SLOUGH Town joint-manager Jon Underwood has explained the Rebels want to win the Berks & Bucks Senior Cup this season, writes Rob Stevens.

Slough made progress into the quarter-finals of the competition after a 6-3 win against Chalfont St Peter from the Isthmian League South Central Division on Tuesday.

Goals from Ben Harris, Louie Soares and Manny Williams, plus a Matthew Stevens brace, gave the Rebels a clear lead heading into the break at Arbour Park.

Chalfont pulled a goal back through Charlie Mitchell, before on-loan striker Stevens scored again to compete his hat-trick - taking his tally to 11 goals in 15 matches for Slough.

The lower-league visitors had the final say when both Adam Kirby and Michael Kalu found the back of the net, but it was not enough to keep them in the competition.

Underwood told the Observer: "We were very good in the first-half, both in our attitude and approach. We played some good football, scored some good goals and looked really at it.

"We warned them at half-time about taking their foot off the pedal in the second-half but it happened, so it was a game of two halves really.

"We took our foot off the pedal and were sloppy in the second-half but fair play to Chalfont, they were quite bright going forward and scored some nice goals.

"We were quite disappointed at the end as it took the gloss off all the good things we did in the first-half, but we've scored six goals and gone through.

"It was an important chance for some players to get 90 minutes, which they've not done for a while, but we've picked up a couple of knocks which is disappointing."

Underwood continued: "The competition isn't a huge drain on resources and something we want to win this season.

"We don't have a league cup this season so we want to take this seriously and progress, and we're into the quarter-finals now.

"We won the Surrey Senior Cup with Godalming Town (2012-13) not long after losing a play-off game, so that was a nice end to our season."
