Slough Town



League Attendance: 246 Steve Daly
Slough earned their first point of the season as they hosted Leyton in their first home game of the 2005/6 season. Slough added Jamie Brooks, on loan from Oxford United, into their squad for the game.

Leyton were well fancied this season for being towards the top of the table and were looking to gain their first win of the season having fallen to defeat on the opening day.

Leyton started the game and tried to catch Michael Parkin out shooting directly from the centre, but the ball fell wide of the Slough goal. Glynn went close with a headed effort which was cleared away by the Slough defence in the games next chance.

The remainder of the half saw Leyton have the better of it, but neither side looked like scoring. A few wayward efforts from Leyton did not trouble Parkin and Slough had a penalty shout turned down.

The second half continued in much the same vain with neither side looking like scoring. Glynn did well to break through from inside his own half and fed the ball to his left to the oncoming Adrian Allen, but the Leyton striker fired wide across goal.

Slough did have another shout for a penalty not given as Jamie Brooks cut inside from the left and hit the ball across goal which appeared to strike a Leyton arm, but nothing was given. The ball did eventually fall to Hodges, but it came awkwardly to him and the defence were able to smother him before clearing for a corner.

Hodges again, proving to be a handful for the away defence, was played through and ran onto a flicked header from Matt Seedel but could only direct his effort wide of the near post.

Slough again went close as Carbon played the ball down the right channel towards the run of Seedel. The forward won his battle with the defender but found Hassell to be alert and he got two strong hands to the ball as Seedel attempted to lift the ball over the keeper. The ball fell to the outside of the area where sub Glen Harris collected it and attempted a chip back into the goal but the ball went narrowly over.

Hodges was again played in down the right by Brooks but again could not find the target from just outside the area.

Leyton did get the ball into the net in the final minutes, but as Glynn rolled the ball over to Bajadi, the striker was deemed to be offside and Slough breathed a sigh of relief and got their first point of the season on the board.
