SLOUGH Town joint-manager Jon Underwood believes his side will have to fight for every point in order to finish in the play-offs this season.

The Rebels climbed back into the Southern Premier Division play-off spots after a 1-1 draw with Basingstoke Town on Tuesday.

Underwood is happy with the point at Arbour Park and explained that is is not easy to beat mid-table sides at home.

He told the Observer: “It was a decent point and you can’t win every game. We’ve won the last two but sometimes you’ve got to be realistic.

“The sides in and around mid-table are no pushovers and there’s no pressure on them at Arbour Park. It’s a nice place to play and teams enjoy it.

“The pressure is on us to beat them and we have to fight for every point.”

Slough welcome Frome Town to Arbour Park this Saturday (3pm) and Underwood believes his side are due a win against The Robins.

He said: “Frome have been a good side in the last couple of seasons and we’ve not beaten them since we came into the league.

“The results show they’re an up and down side, very good but poor at times, so that’s probably why they are where they are.

“We will know what we’re coming up against because they’ve not changed massively over the years.”

The Rebels want to boost their chances of finishing in the play-offs with the addition of new signings, but Underwood confirmed that nothing will happen before the weekend.

He explained: “There’s nothing definite in place but we’re always looking at a few things. We want to get players signed on dual-registration from other leagues.

“We will use our contacts in the game to get other players signed on before the deadline in a couple of weeks.

“We feel that’s the sensible thing to do in the run-in, given the amount of games we’ve got left to play and the risk of injuries within the squad.”

Slough make the journey to promotion rivals Kings Lynn Town next Tuesday (7.45pm).
