SLOUGH Town completed a hat-trick of wins in the National League South after a 2-1 victory at Hampton & Richmond Borough on Tuesday.

The Rebels had to recover from falling behind at The Beveree but goals from Ben Harris and George Wells secured all three points to keep the winning run going.

Slough are now unbeaten in five league matches and not tasted defeat since the loss at leaders Wealdstone on New Years Day leaving them in second position and seven points behind the table-toppers.

Hampton broke the deadlock when captain Luke Ruddick squeezed a shot past Rebels keeper Jack Turner – who was making his 150th appearance for the club – and just inside the near post on 16 minutes.

The visitors had two chances to equalise before the break as Warren Harris made himself some space inside the box to get a shot away, but Beavers keeper Dan Lincoln was able to save with his legs.

Slough came closer when Ben Harris headed on a goal kick from Turner for Warren Harris to run onto and get a shot on goal but again, he was denied with a save from Lincoln.

The Rebels eventually got themselves on level terms with a goal seven minutes into the second half. Lee Togwell was fouled just outside the area and Ben Harris arrowed the resulting free kick into the bottom corner. It is his 11th goal of the season and first in four games.

Things got getter for the visitors with a winning goal just four minutes later as Lincoln scuffed a clearance from a Max Worsfold corner and Wells was in the right place to score with an overhead kick – his fourth strike in the campaign.

Slough were gifted the chance to extend the advantage with the award of a penalty but Ben Harris but his spot kick wide in the 57th minute.

Hampton were denied an equalising goal inside the final 15 minutes with a flag for offside and both sides had decent chances in the closing stages.

Rebels substitute Daniel Roberts got on the end of a cross from Worsfold but his effort was straight at Lincoln before Turner pulled off a great save to keep out a shot that was heading for the top corner.

Slough return to Arbour Park for the visit of Oxford City this Saturday (3pm). The Rebels will be out to avenge a 2-1 defeat in the reverse fixture back in October.
