SLOUGH Town have returned to the top of the Southern Premier Division table after a 0-0 draw at Kettering Town on Saturday.

The Rebels were last top of the league back in mid-September and the draw at former table-toppers Kettering extends their unbeaten run to eight matches in all competitions.

More than 800 supporters packed into Latimer Park, but strong winds prevented an entertaining match with both teams struggling to create chances.

Slough played against the wind in the first 45 minutes and Kettering had the best opportunity to score when keeper Jack Turner was equal to a shot from Gary Stohrer.

The visitors started well in the second half and Lee Togwell saw a shot held by Kettering stopper Paul White.

Kettering then started to get on top and Turner saved at the feet of Aaron O’Connor and Stohrer fired a free-kick over the crossbar.

Slough joint-manager Jon Underwood told the Observer: “It was extremely windy and games all over the country were effected by it.

“It was a very different game to midweek and we were a little bit more cautious in how we set up. We made sure we didn’t get beaten and it ended up being a really good point.

“Kettering probably shaded it in terms of possession and half-chances, but we did our job on Saturday because it was a tough place to go.

“The win on Tuesday and the win in midweek the week before make it a really good run. We had three games in a week in between our cup matches and we’ve ended up getting seven points, so it’s a good return.”

He continued: “For a club at our level to be in the first round of the FA Cup and still top of the league is a good achievement.

“Plenty of sides that get who far in the cup fall away in the league, but we’ve just kept our consistency by grinding out the results.

“It could get harder if we keep on progressing in the cup competitions, but we’ve got a good squad and proved that in midweek when we were missing a few but still had good players on the bench.

“We’ve got the squad to cope with it. We have just got to keep the momentum going and chalking off the wins, but we’re really pleased at the moment as it’s going ever so well.”

The Rebels now turn their attention to the FA Trophy and a first qualifying round tie away at Southern Division One Central club Kidlington on Saturday (3pm).

SLOUGH Town are offering coach travel for supporters to Gainsborough Trinity in the FA Cup first round proper on Saturday, November 4.

The coaches will depart from St Joseph’s School in Shaggy Calf Lane at 10am.

The fare is £25 for adult members of the Slough Town Supporters Trust and £5 for junior Trust members.

Seats are going quickly so supporters are advised to book as soon as possible in order to avoid disappointment.
