The Report

Slough swept aside basement-side Winchester City thanks to a Matthew Platt brace.

Winchester did at times during the opening half match the Rebels, and Taylor Morgan forced Jamie Jackson into a brilliant save diving low to his right to keep out Morgan's shot, but Dean Harper (pictured right) headed home James Pritchard's corner after 25 minutes and the Rebels never looked back despite looking far from their best against very young and inexperienced opponents.

For most of the first half, Slough dominated possession, defended very well but didn't look like running rampant and it took until 55 minutes for Matthew Platt to double Slough's lead, blasting the ball home from close range following Jagdeep Makh's cross.

This signalled the end of any attacking threat posed by the visitors as from then on the result was never in any doubt. On 70 minutes, Ryan Fenton's shot deflected off Matthew Platt and dribbled over the line. Shortly afterwards, Byron Bubb played Yashwa Romeo (pictured left) through on goal, only for him to be bought down by visiting 'keeper Clint Davies and a penalty awarded. Platt stepped up only to see Davies dive to his left to keep out the penalty.

Slough rounded off a satisfactory performance when Yashwa Romeo headed home Jagdeep Makh's cross with a little over 5 minutes left.
