Fireworks Night came early for the Rebels as they were turned out by a fiery Kettering attack.

With Slough supporters arriving 25 minutes into the game with the Rebels already two-goals down, due to an hour and a half delay on the M1, it was a disappointing result and evening for all connected with the Club.

Paul Maxwell came in for the injured Darren Anderson and new boy Mark Fiore made his debut as a 65th minute substitute for Neal Stanley.

The first chance of the match came after only four minutes and fell to Kettering, with Hill's shot being blocked.

The Rockingham Road side took the lead after ten minutes. Their first corner of the match was part cleared, the ball was lifted back in the Slough goalmouth. Missed by Bunting, the ball was mishit into the net by Maxwell, though Kettering's Riley was credited with the goal.

Paul McKinnon missed an opportunity to equalise, before Kettering moved further ahead on 33 minutes. A half-clearance fell to Hill on the edge of the Slough area, from where he drove his low shot past Bunting into the bottom right-hand corner.

Four minutes after the break, Slough had a goal disallowed. Friel and Pluckrose combined well to release Hazel, who lobbed the advancing keeper, but the goal was ruled out for offside.

Kettering made it 3-0 after 52 minutes. Woods crossed from the left, Stebbing touched the ball across the Slough goalmouth before it hit the post and spun behind Bunting.

Thereafter our attacks were limited and the Slough defence appeared flat-footed when Kettering added their fourth. Bunting did well to save, but the ball fell loose to Hill who stabbed the ball home from close-range.

Kettering added their fifth with two minutes left. A free-kick from Nicol was slotted home by Riley from two yards out. Slough slipped to third In the table
