Another Clean Sheet But Only A Draw

Goalkeeper Frank Parsons answered his critics by keeping his second clean sheet in four days as Slough won a point from Tuesday night's hard-fought battle.

Parsons has been barracked by a section of the Wexham Park fans after one or two unsteady displays this season, but last week promised that the worst was over.

After keeping Bishop's Stortford at bay on Saturday he pulled off two important saves at Hendon to secure an important draw.

In a game that had its moments despite the lack of goals, Slough looked the more polished side and the performance of former Woking player Steve Adams on his debut must have encouraged manager Terry Reardon.

Graham Maskell returned because Dave Yerby was unfit, and did well enough to suggest that he can continue to contest a first-team place.

Slough's best moments came from Dave Russell, whose hooked shot brought a fine save out of the Hendon 'keeper, and Keith White, who saw a strong shot parried and then hit the rebound safely into the keeper's arms.

Pat Morrissey, an outstanding player for Slough when they won the treble last season, was wearing the Hendon colours but was never given a chance to supply the kind of defence splitting passes he specialises in.

But as Reardon acknowledges, Slough still need someone up front to show the imaginative touches that have been lacking since the departure of Eggie James to Bangladesh on business.

James returns next month and that could make it difficult for young Rowan Dodds to establish himself as a regular. Dodds was on the sub's bench on Tuesday.
