Fleet Town 1-2 Slough Town
Slough scorers: Barney (53), Togwell (55)
Date: 30-07-2016 | Competition: Friendly
Second half goals from Lee Barney and Lee Togwell overturned a half-time deficit in Slough's penultimate pre-season friendly at Fleet Town.
The Rebels got off to a poor start, falling behind with less than two minutes on the clock thanks to a goal from Ben Wright, who was able to simply chest the ball home from close range after Dan Williamson had crossed in from the right.
Slough looked threatening through Harrison Gilkes, who showed trickery and fed Charlie Losasso, who went down in the penalty area claiming a foul, but nothing was given.
Nathan Webb set Losasso clear shortly after, but he took the ball too far wide and his shot was comfortably saved.
Fleet striker Simba Mlambo fired over following some hesitant Slough defending, and at the other end Gilkes' side-footed shot was cleared away from the goalmouth.
Gilkes left the pitch in a lot of pain with around 34 minutes played though, with an injury to his right knee sustained after landing awkwardly following a tackle.
Lee Barney fired into the side netting a minute before the interval, but the hosts took their lead into the break.
Dan Rousell and Danilo Cadete were denied by Mark Scott in the opening six minutes of the second half, and Slough made them pay for these missed chances as they equalised on 53 minutes.
Webb intercepted possession and threaded a pass through to Barney, who found the bottom corner with an accomplished finish.
Two minutes later, Slough found themselves in the lead thanks to a long-range goal from summer signing Lee Togwell. He gained possession around 35 yards out before advancing and unleashing a low shot which beat Ryan Pryce.
The home side threatened an equaliser as the game reached its closing stages. Mark Scott saved well from James Scott as he connected with a corner kick, and the ball was scrambled away.
Fleet had claims for a penalty against Mark Scott after some indecision between the Slough stopper and Guy Hollis, but no decision was awarded and the Rebels sealed their second 2-1 win in the space of five days.
