North Greenford scored at the end of both halves to inflict a rare home defeat on Steve Bateman's side.

Following the high of Saturday's win at St Neots, the Rebels put in a hugely disappointing performance and were deservedly punished by their fourth-from-bottom visitors.

The visitors stifled Slough throughout and had the first chance early on, but a free header six yards out was straight at Warrington.

Ollie Burgess, lively in the first half, set Sonner free down the right, and his fierce cross was met by Murphy, who connected well but could not get his effort on target.

North Greenford broke the deadlock on the stroke of half time as Jamie Diston scored after a corner was half-cleared.

Slough simply struggled to get any sort of rhythm going and created very little, whilst the visitors were happy to sit back and take their time – however they also squandered a couple of presentable chances late on as the Rebels committed players forward.

Burgess had the best chance for Slough as he broke down the right, but his shot was easily saved.

With manager Steve Bateman absent due to a business trip, Fred Cummings made three changes, including the injured Paul Coyne, but still Slough could not muster another clear chance until Dan Burnell headed straight at the North Greenford keeper from six yards.

Late on, North Greenford broke away, but failed to kill the game off despite having a four-on-one attack.

However, the game was eventually put beyond Slough in the last minute when goalkeeper James Warrington conceded a penalty after a quickly-taken free kick was played into the box. Liam Hind stepped up to convert and seal the win.

The result puts Slough back in second place after St Neots were victorious at Rugby Town.
