TWO goals by Steve Cosham in the last six minutes sent Slough Town tumbling to defeat in Tuesday's Isthmian League game but they could have no complaints, because they gave possibly their worst display since Joe Arpino became manager two seasons ago.

Slough, watched by new coach Allen Batsford, scored in the first minute and then tried to maintain a frantic pace which repeatedly resulted in them giving the ball straight to their opponents.

It was boring to watch and for most of the match Slough made no impression at all. Yet Peter Feely had given them the perfect start. With only 50 seconds gone, he raced from the half-way line to fire home a 25 yard drive which took keeper Parsons completely by surprise.

Woking eventually recovered and Porter twice had to pull off fine saves to foil the lively Cosham. When Woking did score it was from a miskick. McGonagle's corner from the right found Micky Preston whose weak shot bounced into the goal, with Underwood failing to clear off the line.

Slough got worse as the game wore on. But surprisingly Mr. Arpino left it until 11 minutes from the end before sending on substitute Ian Cooke for the tiring Terry Reardon, who was having his first match since the death of his father two weeks earlier.

Cooke had not got into the game when Woking went ahead with a beautifully worked goal in the 84th minute. McGonagle, receiving a cross field pass from Alexander, centred from the left to Cosham who chested the ball down before crashing it past Porter.

In a last ditch attack, Parsons deflected a Gane effort onto the woodwork but in the last minute Cosham raced away from Beyer to blast in Woking's third goal.
