Slough picked up a useful away point at Wealdstone on Friday evening. Despite going behind and being without Shaun Allaway and Steve Daly for the start of the game due to their late arrival, Slough battled well and deserved their point but may feel they could have done better having been up against ten men for the majority of the game.

Saulsbury had to be alert with just over ten minutes on the clock as a long ball was mijudged by Parkin and Saulsbury made a vital block on Beckford to prevent the young striker from opening the scoring.

That clean sheet didn't last long for Slough though as just minutes later, Jolly found a way through. Played in by Shaw, Jolly got in behind the Slough defence and despite pressure from Saulsbury managed to get a shot past Parkin to put the Stones one up.

The lead didn't last for long though as Matt Murphy was again on the scoresheet for Slough. Carbon delivered a dangerous ball in from the right and Murphy's header was cleared off the line by the base of the near post, only to kindly fall back to him and he made no mistake from close range.

The Stones were reduced to ten men with twenty one minutes played as Beckford retaliated to a strong Hodges challenge which also saw the Slough player booked.

Close to half time, Cann broke down the left side of the pitch and put in a cross which was met by Seedel. His volleyed effort cannoned back off the bar and the Stones managed to keep the scores level.

At the start of the second half, Wealdstone, lining up in a changed shape, nearly took the lead. Sub Alexander ran onto a through ball from Jolly but his shot went narrowly wide.

Both sides enjoyed spells of play in the second half and Slough will have been disappointed not to have made their extra man count for more. Miller and Carbon both went close for Slough, but neither effort was on target and Wealdstone held on comfortably for the point.
