SLOUGH Town striker Ben Harris sees no reason why the Rebels cannot aim for the play-offs in the National League South this season.

Harris, 27, suffered with injuries since joining Slough in December 2017 and was restricted to just 12 appearances as the Rebels won promotion - though he did score six goals including on debut in the 1-1 draw at Chesham United.

He is confident his form and fitness has returned and scored his second goal in pre-season as Slough beat Boreham Wood 3-0 in a friendly match at Arbour Park on Tuesday.

Harris told the Observer: "I was plagued with injuries last season so touch wood I can now spend a lot more time on the pitch and help the team with the wins that we will hopefully get.

"I might not be the best looking player but I'll always put 100 per-cent in and do what's right for the team.

"I am not bothered whether or not people like me, I'm just going to do my job and what I can for the team.

"I haven't really got personal targets and I just want to win. If I score then it's a bonus, but I'm all about the team and if we're winning then everyone is happy.

"I can't see why we shouldn't go for the play-offs. We've just comfortably beaten a National League side in Boreham Wood so there's no stopping us from saying we can't do it in National South."

Slough beat Boreham Wood thanks to first-half goals from Harris, captain Sam Togwell and man-of-the-match James Dobson.

The visitors were reduced to 10-man after the break when David Stephens was shown a straight red card following a clash with Harris, who was cautioned by the match referee.

Harris explained: "The physical side is probably the best part of my game actually.

"I went for a 50-50 and the big lad reacted so that's his fault. It will not put him in a good position for the start to the season and I assume he's going to miss a couple of games now."

The Rebels forward continued: "The management set us a target and we achieved that. We set out exactly what we wanted him to do.

"We knew Boreham Wood were a good outfit and would have more of the ball than us, but we had a gameplan and stuck to our job well. We pressed high and as a unit and it worked very well for us.

"It look like we're scoring for fun at the moment but the most important thing is we're not conceding.

"Last season we conceded a few sloppy goals but it looks like we're cutting them out. It shows that we're heading in the right direction and it's good to be a part of it."
