Hampton, and their manager Alan Devonshire, again got the better of the Rebels with a typical Devonshire team performance. Well drilled, dangerous on the break and hard to break down. Slough competed well but didn't really have the opportunities to test Drake outside of set pieces.

The two sides were cancelling each other out in the early stages of the first half with both sides playing long and plenty of defenders winning headers against their opposite numbers. Matt Murphy was proving to be a useful outlet for Slough's balls forwards, but it was rare they could get onto the second ball.

Slough's best chance of the half came as a long free kick was misjudged by Drake and Murphy came round the back to head goalwards but the ball was superbly cleared off the line for a corner.

The second half continued in much the same manner as the first. Two very evenly matched sides were cancelling out each other all over the pitch and it was going to be decided by an error if either side were going to claim victory from the match.

Unfortunately for Slough, it was Hampton who were able to capitalise. Steer lost the ball and Hampton worked it to Jeffrey who was able to convert past Parkin.

Mason had a good shot which flashed wide of the far post as Slough looked to get back on level terms but as the game wore on, it looked increasingly unlikely. Hampton finished the stronger of the two sides and hit the post with two minutes left.

The two sides will meet again at the end of the month in the Bryco Cup final and Slough will need to find a way to break the hoodoo Devonshire's sides seem to have over the Rebels.
