SLOUGH Town joint-manager Jon Underwood believes the rest of the season will be defined on their away record.

The Rebels won 3-0 at Kings Langley on Saturday and Underwood explained Slough must be more resilient and hard to beat on the road.

He told the Observer: “We tried to be solid and more compact at Tiverton but we need to be winning these games now and not draw or lose, so we decided to go on the front foot.

“We are going to have a few of these types of games between now and the end of the season, and it’s the sort of disciplined performance we’re going to need on a number of occasions.

“We sort of collapsed in the second half at Tiverton and that’s unacceptable. We’ve got to be more resilient and hard to beat away from home.

“We’ve got to make ourselves hard to beat and I was really pleased on Saturday. We’ve set a standard for ourselves now and we’ve got to keep on grinding out results because the rest of our season will be defined by our away record.”

Slough return to Arbour Park for the visit of St Neots Town this Saturday (3pm), and Underwood admits the Rebels were poor in a 3-1 defeat at Rowley Park in September.

He said: “St Neots are one of those sides who, on their day can beat anyone, but they’ve also had some mixed results this season which is why they’re in mid-table.

“Hopefully the result on Saturday will set us up for the rest of the season.”
