The Report
An under-par Slough side fell to their sixth league defeat of the season at a rain-soaked Kawns Stadium.

It was the Rebels who had the games opening chance when Eamonn McGonigely's cross/shot flew across the face of goal past the left hand post.

But from then on Slough were on the back foot and have Chris Fermie (pictured right) to thank for a goal-line header to prevent Lee Chudy's shot from opening the scoring. McGonigely was forced to block another shot shortly afterwards and on the counter-attack, top-goalsorer Matthew Platt failed to convert a good chance after being set up by Yashwa Romeo.

Merely minutes into the second half and Rebels defender Ricky Allaway limped off injured following a challenge, and this seemed to shake the Slough defence who promptly went on to concede 2 goals in 5 minutes.

First, Roy Gumbs (pictured left) failed to deal with a right-wing cross allowing Justin Bennett to smash the ball into the top corner. Then, barely 4 minutes later, the ball fell to James Ford on the edge of the box and in the absence of a challenge from a Slough defender, fired the ball into the bottom corner.

The home side could have added to their lead had it not been for a deflection on Lee Chudy's shot, but the Rebels forced themselves a lifeline in the dying minutes as Yashwa Romeo rocketed the ball into the net from 20 yards. With their confidence visibly up, further close range chances from James Pritchard and Yashwa Romeo went begging as the Rebels almost snatched an underserved point, even though it looked seemingly impossible.
