Slough hosted a relegated Kingstonian side who notched just their seventh win of the season as an abject Slough performance saw them throw away a point in injury time.

Both sides were unable to create any real chances of note during the first half and the first real opportunity saw the K's open the scoring. Slough had given the ball away in defence not once, but twice, and Martyn Lee was able to capitalise. His first effort was blocked, but Ian Dickens fed the ball back in and Lee finished high into the net with a volley.

Slough manager Eddie Denton sent his side back out early, no doubt with some stern words ringing in their ears following a well below par first half performance. Parkin had come on to replace Allaway at half time.

Whether the half time words had an effect or not, Slough did manage to draw themselves level through Michael Murphy. Cutting inside from a right central position and about 25 yards out the defender hit a swerving drive which flew into the opposite corner.

Whilst this should have sparked the Rebels on, it was the K's who restored their lead. Kenny Ojukwa was able to run through, easily holding off two Slough tackles, and slotted between Parkin's legs to put Kingstonian two one up.

Slough thought they had rescued a point with five minutes remaining. Carbon received the ball on the right flank. Despite being surrounded by four Kingstonian players he managed to get through them and got to the byline. His attempted cut back was blocked and as the ball fell back to him, he converted through the small gap left at the front post by Hughes.

As much of their performance had deserved though, Slough did not earn a point from the fixture. Thirty seconds into added time saw former Rebel Dave Timothy cross from the right hand side. Asante touched it back to Reid who converted past Parkin on his debut.
