Slough fought back from a goal down to claim a deserved 3-1 win over their landlords Windsor in this rearranged fixture from December.

Harris and Carbon had gone close for Slough before Windsor forced Allaway into a good save.

Windsor were reduced to ten men following the dismissal of Jamie Jarvis and it was the ten men who took the lead on the stroke of half time.

Windsor played the ball into the Slough area and a goalmouth scramble ensued. Aiteouakrim was on hand to steer the ball into the net and put the "visitors" into the lead.

A brief team talk from the Rebels at half time as the team came out early ahead of the second half and despite having the better of proceedings, had to wait for their breakthrough. Seedel had gone close with a low drive from just inside the right hand channel of the area and it was the young striker who got the Rebels first of the game.

Receiving the ball on the edge of the area, he turned inside two defenders before hitting a bobbling shot in towards goal. Matt Murphy ran onto it, causing confusion and the ball only got half cleared. Hakki was well placed to convert, but mishit the ball and in amongst the scramble it fell out nicely for Seedel to sidefoot home from a few yards out.

Four minutes later, Slough took the lead. Carbon, in an advanced position on the right passed the ball back to Hakki. The midfielders first time cross went to the back post and Matt Murphy challenged fairly with Windsor keeper Martini, causing him to lose the ball and it trickled into the net.

Windsor had a great opportunity to restore parity to the scoreline almost immediately when they broke through but with just Allaway to beat, could not hit the target. Allaway was again involved and was fortunate to see his clearance rebound wide as a Windsor player managed to block.

Dan Cann had two further chances to extend Slough's lead but Martini did well to keep out both efforts.

Slough did wrap up the win in the final minute though with Murphy's second of the game. Carbon broke into the area and cut the ball back to Mason. His sidefooted effort was saved by the feet of Martini but the ball looped up and Murphy was alert to bundle the ball home from a yard out.
