Slough Town battled hard, but again didn't have anything to show for their efforts as a solitary goal from Davis Haule was enough to earn the three points for Hendon and ease their relegation worries.

Terry Davies had gone close from a free kick which took a deflection off the wall and with Richard Wilmot stranded, went agonisingly wide as Slough made a bright start.

Hendon grew into the game and took control but could not find a way into the Rebels goal as some poor finishing and good defending kept them at bay. Belal Aiteouakrim had three good chances to open the scoring, but failed to trouble Jamie Jackson with any of the chances presented to him. Michael Donovan did well to dispossess Brian Haule after Jamie Busby had nicked the ball from Steve Daly.

Hendon opened the scoring with ten minutes of the first half remaining. Chris Robinson progressed down the right win and cut inside. His shot was deflected for a corner. Lee O'Leary floated the ball in, Jazz Ross flicked it on and Davis Haule got a touch to get it into the top corner despite the best effort of Jackson.

Donovan again put in an inch perfect tackle to deny Brian Haule as the half came to a close.

Slough came out with a renenwed vigour at the start of the second half and took the game to their opponents. George Moleski tested Wilmot with a shot from outside the area and the ball was hastily cleared as Steve Hale followed up on the rebound.

Slough had to play out the final fifteen minutes with ten men as the referee dismissed Jon Mills for the apparent use of an elbow with the defender called over just as Slough were about to take an attacking free kick.

Slough continued to pile on the pressure on a makeshift Hendon backline but as has been the story so often this season, especially at home, Slough just could not find a way through and get the ball into the net. Despite the late pressure, Hendon were able to hold on and earned three valuable points in their fight against relegation.
