SLOUGH Town made it back-to-back wins in National League South this season after a 2-1 victory against Weston-super-Mare on Tuesday.

The Rebels recorded their first win last weekend and backed that up with a come-from-behind victory at Arbour Park to move up to eighth position in the league table.

Slough were unfortunate not to take the lead when a Guy Hollis shot from close range was cleared by a recovering defender inside his own six-yard box.

Weston broke the deadlock as Jarrad Welch struck a right-foot shot from 25-yards that swerved before passing keeper Jack Turner in the 44th minute.

The Rebels could have equalised when a screaming 30-yard shot from James Dobson hit the inside of the far post before bouncing to safety.

The equalising goal eventually came as substitute Chris Flood threw himself at a cross from the left wing and the ball crept in off the far post on 78 minutes.

Slough completed their comeback when substitute Perry Coles made space for a shot on the edge of the box and fired low and hard into the far corner in the 83rd minute.

Slough Town joint-manager Jon Underwood told the Observer: “I’m delighted with the win but it was quite a stressful game if I’m honest. It’s never dull here at Arbour Park.

“In the first half, it was probably as poor as we’ve played here in a long time, we just couldn’t get going.

“We were going too long and didn’t pass it well enough whereas Weston passed it very well, which we knew they would.

“They like to play it very short and pass through midfield, and they showed a lot more composure and quality than we did in the first half.

“Having said that we had the best two chances and thought we would go into half-time at 0-0, but then there was a bolt out of the blue from Jarrad, who is a very good player, which obviously really shock us.

“On the balance of chances I do not think we did deserve to be behind but Weston didn’t hurt us.

“They passed the ball better than us, if you look at the whole game, I don’t remember them creating another chance apart from the goal they scored, which was a shot from outside the box.

“Weston put a few dangerous balls across the box but they didn’t open us up and create chances, whereas I felt we did.”

He continued: “There were a few harsh words said at half-time because we felt we had dropped well below our normal stands here.

“I was very disappointed with us and we asked for a reaction in the second-half.

“We have been pleased with the first three performances, and probably deserved an extra point or two more on what we’ve got to date.

"I don't know really know what to put it down to other than it happens in football and you can't be on it in every game.

"If we had got in at 0-0 we would probably have been quite happy with that. Going a goal down gave us an uphill battle in the second-half, but I thought we responded really well and showed a lot of courage."

Underwood added: "We asked them to be a bit more brave and get on the ball and pass it, rather than take the easy option of going direct, which we did in the first-half.

"We had a great chance at the beginning of the half when Ben shot over. Warren Harris had a chance and we hit the post through James Dobson, so you start to think it's not going to happen for us.

"To the boys' credit, we just kept on plugging away and as it happens the two that came off the bench got the goals. We just wanted to freshen us up and they came on and made a difference.

"Chris did really well to get across his marker and it was a good cross from James. We've seen that so many times, he whips the ball around the back of the defence, and Chris read it and got his head to it.

"Full credit to Perry for his finish. He hasn't had a lot of opportunities so far this season for one or two reasons between us and him.

"He has had to be a bit patient and he took that frustration out with the left-foot finish. It was a fantastic finish and he nearly got another one as well.

"He and Chris were both bright when they came on, so it just shows the importance of the squad.

"You look at the strength of our bench and we were able to bring on people that made a difference.

"Lee Togwell came on and gave us that experience and assurance in midfield, and the front two played a huge part."
