SLOUGH Town joint-manager Neil Baker believes the Rebels have shown their resolve with an impressive recent run of results in the National League South, writes Rob Stevens.

The Rebels are unbeaten in their last four league matches, including a 1-0 win at former leaders Woking last weekend, and have climbed into the top-half of the table.

Baker explained Slough are enjoying their first season in the National League but he has warned they cannot get ahead of themselves with six matches still to play.

He told the Observer: “To beat Billericay and Woking, and take a point from Concord Rangers after playing with 10 men for an hour, shows the resolve we’ve got about us.

“It shows we can compete week-in-week-out with anyone, which was our aim at the start of the season.

“We’ve taken points off all the sides in the top eight, apart from Welling who we still have to play again, so that’s pretty impressive in our first season.

“Things can change from one week to the next however and we’re not getting ahead of ourselves at the moment, just enjoying it.”

Slough welcome St Albans City to Arbour Park this Saturday (3pm) before a trip across Berkshire to Hungerford Town on Saturday 6th April.

Baker added: “If we can get a win on Saturday if would push us ahead of St Albans but we will move down if we get beat.”

Fellow joint-manager Jon Underwood commented: “We didn’t play great at St Albans and deserved to get beat on the day. There was not much in it then and it will be very close again.

“It’s another tough game in the league, as they all are, but we’re looking to continue are good run-in.”

The Rebels host St Albans after their defeat at Marlow in the semi-finals of the Berks & Bucks Senior Cup on Tuesday.

Underwood said: “We’ve not won the competition as a club for a long time and we set our sights on it only to be disappointed.

“We’ve had a lot of success in the last few years however so we will not dwell on it for too long and try to finish in as high a position in the league as we can.”
