Slough were soundly beaten by a
resurgent Abingdon United team at Holloways Park.
Despite a fairly even opening 15
minutes, the visitors took the lead and never looked back. Former
Rebel Mark Janes hit the ball past Jamie Jackson after being put
through on goal.
Ten minutes later Mark Janes had
doubled his tally and his sides lead as he shot into the bottom
corner following some non-existent defending.
From then on Slough huffed and puffed
but created very little, whereas the visitors were happy to sit back
and effortlessly absorb what little the Rebels threw at them. The
game continued in this fashion until 10 minutes from time, when some
comedy football from Slough gifted Abingdon their third goal.
Kean's weak and misplaced free-kick went nowhere near his intended
target Chris Fermie (pictured right). Fermie then proceeded to fall
over in his attempt to collect the ball, leaving Luke Holden with a
clear route to goal, which he took by rounding Jackson and slotting
home into an empty net.
There was time however for Mark Janes
to to blaze a free-kick into the car park behind the covered end,
thereby wasting an opportunity to get his hat-trick and heap more
misery upon the Rebels.
