SLOUGH Town suffered a blow in their pursuit of the Southern Premier Division title after a 2-2 draw with Hereford at Arbour Park on Saturday.

The Rebels let a two-goal lead slip in injury time as Hereford rescued a point to remain unbeaten away from home in the league this season.

Alan Meredith is team manager for Slough Town Pan-Disability and had to run the line after referee Paul Johnson suffered an injury four minutes before half-time and could not continue.

When play resumed, a goal from Chris Flood - his 15th of the season - gave Slough a lead at the break, and Ben Harris quickly doubled the advantage on 50 minutes.

Hereford were forced to finish the match with 10-men after an injury to Eliot Richards but were still able to draw level from an improbable position.

Captain Jimmy Oates pulled a goal back three minutes into time added on before Keyon Reffell equalised four minutes later.

The draw in front of 1,561 supporters at Arbour Park, including 600 from Hereford, leaves Slough in sixth position in the table and three points behind the play-off spots.

The Rebels are away to fourth-from-bottom St Ives Town this Saturday (3pm) before Dorchester Town visit Arbour Park next Tuesday (7.45pm).
