SLOUGH Town joint-manager Jon Underwood insists the Rebels are not in a bad position in the National League South despite a three-match winless streak, writes Rob Stevens.

Slough have secured just a single point from a possible nine in three consecutive away games, the most recent a 1-1 draw at Hemel Hempstead Town on Tuesday.

And Underwood has warned supporters that the Rebels are not going to win every week, much like they were used to in the Southern Premier Division last season.

He explained to the Observer: "You're going to have ups and downs and cannot get over critical when you have bad weeks, just like you can't get over excited when you have good weeks.

"One point from a possible nine is disappointing but we've had three very difficult away games and people have got to understand that you're not going to win every week in this league.

"We might not be used to that but we're going to have little spells when things don't go for us.

"We're in touch and not in a bad position as the league is very bunched up. We want to stay in touch with the top sides then hope to finish the season well and see where that takes us.

"We need to try and get something on Saturday but that's easier said then done. However, we're quite capable of winning the big games and will take some confidence into the match."

Slough return to Arbour Park for a league match for the first time in five weeks when seventh-placed Concord Rangers visit this Saturday (3pm).

The Rebels could leapfrog their guests into sixth position with a win, but equally a defeat could see them fall into the bottom half of the league table.

Underwood commented: "Concord are in good form and had a brilliant win (3-0) in their local derby against Chelmsford City in midweek. They'll come into the game with massive confidence and are on a good run.

"They signed a lot of players in the summer and we knew they would be in and around the play-offs this season.

"It's been a little while since we last had a home league game but we're looking forward to it because we enjoy playing at Arbour Park."
