Slough's star winger Jon Sissons was carried off the field in agony at Whaddon Road on Tuesday night leaving the Rebels to slump to a 2-0 defeat against GM Vauxhall Conference strugglers Cheltenham. Sissons, who lives in Cheltenham, was rushed to a nearby hospital with internal bleeding.

But his departure after half an hour of play turned Slough's fortunes, and they crumbled under pressure from their lowly opposition. Rebel coach Micky Walsh said: "It was a really disappointing match.Looking back on it now, we should have made the most of our early chances, because we lost control of e the game after half an hour. In the opening period we could have been 6-4 ahead had the chances gone in, but when the settled team was disrupted we lost it. The rhythm just went."

Cheltenham took the lead 15 minutes into the second half. A cross from the right was knocked out to the edge of the box and volleyed past Trevor Bunting. After the first goal, Cheltenham played with renewed confidence, their performance often belying their bottom place in the table.

Then 25 minutes into the half they wrapped up victory when Bunting came out to take a through ball, and it rolled in behind him. The victory was enough to take Cheltenham off the floor of the Conference table. The Rebels will have to spruce up their away record in the New Year. It shows only one victory from 10 starts and a goal tally of just eight.
