into the far left hand corner for 2-0.

Burnham then took control of the game, and No.2 had an excellent chance to extend their lead and put the game well and truly beyond Slough, but he fired over from a very good position.

Slough didn't seriously threaten again until 65 minutes, when Steve Daly (pictured right) rose to meet a free-kick into the box, forcing goalkeeper Jon Beams into a good save diving high to his left.

The Rebels managed to get a goal back following Tom Attrell's excellent run into the box from the left wing. He fired low, forcing the 'keeper into a low save to his right for Stanly Mugisha to bury the rebound.

This seemed to lift Slough who then started to play more as a team, and a further golden opportunity went begging as Abbey Nsubuga fired over having chested the ball down from inside the area.

Michael Murphy (pictured left) wasted another chance. Having been set up down the right from a short corner, he fired high and wide of the goal where a cross would have been a far better option.

However for all the pressure there was always a chance Burnham might bury the game and they did when former Rebel Byron Bubb (pictured right) fired low into the bottom left-hand corner from Miles Norman's cross.

Even the sending off of Chris Owens for Burnham came too late for Slough, whose search for an away continues.

With the defence that was in front of him, he did well to keep the scores down with several fine saves.
