SLOUGH Town returned to winning form in the Southern Premier Division after a 2-0 victory away at Kings Langley on Saturday.

Goals in the first half from captain Mark Nisbet and striker Chris Flood, both players returning from injury, secured all three points for The Rebels at Gaywood Park.

Slough joint-manager Jon Underwood told the Observer: “I was very pleased with the result first and foremost, and how we approached the game really.

“What really impressed me was how we went into the game, with an attacking formation and side. We backed ourselves to go toe-to-toe with Kings Langley.

“We were two goals ahead at half-time and probably had three or four other good chances, plus restricted them to very little. We probably had a good part of the job done so we didn’t need to be open and expansive.

“The second half was a little more difficult, but we shut up shop and made it very difficult for Kings Langley to get back into the match.

“I was delighted with how we played in the second half. Sometimes you’ve just got to make sure you don’t collapse and see the game out.

“Kings Langley changed their shape in the second half and it took us five or 10 minutes to adapt. They didn’t create too many chances but put us under a little pressure. We shut up shop and were relatively comfortable.”

Underwood continued: “Mark Nisbet and Matt Lench were the two best players in the game. Mark gave a great performance on the day. He kept us organised and popped up with the first goal.

“Chris Flood is one our leading goal scorers and played really well. He played up front with Perry Coles and they linked up well together.

“We asked Chris to play a little deeper in the second half and he did a good job for the team, so I’m really pleased.”

Coles made his Slough debut in the match and Underwood was impressed with the striker’s contribution.

The Rebels joint-boss said: “Perry trained twice last week, that was one advantage to having the Biggleswade match postponed, and he fit into the squad really well.

“He worked tirelessly up front and linked up well with the other players. His work rate is phenomenal and he still asked questions of the centre backs when he played up front on his own.

“Perry is a little different to what we’ve already got and that’s what you want as managers, different options.”

The win means Slough remain in sixth position in the league table and one point behind the play-off spots.

The Rebels welcome St Neots Town to Arbour Park this Saturday (3pm), before a trip to Royston Town next Tuesday (7.45pm).

Slough then travel to promotion rivals Weymouth on Match 3.
