SLOUGH Town FC have recalled striker Dan Roberts from Windsor FC.

Roberts has been in scintillating form on loan for Hellenic League Premier Division side Windsor, with an incredible 31 goals in 38 games.

But the Rebels are desperate to strengthen up front after Ben Harris was ruled out for the rest of the season with knee ligament damage.

Slough had several targets in mind, but bosses Neil Baker and Jon Underwood were unable to do a deal and will now hand an opportunity to 20-year-old hot-shot Roberts, who is set to start in tomorrow’s home fixture against Hemel Hempstead (3pm).

And Baker is confident Roberts can make the step up to National League South.

“Dan will be with us on Saturday,” said Baker. It’s very much a loose agreement with Windsor and we feel it’s right for Dan to make the step up now.

“He is a natural goalscorer, he’s lively and has pace. He’s got something about him and we may have unearthed a serious talent. We will look at him between now and the end of the season.”

He added: “There is no hiding the fact we aren’t scoring enough goals and it is very difficult to do anything on that.

"We are not going up or down this season, so we won’t throw silly money at it.

“We’re in a comfortable position in the table and will be looking to recruit in the summer, while remaining competitive in the division by trying to win as many games as we can.”

Slough’s 2-0 defeat at Bath City last weekend means they are without a win in seven matches going into Saturday’s home clash with Hemel at Arbour Park.

“We had a good 20 minute spell before they scored and should have had a penalty for handball when 1-0 down,” stated Baker.

“But Bath City are a good side and deserved to win, there is no disgrace in that.”
