Slough extended their unbeaten run to three games but had to settle for a point in what was an entertaining 1-1 draw at Arbour Park, writes Henry Cheal.

The opening period saw both teams have some decent half-chances to try and break the deadlock, but the first goal of the game didn’t come until five minutes before the end of the first half.

Imran Kayani had the opening chance for Slough inside the first 10 minutes, as he received the ball from a Tyler Goodrham through ball, but his strike was saved by Hawks keeper Ross Worner.

But Havant & Waterlooville had the first real goalscoring opportunity of the half as Alfy Whittingham found himself one-on-one with Jonathan North, but the keeper showed his experience to keep the ball out.

Then just moments later, the Rebels took the lead as Josh Jackman escaped his marker and side-footed the ball home from a corner.

In the second half, Havant & Waterlooville levelled up the encounter thanks to Whittingham scoring inside the 6 yard box. He was unmarked as Andrews picked him out at the back post.

Slough had two big chances to try and steal the three points, with Goodrham coming close on 76 minutes as he was picked out to square the ball home but he scuffed his shot which resulted in the ball going over the bar.

The second effort came in the dying embers of the game but substitute Max Worsfold couldn’t quite find enough power on his shot to lift the ball past Worner, who managed to stick a leg out to keep the game at parity as the game ended level.
