2 - 1
Merthyr Tydfil
Williams (48, pen)
Steve Whitby
From the kick-off, Slough pressurised the Merthyr Tydfil defence and came close after just three minutes when Mark Fiore's left wing cross caught the visitors defence out before being scrambled away for the first of our ten corners.

After six minutes Slough created another opening when Steve Scott's cross was laid by Mark Foran to Paul McKinnon, who could not prevent his shot from going over.

Sustained first-half pressure was rewarded after twenty minutes A right-wing break by Steve Whitby was followed by an inch-perfect cross to McKinnon who's looping header caught Merthyr's 'keeper Gary Wager flat-footed and we took the lead.

The rest of the half saw us dominate with out adding to the score and we turned around 1-0 up. The second-half was only a couple of minutes old when the Welsh side equalised. Anderson elbowed Merthyr's Coates and to everyone's amazement the referee awarded a penalty, which Williams subsequently converted.

But Slough were not to be denied the three points. With Les Briley encouraging the lads forward, Andy Sayer, McKinnon and Scott all had chances to restore our earlier advantage. Debutante David Greene came on as a substitute for George Friel with twenty minutes remaining.

Slough finally broke through with four minutes left. A tremendous surging run on the right by Whitby was followed by another quality cross, glanced on by McKinnon for the waiting Sayer to slot home his twelfth Conference goal of the season to provide the Rebels with a deserved three points.
