SLOUGH Town extended their unbeaten run at home in the National League South to 12 matches after a 1-1 draw with Eastbourne Borough on Saturday, writes Rob Stevens.

The Rebels suffered defeat to Dorking Wanderers at Arbour Park on the opening day of the league season back in August, but they have not been beaten at home in the division since with eight wins and four draws.

The home side took the lead with an incredible goal from Scott Davies – his first ever goal in 74 appearances for the club.

The midfielder spotted Eastbourne keeper Franco Ravizzoli off his line and, from the edge of the centre circle in the Slough half, fired into the back of the net after 26 minutes.

Eastbourne were unfortunate not to equalise in the final minute of the first half as a shot from Charlie Walker hit the inside of the post before the ball went clear.

The visitors levelled the scores when captain Kane Wills ran down the right-hand side and fired a shot into the bottom corner in the 57th minute.

The Rebels had the best chance to win the game in the last 15 minutes. Warren Harris made room to get a shot away to the far post, but it was inches wide and just past Matthew Lench on the way through.

Slough Observer:

PHOTO: Slough Town joint manager Neil Baker was frustrated to secure only a point, but he suggested it was a fair result.

Slough made big appeals for a penalty kick and a handball offence inside the final three minutes of normal time, but nothing was given and the ball was cleared from the box.

Rebels joint-manager posted a tweet that read: “Frustrating to only get a point! Not sure we deserved any more though! Has been a tough 10 days with four games and we were bare bones with injury and illness! Sometimes people don’t see exactly what you have to contend with behind the scenes, and today was one of those days!”

The draw means Slough move up one place to fourth position in the league table ahead of a trip to sixth-from-bottom Billericay Town this Saturday (3pm).
