Danny Jordan and Matthew Platt get the goals as the Rebels edge ever closer to safety, despite a controversial late penalty that denies Slough all three points.

The Report
The Rebels donned bright pink shirts in aid of Breast Cancer Research for this vital relegation six-pointer.

The visitors had the better of the opening 45 minutes, with Jamie Jackson forced into a save from Charlie Welch, as well as Alexis Piper wasting several opportunities; first by firing over from a good position before prodding the ball too close to Jackson when played through on goal.

Slough fought back with a couple of half-chances from Byron Bubb (pictured right) and Tyrone Sealney respectively, but the first half belonged to Taunton and the Rebels could count themselves rather lucky that they didn't have an on-form striker, else they could have been out of sight by half-time.

Taunton's Alexis Piper continued his run of effortlessly beating defenders but being unable to hit the target, as he missed another chance just after the restart. After he was substituted, Slough gradually clawed their way back into the match and forced some chances. Danny Jordan almost connected with Steve Sinclair's cross, and Graeme Edwards headed over the crossbar from a free-kick.

The match exploded into life on 75 minutes as the Rebels took the lead, and almost immediacy lost it. First, Danny Jordan (pictured left) got the slightest of touches on Byron Bubb's cross from the left. But two minutes later, Nick McCootie drilled the ball home through a crowded penalty area after the Slough defence failed to clear their lines from a long-ball.

Slough almost snatched all three-points following Matthew Platt's (pictured below right) header from Tyron Sealney's cross from the right, but again failed to hold onto the lead, albeit with little help from the match officials.

With a little over 2 minutes left on the clock, a blatant push on Tyron Sealney went unpunished. Typically, the ball went on the smash Ryan Fenton (who was unable to move out the way from such close range) on the arm for a penalty was awarded, which was subsequently dispatched by Twaine Plummer.

To be fair, on the balance of play a point was the least Taunton deserved, but had it not been for some very poor refereeing, the Rebels would be all but safe by now.
