Slough lined up for the third home game in the space of five games and saw their third defeat in a row as Hendon left Stag Meadow with all three points, despite Slough having taken the lead.

The first half was an even affair. Ofori saw a strike from outside the box well saved by Parkin as Slough then grew into the ascendency. Michael Murphy looked to follow up his stunning strike against Kingstonian with another firm drive from distance, but King was well placed and was able to hold the ball after diving to his right. King again was brought into action when Matt Murphy tried his luck, but again Slough found the opposing keeper well placed and he was able to make a comfortable save.

Slough nearly took the lead with two minutes of the half left. Carbon crossed in from the right and King misjudged the flight of the ball but unfortunately for Slough it bounced back off the crossbar.

Slough continued their good end to the first half into the start of the second and it was just three minutes old as they took the lead. Forcing a series of corners, Mason's third delivery saw Hendon fail to clear the ball well enough. It was worked back out to Mason and as it fell to Seedel he smacked the ball in off the underside of the bar from twelve yards out.

Slough were on top and looking more likely to score next but with sixty eight minutes gone, Hendon drew themselves level through a former Rebel in Ross Pickett. Rob Courtnage, perhaps fortunate to still be on the pitch after retaliating when challenging Hodges, delivered his corner to the far post where it found an unmarked Pickett. His drive found the gap between Parkin and his defenders on the line.

Hendon were now in control of the match as Slough brought on Steer for Hodges. They took the lead wiht five minutes remaining as John Frendo managed to shoot on the spin, under pressure from Saulsbury, and past Parkin.

A tiring Slough found themselves further behind in injury time as Pickett again was the beneficiary of some lax Slough defending. Mark Burgess fed the ball into the box and from the resulting scramble, Shepherd's attempted clearance struck Pickett and the ball rolled in.
