The Report

The Rebels, amid rumours of 7-day approaches for Danny Jordan from Farnborough and John Gray
(pictured right) from Marlow, recovered from a rather poor first half to record their second straight league win.

With Luke Evans beginning his suspension, 39 year-old forward Roy Gumbs had to fill in at centre-back, a task he performed admirably.

Slough were behind after only a quarter-hours play as Matt Williams headed into the far corner after being completely unmarked inside the box.

The visitors nearly doubled their lead shortly afterwards as Reid waltzed through the defence only to curl the ball just wide of the corner.

The Rebels equalised against the run of play with nearly half-an-hour gone, with Danny Jordan (pictured left) laying the ball for debutant Yashwa Romeo to run and excellently finish past the goalkeeper Miller.

This seemed to get Slough's confidence up, although briefly as little over 5 minute later Cirencester had regained their lead as Matt Williams, unmarked inside the box again, put the ball past Jamie Jackson.

Yashwa Romeo headed James Pritchard's (pictured right) free-kick narrowly wide of the post in what was Slough's best chance to equalise before the break. Following the interval however, the game could easily have been put out of Slough's reach as ex-pro Julian Alsop headed against the crossbar.

Danny Jordan had a shot blocked following a corner, before Cirencester 'keeper Miller hacked the ball off the line to prevent what would have been an own-goal from Mintum.

With 20 minutes left, Danny Jordan fired the ball high into the off of the net following Ryan Fenton's cross to equalise for the Rebels as they begun to take control of the game. Further chances from Platt and a Byron Bubb (pictured left) free-kick went before the comeback was completed when Matthew Platt headed powerfully past the 'keeper following a John Gray free-kick.

Having just taken the lead, Cirencester almost immediately pulled themselves back into the game courtesy of a clumsy Roy Gumbs (pictured right) challenge just outside the area, earning the forward-turned-defender a second yellow card and subsequently a red one. Luckily for the Rebels however, the resulting free-kick was a poor one and it flew straight into the wall from where it was cleared.

There were still chances for both sides to snatch late goals, as Haisley fired over the bar for the visitors and Danny Jordan had a shot saved but Slough held on for their first home win of the campaign.

RebelsOnline Man of the Match

Roy Gumbs

Superb in defence, considering he isn't a defender and didn't deserve his red card.
