SLOUGH Town recorded a fifth consecutive league victory at Arbour Park after a 4-1 win against Cinderford Town on Saturday.

The win keeps Slough in third place in the Southern Premier Division and 11 points from securing a play-off spot.

Rebels striker Gavin James beat Cinderford keeper Cameron Clarke in the first five minutes but the effort was ruled out for offside. The visitors then cleared the ball off the line after another James shot beat Clarke.

The Cinderford stopper was eventually beaten on 23 minutes when a long cross from Paul Stonehouse was headed in by Warren Harris at the back post.

Slough doubled their lead in the first minute of time added on at the end of the first half as James was first to a Chris Flood flick-on, rounded Clarke and rolled the ball into the net.

Rebels forward Flood then found the net with a header from a James Dobson cross in the 51st minute.

Sean Fraser was unfortunate not to make it four moments later when his shot hit the underside of the crossbar with Clarke beaten.

Cinderford then won a penalty for a handball offence and Jarrad Welch sent on-loan keeper Shaun Rowley the wrong way on 65 minutes.

The visitors were awarded a second penalty following a trip on Welch inside the box. Welch tried to find the same corner but Rowley made a debut penalty save.

Cinderford were made to pay as James bagged his second of the match on 71 minutes, firing past Clarke from six yards.

James was denied a hat-trick as he hit the bar eight minutes from the final whistle.

Slough make the long journey down to seventh-placed Frome Town this Saturday (3pm) before returning to Arbour Park for the visit of Kings Lynn Town on April 1.

Burnham remain bottom of the Hellenic Premier Division table after a 3-2 defeat to league leaders Thame United at The Gore on Saturday.

The Blues gave Thame a fright by taking an early two-goal lead through Jesse Wilson and Josh Jackman.

However, Dan West got a goal back before the interval and Thame won the game after the break with Matt Johnston and Lynton Goss on target.

Burnham host mid-table Royal Wootton Bassett Town this Saturday (3pm).
