The Report

Slough visited the sun bathed Andover stadium looking for a result that would confirm that their recent results were no fluke. Andover started the brightest of the two sides, but that did not last long as Slough came more and more into the game, dominating after the first 15 minutes, playing attractive attacking football. Romeo, Jordan and Platt combined on several occasions to threaten the home goal, but the luck seemed to be against Slough with Riddell and Romeo both hitting the woodwork, and the Andover defence clearing off the line.

As half time approached, it looked as if Slough might go unrewarded for some of the best football they have played over the last few seasons, but in the 38th minute, Hook, the home keeper, spilled an innocuous shot and Romeo collected the ball, rounded the despairing Hook, and shot home from a narrow angle. Andover's defence self destructed a minute later, loosing the ball to Jordan at the edge of the box. He unselfishly squared the ball to Platt who slotted home.

With Slough playing so well, it seemed as if it might be game over, but minutes later Andover struck back with 3 or 4 passes across the front of goal allowing an unmarked Barron to shoot into the corner of the net and reduce the deficit.

The second half was much harder work for Slough, as Andover dominated, and Slough's game lost its edge. The defence stuck to its job, with Gumbs, Fenton and Harper all putting in good performances. While Andover dominated, and Jackson put in two good saves, Slough's defence held out, often under pressure, but never ragged.

3 more points, a good performance and what will no doubt be the last hot sunny game of the year sent the Rebel's supporters home happy, but wondering why the first half performance could not be repeated. On a more general note, there seems to be a good team spirit at the moment.

RebelsOnline Man of the Match

Roy Gumbs

Has been a revelation in defence since Evans was suspended. Seems to enjoy the role as well. The only worry is that they are both out for the next match.
