The Report
The Rebels edged ever closer to safety with these hard-earned three points. Despite the thrashing Slough suffered on Thursday, the team responded excellently and more than deserved the win for sheer effort and constant fight, something that was definitely lacking during both games midweek.

Jamie Jackson (pictured right) was called into action several times early on however, and it was down to his quick reaction-save to prevent Josh Jefferies that the visitors didn't take the lead.

Slough's first real chance came after Steve Sinclair set up Matthew Platt (pictured below left) to force a good save form Kyle Philips at the near post, with Platt also firing straight at the 'keeper from the following corner. Jamie Jackson was alert yet again to produce a double-save from Rob Claridge as the game hung in the balance.

The game quietened down during the second half with only a few half-chances for either side, but the decisive moment came with 15 minutes remaining when Yashwa Romeo beat Kyle Philips to the ball some 25 yards from goal to lob into an empty net.

Romeo nearly doubled the lead minutes later, but Philips saved low at the neat post. Tom Knighton missed for the visitors, and the Rebels also had to deal with a dangerous free-kick in injury time but in the end it was a deserved victory for Slough.
