by Nathan on 08/04/2009

A resurgent Winchester City eventually prove too much for the Rebels, who are now looking over their shoulders at their relegation rivals.

The Report
Winchester City look set to continue their "great escape" after comfortably seeing off Slough.

Jeff Cavey had already forced a good save from Jamie Jackson in the opening minutes before Craig Richards headed the home side in front following a corner on 14 minutes.

Yashwa Romeo narrowly missed the far post and Danny Jordan (pictured right) also wasted a good opportunity to equalise for the Rebels as they responded well to the early setback.

Jamie Jackson had to deny Jones Awiah and James Rowe as the home side looked to double their lead, but it was Steve Sinclair for the Rebels who grabbed the next goal, firing the ball home from inside the box following good work by Danny Jordan.

Youngster Kyle Jeffery almost turned the game on its head minutes later, as his 30-yard long ball almost looped over the head of Chris Tardif, but he successfully recovered to palm the ball onto the crossbar.

Sinclair, a constant thorn in the side of the Winchester defence all afternoon was carried off just before half-time, and so ended Slough's attacking threat.

The opening 15 minutes of the second half belonged to Slough. Danny Jordan and Yashwa Romeo (pictured left) both missed good chances to put the Rebels ahead, missed chances that were to prove costly come the end of the 90 minutes.

Typically, the home side went in front again with their first real attack of the second half, with James Rowe smashed the ball through a penalty-box full of players.

The game was put to bed not long afterwards when Matt Palmer hit the ball past Jackson and low into the far corner.

All that Slough managed in the closing stages of the game were a couple of half-chances, as the Rebels yet again just went to sleep and didn't wake up.
