The Report
A poor first-half ultimately cost the Rebels as they fell to another defeat.

Cirencester's Carl Brown opened the scoring after only 10 seconds when he ran forward from kick-off and unleashed a shot past the outstretched hand of Jamie Jackson.

With their confidence clearly dashed, Slough were second to almost every ball and were hoofing away aimless clearances at every possible opportunity. The departure of captain James Pritchard during the week was clearly felt as there was little to link up the defence and the forward partnership of Matthew Platt (pictured left) and Yashwa Romeo, with both being forced almost into defence in order to see any of the ball. New signing Scott Webb, being perhaps the shortest player on the pitch was unsuited to his initial role as centre-back.

Poor defending allowed Davies to dance through on goal and place the ball into the bottom left corner before Slough started to play some football. Yashwa Romeo was put through on goal, he set up Matthew Platt who saw his shot well saved. Jagdeep Makh went on a mazy run through the centre of the park, but with the absence of any support, lost the ball.

That was about it as far as Slough's attacking threat during the first half. Although the Rebels were playing against the wind, the slope was on our side for the first half yet Slough were clearly outplayed for much of the opening 45 minutes.

This changed for the second half however, as the Rebels sought to climb up the mountain they themselves had created. With the wind now on their side, Slough applied some serious pressure.

10 minutes into the second half, Yashwa Romeo though he had pulled one back for Slough, but his bundled shot through a crowd full of players was ruled out for offside.

Ricky Allaway sliced his shot over, whilst Danny Jordan (pictured right) saw his shot collide with the crossbar for the second time in as many games before Rory Smith headed home Laurence Brown's free-kick on 70 minutes to put Slough right back into the match.

Minutes later, Byron Bubb was put through on goal but wasted his chance to equalise by firing his shot well over. Barely 5 minutes later however, Cirencester's two-goal lead was restored against the run of play when Scott Griffin fired into the far corner from the right wing.

Slough's heads noticeably dropped after this and the Rebels never looked like getting back into the game from that point. Byron Bubb wasted a free-kick from a good position and Laurence Brown (pictured left) was unlucky with a close range header, but it came as no surprise when Matt Williams ran past the Slough defence to guide the ball past Jamie Jackson and into the corner off the post for 4-1 in injury time.
