SLOUGH Town joint-manager Jon Underwood hopes supporters will get behind the Rebels in two huge matches at Arbour Park this week, writes Rob Stevens.

Slough welcome high-flying Woking in the National League South this Saturday (3pm), before an FA Cup first round replay against Sutton United next Tuesday (7.45pm).

Underwood explained it is fantastic to be involved in matches of this nature, and he hopes supporters will rally behind Slough in their numbers.

He told the Observer: It's great to have two games of this size at Arbour Park and I would imagine there will be two big crowds.

"We know a fair bit about Woking having already watched them live this season, plus we've seen a few videos, but they will know us pretty well also.

"They went second in the league table on Wednesday night when coming from behind to win at Gloucester City (4-3), and they had a great win at Torquay United (1-0) in the FA Cup last weekend.

"They find a way to grind out wins and don't get beat much, so we know it will be a tough game.

"It's one you look for when the fixtures first come out because Woking are one of the biggest club around in this area.

"We will try to get the win and get closer to the sides at the top of the table. We want to stay in touch with the likes of Billericay Town and Woking, and to do that we've got to win.

"We will turn up on Saturday and there should be a really good crowd at Arbour Park, so I don't see anything from the second-half performance in midweek being a hangover."

Slough held Sutton United from the National League to a goalless draw in the original FA Cup first round tie at Gander Green Lane on Saturday.

The winners of the midweek replay will be at home in round two to either Gillingham from League One or National League side Hartlepool United.

Underwood commented: "It's a good second round draw and I imagine Sutton will be feeling the same because you always want to be at home.

"We've got a big job to do first but, for whoever progresses, there is a possible television game against a side from the Football League.

"If we beat Sutton and it's another side from the National League then why can't we beat Hartlepool and reach the third round. We would believe we could get there.

"We know Sutton were not at their best on Saturday and are expecting a tough test, but it's the sort of game that we tend to do well in so we can take confidence into it."
