Despite being the better side during the
opening 20 minutes, the Rebels collapse at half-time and let the
home side run away with a 6-goal win.
Slough did have the ball in the back of
the net courtesy of a Dean Harper header, but it was ruled out for
offside. Yashwa Romeo also hit the crossbar, as well as Matthew
Platt wasting a good opportunity when one-on-one with the
But that was as good as it got, as
from 38 minutes when Yashwa Romeo saw red for retaliation, there was
only one winner.
All six goals came after half-time as
the Rebels fund it difficult with the one-man disadvantage. Chris
Young beat a static Slough defence to fire past Jackson, minutes
before he converted a cross to double his tally and his team's lead.
Dan Forward capitalised on a
loose-ball after Jamie Jackson saved from Marcus Duharty for 3-0,
Ryan King unleashed a shot into the top corner for 4 and shortly
afterwards Mike Taylor took advantage of another loose ball
following yet another Jamie Jackson save for 5.
But the scoring didn't end there;
Marcus Duharty completed Slough's misery ten minutes from time when
he fired a curling shot into the top corner. The second-half
scoreline of 6-0 reflected the balance of play, as the Rebels just
capitulated for the second time in 3 days.
