SLOUGH Town have recovered from falling a goal behind to beat Biggleswade Town 2-1 and move up one place to second in the Southern Premier Division table on Saturday.

It is the fourth time in six matches that Slough have trailed, but the victory means The Rebels have now won all of their last six games at Arbour Park.

A Shane Hill goal on 24 minutes gave Biggleswade the lead on Non-League Day, where 760 supporters packed into the stadium - the joint-second highest attendance of the season so far.

Warren Harris then levelled the scores at 1-1 with a header four minutes before the half-time interval.

The home team had to wait until the 80th minute to get ahead but Brad Wadkins came off the bench and secured the points with his fifth goal of the season.

Slough joint-manager Jon Underwood told the Observer: “I'm just delighted to get the win. It was a tough game and we knew it was going to be. They're an experienced side, big and strong.

"We edged it, we were the better side, but in the second half we didn't open them up as much as we would have hoped to.

"The first half was very open and we were wasteful in and around the box. There were times where we could have had a shot but we were trying to be a little too intricate and clever.

"I did worry when they got the goal off the set-piece which was disappointing from a defensive point of view but we've gone behind in the last three matches and won them all which says a lot about the character of the side.

"We need to make sure we stop going behind because we can't keep on having to do that, but it is great character. We were patient in the second half and just kept on going and got the win."

He continued: "I felt that we were causing them problems. We had a lot of situations that we should have made more of but our final ball was not quite there in the final third.

"Then to concede from a real disappointing set piece, from our point of view, was a bit of a kick in the teeth, but the response from the lads was really good.

"We were not phased by them. There is a lot of belief in the team and we just kept on going. We know we always create chance and we got the win we deserved.

"The winner had a bit of luck about it, the way it deflected in, but over the course of the game I thought we were the better side."

With regards to his message to the players at the half-time interval, Underwood said: "We wanted them to move the ball quicker. At times the game was a little flat and we wanted to inject more pace into it.

"When Biggleswade were in front or level, they were quite happy for the game to be a bit scrappy and take the heat of of it. Whereas we wanted more energy and it's sometimes hard to put that into a match when they're playing as they are.

"Biggleswade were solid defensively but the message was to keep on going, be patient and a little more clinical in the final third.

"If we get that chance to shoot, do so rather than try to score the perfect goal."

On the second-half he added: "With 20 minutes to go you always look at it and think what can we change. Manny played really well but we had gone through a spell where we had not created an awful lot and we just needed to offer something different with Brad.

"It was a great bit if skill from Matt to go past a couple of players and slip him in and we just got a little bit of luck with the way the ball looped over the keeper. Brad did really well when he came on. He added a different dimension to us.

"I felt that we were probably the team that attacked more. If you look at the second half for a good chunk of time we were the ones attacking.

"They were quite happy to try to play on the break a little bit and they are always a danger with a pace up top, and they are always good at set-pieces.

"So we were never comfortable at any point, I have got to say that, but I do think we edged it and got the three points we deserved."

Underwood continued. We've always go goals in us. It's important if you go one down that you steady the ship and don't go two behind.

"We want to stop falling behind and it's a lot easier if you get yourself in front in games, especially here. Teams are very happy to sit behind the ball and waste a bit of time, so we need to stop making it so difficult for ourselves.

"But, the character is there and we've got so many options in the squad at the moment. We are able to change things up from the bench as well, so I am really pleased with how things are going at the moment."
