Slough Town face Chelmsford City at Arbour Park tomorrow in their next National League South fixture, writes Declan Bonsor
After a late winner against Welling on Tuesday night, Slough’s morale will be high going into this match. Ben Harris made sure Slough got straight back to winning ways, scoring with just 16 minutes remaining, which took The Rebels from fifth to fourth.
The visitors currently sit in tenth place and will want to make this their sixth win of the season. Sitting seven points behind Slough, they will be looking to win and go unbeaten in three league games to close the gap, and after a midweek draw with Dulwich Hamlet they will be looking for the extra points.
Going into this game Slough have only lost one of their last 12 league games. After a blip last weekend against Oxford City, the boys bounced back and made it eight wins so far this season; the third highest in the league. Chelmsford meanwhile have won two of their last five games; this mixed form will prove hard to judge for Slough, but The Clarets will make it a real challenge for The Rebels.
Slough have looked great going forward and will want to add to their 25 league goals this season, but with their opponents scoring the same number they will need to be extra solid at the back. Jack Turner has been in top form in recent matches, making a late save to ensure all three points on Tuesday.
Chelmsford’s top goal scorer this season is Shaun Jeffers with six and Sam Higgins is only one behind.
Slough will want to put pressure on Weymouth and Hemel Hempstead, but with Chelmsford not being far away, a win for them could really elevate them up the league – so we can be sure an entertaining game is in prospect!
