SLOUGH Town joint-manager Jon Underwood has explained he will concentrate on getting the Rebels set up right rather than their position in the league table, writes Rob Stevens.

Slough changed to a 4-3-3 formation after suffering their heaviest defeat of the season away at the National League South leaders Torquay United two weeks ago.

The switch has paid dividends after a goalless draw with Bath City was backed up with a 1-0 win against fellow promotion chasers Chelmsford City on Saturday.

Slough were completing the league double over Chelmsford at Arbour Park and Underwood believes the two victories are a really good achievement.

He told the Observer: "Chelmsford are a big club in this league and have been for a number of years. They've regularly been in the play-offs with a very experienced manager and players, so to have two 1-0 wins against them is a really good achievement.

"I think Torquay will win the league and both Bath and Chelmsford will end up in the play-offs, so we're absolutely delighted to get four points from the last three matches.

"In Bath and Chelmsford we've played against two play-off contenders and neither has scored against us. That's a massive plus and gives us a lot of confidence going into the next game."

The win means Slough have moved up one place to 10th position in the league table and just three points behind the play-off spots, although Underwood only has eyes on keeping the Rebels competitive on a weekly basis.

He explained: "We said at the start of the season that our aim was to be competitive week-in-week-out and we are. We will try to finish as high as we can and see where that takes us.

"The play-offs are where we want to be as a club. We're a little bit off at the moment but not by a million miles.

"We're not really looking at the table at the moment because it's more about getting us right, and in the past two games we have.

"The table will look after itself. Whether or not we will get closer to the play-offs, we will have to wait and see."

Slough secured their first win in the New Year thanks to a goal in the first-half from Simon Dunn. It is his first goal since the win at Basingstoke Town back in March 2018.

Underwood is delighted for Dunn and explained how the Rebels midfielders have been challenged to score more goals this season.

He said: "Simon has played a lot of football recently and he's a huge player for us, so we're really pleased for him.

"We've said to him, Lee Togwell and Scott Davies that we need more goals from midfield.

"We do need to score more goals from midfield and three in the middle it's a little easier for them. When it's just two they struggle to get forward so much.

"Scott sat back a little more against Chelmsford, but what each of them did was to make brilliant driving runs from midfield and support the front players.

"That's where the goal came from. Simon had that desire to get into the box and he got his toe to the ball."
