The luckless Rebels suffered defeat again, with a 2-1 loss at Bulpit Lane, writes David Tancred.

Hungerford had the first half chance of the game on five minutes through Matt Berry-Hargreaves as the defender could not get a clean connection in the six-yard area with Rhys Forster eventually claiming the ball.

On 7 minutes the game was paused for Alex Fletcher, with the Bath City player having suffered a horrific injury on Tuesday night. Everyone in the stadium clapped for one minute with everyone at Slough keeping Alex in our thoughts.

Former Slough player Dan Roberts, now on loan at the Crusaders, had the first of his chances on 12 minutes, drilling a ball across the area with Lee Togwell clearing the ball away.

The Slough away fans were in fine voice throughout this game with the Rebels searching for an opening goal.

The Rebels got an opening goal on 33 minutes through a Lee Togwell cross after the number 6’s ball caught Simon Grant in the Hungerford goal off-guard. The ball looped from the right hand side on the edge on the eighteen yard area into the top left corner of the goal to give Slough a crucial lead.

Unfortunately for the Rebels the lead didn’t last long with the Crusaders getting an equaliser on 36 through Callum Willmoth after the midfielder was found in the Slough box and struck the ball into the roof of the net.

In the second half Hungerford started on the attack through Dan Roberts on 50 minutes as the striker's header went just wide of Rhys Forster’s goal.

On 59 minutes Joe Dandy produced a superb block to deny Roberts with the block looping towards the Slough goal and Forster tipping the ball over for a corner.

Dan Roberts gave Hungerford the lead on 69 minutes after Rhys Tyler’s cross found him unmarked in the six yard area heading the ball into the bottom corner. Forster got a hand to the ball but it wasn’t enough to keep it out.

On 80 minutes Ryan Jones had a huge opportunity to finish the game off for Hungerford as his low driven strike hit the post and stayed out, thankfully for the Rebels.

Arnold Matshazi almost equalised for Slough on 84 minutes after the forward got on the end of a cross with his header going just wide of the Hungerford goal.

Three minutes into stoppage time, Slough were so close to snatching an equaliser after George Wells delivered a beautiful ball to an unmarked Imran Kayani with the substitute's effort going agonisingly over the bar.

That’s eight games without a win for the Rebels who look to turn their fortunes around in the Berks & Bucks FA Senior Cup at Maidenhead United on Tuesday.
