The Report

Slough picked up their first 3 points of the new campaign in an eventful match overshadowed by Luke Evans' (pictured right) 1st half red card.

Evans' saw red after a 16th minute tackle on Jason Burt limping off the field, despite later proven to have sustained worse injuries than the Taunton defender.

Despite this early setback, Slough composed themselves well but didn't threaten much. Matthew Platt's effort that hit a defender and hit the 'keeper in the face before hitting the crossbar being the Rebels closest chance of the first half.

The second half started brightly for Slough, whose attacking options had been bolstered by the introduction of John Gray (pictured left) in place of Craig Roberts at half time. Byron Bubb fired over following Danny Jordan's cross before Matthew Platt opened the scoring, following on from Danny Jordan's effort that was saved.

10-man Slough continued to attack and had further chances, including a John Gray free-kick that fly narrowly wide of the post before Dean Harper converted a penalty after Byron Bubb had been bought down inside the box after an hours play.

Rebel's goalkeeper Jamie Jackson (pictured right) had very little to do but did have to deal with a shot that flew straight at him, with the home side's best chance so far being a header that shot wide of the post. That said, Taunton proceeded to reduce the deficit when Charlie Welch fired a cross past Jackson after John Gray was left exposed down his right flank.

With the home side going for an equaliser, the Rebel's remaining back three of Harper (pictured below left), Fenton and McConigley thwarted their every attempt at the Slough goal.

The Rebels appeared to make the game safe as with 10 minutes remaining Danny Jordan beat four defenders and curled a shot into the top corner for his first competitive Slough goal.

The home side did pull another goal back in injury time to make the score 3-2 after Harper handled the ball inside the box, with Lee Groves making no mistake from the spot despite Jamie Jackson guessing the right way.

Taunton almost got the equalising goal moments before the final whistle, but the ball flew wide of the post following a corner kick and the travelling Slough fans and players alike breathed a collective sigh of relief.
