Slough saw the return of Hakki after a two and a half month absence with injury and picked up a deserved, and much needed, win over Tooting.

The introduction of Hakki, alongside Alex Haddow, in the seventieth minute added some creativity to the Rebels midfield and arguably spurred them onto victory as two goals in the final ten minutes sealed the win.

Slough started the better of the two sides and had their visitors under pressure for large spells of the first half, but Alan Foster had to be at his best to keep out counter attacks from Tooting who could be considered unfortunate not to have got on the scoresheet in the first half.

Slough did get the ball in the net after half an hour as Boot tapped in from close range, but the linesman flagged for offside and the goal was ruled out.

Whilst both sides continued to have spells of pressure in the second half, neither side looked like scoring and it was largely uneventful until an injury to the referee with fifteen minutes remaining. Following a spell of treatment, he was unable to continue and a local press photographer, Mike Swift, took to the line to fill in.

Slough did finally get themselves in front with seven minutes remaining. Hakki, who had only been on the pitch for thirteen minutes following a spell out with injury, crossed the ball in. Tooting failed to clear the ball properly and Hodges bundled in with his chest from close range.

The win was secured in injury time when Harris ran through into the area and slotted low across the goal.
