Glen Harris

Rebels 1-2 Uxbridge
by Nathan on 11/10/2008

The return of Glen Harris to the Rebels fold fails to inspire a recovery after James Pritchard's early opener was cancelled out by 2 quick-fire Uxbridge goals.

The Report

Uxbridge picked up their first away win of the season by inflicting upon the Rebels our first home defeat of the campaign.

Without the defensive prescence of Roy Gumbs or Luke Evans, a makeshift Rebels defence were always going to be up against it against a strong physical Uxbridge side.

It was however Slough who took only 9 minutes to open the scoring when James Pritchard, formerly of Uxbridge, was put through on goal, taking the ball away from goalkeeper Paul McCarthy before rounding him and slotting home into an empty net.

However, within 7 minutes the tables had been completely turned with 2 quick fire Uxbridge goals; the first of which came about when an unmarked Dave Lawrence fired home from amidst a totally confused Slough defence, before an unmarked Lee Tunnell headed home a cross from the left wing shortly afterwards.

For the remaining 30 minutes of the half, Slough huffed and puffed to no avail, while the visitors wasted chance after chance to increase their lead, being denied by both desperate defending and the woodwork. There were several goalmouth scrambles where the ball could have gone to anyone or gone anywhere, and Slough couldn't have complained had Uxbridge gone into half time 4 or 5-1 up.

The second half bought a slight improvement but any hopes of a Slough comeback were all but dashed when Rebels defender Dean Harper (pictured left) received a straight red card for elbowing Mark Nicholls in the face, meaning yet more defensive headaches for Rebels manager Derek Sweetman to prepare for.

The Rebels did put the Uxbridge goal under its first real spell of pressure for the last 15 minutes following the introduction of Tom Attrell and the return of Glen Harris, but failed to force the 'keeper into any meaningful saves, with Lee Riddell's 20 yard effort that caused the 'keeper no trouble being the closest Slough came to what would have been an ultimately undeserved equaliser.
