Slough took on another of the leagues fancied sides and put the mauling at Bromley firmly behind them with a hard fought goalless draw against AFC Wimbeldon.

The Dons had themselves come into the game on the back of a 4-0 win over Folkestone. The visitors had three former Rebels in amongst their ranks with Antony Howard, Byron Bubb and Roscoe Dsane taking their place in the starting eleven.

Slough again set themselves up to contain their opposition, as they had done against Margate and Bromley.

Wimbledon had the better of the opening exchanges and Dsane setup Wales for the games opening opportunity, but the Dons midfielder failed to take the opportunity presented to him.

Slough were out to prove that their performance at Bromley had been a one-off and were defending well against many peoples favourites for the title. Gareth McCleary, who had been moved upfront alongside Adam Wallace and a rumoured summer target of Wimbledon, again looked to be the Rebels danger man as his pace and trickery was a constant concern, and the young forward went close for Slough in their best chance of the half whilst Dsane fired over the bar at the other end.

The second half continued in much the same manner as the first. The away side having the majority of the play without really causing any concern to Kieron Drake in the Slough goal thanks to some determined defending alongside some questionable finishing.

Wes Daly and Scott Fitzgerald both went close for Wimbledon but the Rebels dug deep and got themselves a hard earned point and clean sheet.
