Slough Town's promotion hopes slipped even further away last night as they could only manage a draw against bottom of the League Hertford Town.

Hertford had the first chance of the game, a good run from Leggatt saw his effort going just wide of the mark. Dean Palmers superb run from the home goal and pass to Tony Boot saw his shot hit the post and Sammy Winston could do no better with the rebound than to put it out for a goal kick.

Hertford opened the scoring on 11 minutes, Zepherin confused from the slick attack that saw James Taylor put the visitors ahead.

Slough replied minutes later, Byron Bubb's strike hit the post and Tony Boot was present for the tap in from the rebound. An even quicker turn around saw Owen Beadle put Hertford ahead once more on 22 minutes, a Steve Daly slice fell to Beadle's feet for his well struck goal.

Beadle could have furthered the lead just minutes later, another Daly mistake saw his shot well saved by the outstretched Zepherin.

Slough's defence proved negative straight after the break, three mess ups in a row could have seen the game out of reach but luckily Zepherin was on hand to stop all three, despite two chances were from his sliced clearances.

Sammy Winston created an ideal opportunity on the 52nd minute, his cross-crept passed an open goal and somehow Tony Boot did not reach it before the ball rolled out of play.

Slough's equaliser came moments later, a misjudged dive by Chris Fitkin in the Visitors goal sent Winston tumbling, Boot was on hand to slip the ball past Fitkin from the resulting Penalty.

Slough seemed to step off the pace a little after that, Hertford had two major chances caused by more defensive mix ups but could not find the back of the net.

Christian Metcalfe's great run down the left saw his cross creep past another open goal, yet Tony Boot seemed to stop and watch it roll out of play again, just like earlier.

Hertford had the last chance of the game, Ricky Browne, somehow finding himself in the visitor's area made no attempt of running back to help in defence, but once again Dom saved another defensive mishap.

Hertford were unlucky not to gain all three points from the game, which saw a halfhearted effort from all Slough players. The restlessness within the crowd was obvious in the final five minutes as calls for Browne to resign echoed throughout with more calls for the under fire managers head appearing with each week.
