SLOUGH Town saw their four-match winless streak in the National League South come to an end after a 1-0 victory over Dartford on Saturday, writes Rob Stevens.

The Rebels had not tasted success since the win against leaders Wealdstone on Boxing Day but a single goal from Daniel Roberts was enough to secure all three points at Arbour Park.

It is a first win in 2020 for Slough and sees them move up one place to third position in the table – 10 points behind Wealdstone but with a game in hand on the table-toppers.

The home team appeared to have taken the lead inside the first 12 minutes as Warren Harris headed back across goal and Roberts swept the ball into the net, but he was denied by an offside flag.

Slough supporters jointed together to sing ‘Super Kev McGoldrick’ in the 32nd minute to honour the beloved club physio on the second anniversary of his passing.

The Rebels broke the deadlock when Dartford keeper Alhaji Sesay parried a long range shot from George Wells into the path of Roberts who poached a goal from inside the box on 34 minutes. It is his seventh goal of the season.

Dartford almost equalised in fortuitous circumstances in the second half as Wells headed powerfully from a free-kick but straight into his teammate Matthew Lench and keeper Jack Turner had to be alert to claim the ball.

The visitors were dealt a blow inside the final five minutes when Sanchez Ming – who had already been shown a yellow card – showed his frustration and pushed an assistant referee who had given a throw-in against him. Ming was shown a straight red card by the match referee.

Slough Town make the trip to Braintree Town this Saturday (3pm). The Rebels won the reverse fixture at Arbour Park back in December thanks to a late goal from Lench.

  • SLOUGH Town Ladies recovered from falling behind to draw 2-2 with Abbey Rangers Reserves in Division Three East of the Thames Valley Counties League.

The Rebels goals scorers at Arbour Park were Shannon Daly and Nicole Sandhu with Bethany Anders striking twice for the visitors.

Slough Ladies stand in fourth position in the table ahead of a visit from seventh-placed Guildford Saints this Sunday.
