SLOUGH Town recorded a first win in six matches in all competitions after a 3-1 victory against East Thurrock United on Saturday.

The Rebels had not managed a win in 90 minutes since beating Chalfont St Peter in the Berks & Bucks Senior Cup over five weeks ago.

Slough broke the deadlock inside two minutes at Arbour Park when Warren Harris evaded his marker and fed Chris Flood, who found the bottom corner.

It is the strikers first goal in eight matches and fifth this season.

East Thurrock equalised as the Rebels failed to deal with a long throw in the 25th minute. Keeper Jack Turner could not reach the ball to punch it and it come off Ryan Scott before going over the line.

The visitors were not on level terms for long however as Slough got a second goal on 30 minutes. James Dobson found Flood totally un-marked with a corner and he looped a header over the keeper and into the net.

Slough introduced striker Dejon Noel-Williams after the break. The 20-year-old striker has joined the club on-loan from League One side Oxford United, where he is highly rated.

The home side secured all three points as substitute Simon Dunn battled for the ball and teed-up Dobson, who found the bottom corner from 25-yards.

The Rebels made it back-to-back wins in the National League South this Christmas following their 3-0 victory away at Wealdstone on Boxing Day.

Slough opened the scoring inside 10 minutes at Grosvenor Vale when Ben Harris was fouled inside the box.

The striker stepped up to take the spot-kick and coolly slotted the ball into the bottom corner for his seventh goal this season.

The visitors extended their advantage just five minutes later as Guy Hollis headed a corner from Scott Davies back across goal and centre back Mark Nisbet was in the right position to finish.

Slough secured all three points eight minutes into the second-half when Hollis headed a Davies corner through a sea of legs and into the back of the net.

It is the central defenders first goal since scoring in the win at Hitchin Town back in March 2017.

The win means Slough have moved up two places to 12th position in the league table and now just three points outside the play-off places.

The Rebels travel to Dulwich Hamlet this Saturday (3pm) before a return to Arbour Park to welcome Wealdstone on New Years Day (Tuesday, 1pm).
