The Report

Despite matching their Division One Midlands opponents for large parts of the game, the weather eventually got the better of the Rebels who bowed out of the League Cup on Tuesday night.

The final 3-0 scoreline was slightly flattering on the home side, who almost went behind but for a goal-line clearance in the first half, but with the game seemingly destined for a goalless draw and extra time, a massive deflection on Aiden Denton's 20 yard effort got the better of Rebels 'keeper Carl Dennison (pictured above left).

Luck just wasn't on Slough's side as, direct from the restart, the Rebels went on the attack and James Pritchard's (pictured right) free-kick took a deflection, only to hit the upright and bounce to safety.

The game was effectively over after Craig Kench doubled Leighton's lead with 25 minutes remaining when he converted Leon Gordon's cross, and an already dull and passive affair ended with a third goal in injury time when Peter Clifford headed home Scott Thomas's cross.

It was one of those nights that, given the weather, anything could have happened but now the Rebels must concentrate on their upcoming trip to Gosport, with only the Berks & Bucks cup trip to Marlow remaining for our Cup interest this season.
