The Report
An uninspiring encounter ended equal, with both goals coming in the opening 4 minutes.

With neither side having so far managed to keep a single clean sheet in any competition this season, goals were all but guaranteed. Slough broke the deadlock after 2 minutes with Yashwa Romeo firing into the net after been set up by Lee Riddell (pictured right).

However, the lead lasted less than a minute as Michaes Herbert bundled the ball home at the far post as the Rebels failed to deal with a free kick on the edge of the area.

The Rebels tried in vain to restore their short-lived lead, with what seemed a certain penalty denied by the referee as James Pritchard (pictured left) was bought down inside the box. Further pressure lead to few chances however, with Lee Riddell's scuffed shot from 30 yards being the closest Slough came to another goal, despite plenty of possession in and around the box. The home side also had their chances, with Michaes Herbert beating the Slough defence only to fire narrowly wide of the far left post, and Abingdon missing a near post header following a poorly defended corner.

The second half began with yet more Slough pressure, with James Pritchard forcing a save from Abingdon 'keeper Warrell, but that was it as far as Slough's chances of scoring were concerned as the Rebels spent much of the remainder of the game defending.

Despite long periods of pressure from the home side, only on a couple of occasions did Abingdon threaten Jamie Jackson in the Slough goal, forcing low saves after beating the defence. Slough did have a half-chance with about 20 minutes remaining, but James Pritchard's poorly hit free-kick hit the wall and was cleared. Matthew Platt (pictured above right) almost took advantage of a poor backpass, but was beaten to the ball by Sam Warrell.

With Abingdon always looking the more likely to snatch the game, they almost did 10 minutes from the end with a free-kick smashing against the crossbar. Minutes later, Abingdon were through on goal again, forcing Jackson (pictured left) into a low save to bail out the static defence, resulting in Jackson going ballistic towards those who were supposed to keep the danger away from him.
