SLOUGH Town saw their three-match unbeaten run in the National League South come to an end after a 1-0 defeat at Havant & Waterlooville on Saturday.

The Rebels had not tasted defeat since the loss at home to Oxford City earlier in the month but a goal from Wes Fogden was the difference between the two sides at Westleigh Park.

Slough made four changes to the side that came from behind to draw at Chelmsford City last weekend. Out went Josh Jackman, George Wells, Ryan Bird and Paul Hodges – who made his debut for the club last weekend.

The quartet to come into the starting line-up were Ben Harris, Warren Harris, Sean Fraser and Mark Nisbet – who returned to the team following a spell on the side-lines through injury.

Slough had the chance to open the scoring in the opening seconds to the match when Roberts broke down the right and Ben Harris had a free header inside the six-yard box but put it over the crossbar.

The Rebels continued to have the better opportunities early on as Roberts got into the box but Havant keeper Ross Worner got down to save his shot before Harris went close again with a header that was just wide.

The home side saw captain Danny Kedwell head straight at Slough stopper Jack Turner before the deadlock was broken. Fogden wriggled his way through and scored with a low shot under Turner on 28 minutes.

There were no more chances in the first half but Slough created a chance four minutes into the second period as Matthew Lench made room for a shot but Worner made the save.

Havant came closest to scoring in a relatively uneventful second half when hitting the post with the rebound going over the crossbar in the final minute of normal time.

The defeat means Slough have dropped two places to fourth position in the league table but just two points behind Bath City in second place.

The Rebels have their third away match in a row when travelling to sixth-in-the-table Dorking Wanderers this Saturday (3pm). Slough will be looking to reverse the 1-0 defeat suffered at Arbour Park on the opening day of the season.
