Rebels 3-2 Windsor & Eton

Rebels do it the hard way
by Nathan on 24/01/2009

Slough edge a passionate local derby against our former landlords and high-flyers Windsor & Eton, despite a late scare where we conceeded two late goals.

The Report

The Rebels ended Windsor's 18-match unbeaten run despite conceding 2 late goals at Holloways Park, whilst simultaneously getting revenge for the thrashing Slough suffered at Stag Meadow in October.

Boosted by the return of Dean Harper and Luke Evans in defence, Slough started brightly and had early chances from Danny Jordan (pictured right) and Matthew Platt. It wasn't all Slough though, the visitors had their chances and if Adam Wallace had connected with a cross, or Martin Williams not fired over from a good position the result would have turned out much differently.

The turning point of the match came after 36 minutes when Paul Coyne was given a straight Red Card for a two-footed lunge at Luke Evans. Minutes later, Yashwa Romeo (pictured left) made the advantage count as his cross was hammered into his own net by Mark Cooper.

It may have been 2-0 at half-time had Matthew Platt made a proper connection with the ball, instead of scuffing it into the arms of a grateful Rob Bullivant, having been set up by Byron Bubb.

Windsor came out for the second-half all guns blazing, and for some time it was backs against the wall for Slough, who had Jamie Jackson to thank for keeping out Steve Butler's header.

Again it was by no means an onslaught, but Matthew Platt (pictured right) doubled the Rebels lead somewhat against the run of play as he turned on the edge of the area and unleashed a shot into the far right corner that perhaps Bullivant could have done a little better with.

Derek Sweetman bought on Chris Fermie for Danny Jordan in an effort to stem increasing Windsor pressure, but the visitors put themselves right back into the game with 5 minutes of normal time remaining when Ryan Parsons smashed a shot home into the bottom left corner of Jamie Jackson's goal.

The Rebels responded superbly however, and after 2 minutes had restored the 2-goal lead courtesy of a Dean Harper penalty after Byron Bubb had been fouled by former Rebel Matt Seedel (pictured left) inside the box.

But the game was still far from finished, Michael Chennels capitalised on the loose ball after a long-range free-kick had resulted in the ball hitting the post to sent it into the roof of the net for 3-2 barely two minutes later.

Slough could still have thrown away their hard-earned win in injury time as Jamie Jackson was again called into action to block Steve Butler's shot, but then final whistle blew - much to the relief of the Rebels players, management and faithful fans.

RebelsOnline Man of the Match

Luke Evans

Like a brick wall in defence. Frustrated Windsor's attacks at every turn. Just shades it over Dean Harper.
