The Report
The Rebels almost made a great comeback from 3-0 down in Steve Bateman's first match in charge of Slough Town FC.

The match went ahead despite atrocious conditions (heavy wind & rain), ending any hope of good football. Indeed, only one of the 5 goals scored didn't come from a mistake forced by the weather.

The match started fairly evenly, with both sides exchanging pop shots at goal. The opening goal came after half-an-hour when Steve Cowe slotted in from close range past a retreating Jamie Jackson after poor defending allowed him and another forward clean on goal.

Slough had two half-chances to get back into the game, when Tom Attrell (pictured right) beat two defenders down the left wing and crossed for Yashwa Romeo, whose contact forced the ball onto the line, only to be cleared. Chris Fermie also had a shot from the edge of the area fly clean over the bar, assisted by the wind.

However ten minutes after taking the lead, the visitors scored their second as Ricky Allaway's weak backwards header towards Jamie Jackson was intercepted by Steve Cowe who ran and doubled his tally for the night.

With their confidence clearly dashed, Slough struggled on against the wind for the remainder of the half, hoping to regroup at half-time and use the weather to their advantage during the second half. But it was the away side who increased their lead 10 minutes into the second 45, when Jamie Jackson sliced a clearance to Jody Bevan who had an easy task of rounding him and firing into an empty net.

Both sides missed various long-range speculative efforts, with the visitors having at least two shots fly narrowly wide of the post. But it wasn't long until Slough found a way back into the game, courtesy of a misunderstanding between visiting goalkeeper Matt Bath and his defence, which allowed Yashwa Romeo to pop in and slot the ball home.

Slough continued to pressure the Cinderford goal but it took 20 minutes for Danny Jordan to head home from inside the area for their to be a real possibility of a Slough comeback.

With 5 minutes remaining and the deficit reduced to 2 goals, Slough had their tails up and were putting the goal under some real pressure. Several corners and goalmouth scrambles ensued during which Roy Gumbs had a good effort blocked, and Scott Webb (pictured left) mishit his shot narrowly wide from a very good position.

Dean Harper had a 20 yard effort flash across the goal and narrowly miss the far post, but the late pressure was to no avail as Steve Bateman's tenure starts with defeat, the club's 5 in their last 6 matches.
