Luke Evans
Slough Town recorded their first clean sheet of the season at Larges Lane but were unable to break the deadlock at the other end and racked up a third successive league draw.

Luke Evans made a welcome return to the side in a game which also saw a debut for Jagdeep Makh at right wing-back.

It was a game of few chances, but Bracknell will feel they should have taken one of their opportunities to win the game.

The first effort of the game came from Matthew Platt, but his lob fell on to the roof of the net from outside the area.

The hosts went agonisingly close to opening the scoring five minutes later as Nathan Jack got in down the right, but his shot from the right side of the penalty area flashed across Jackson and cannoned back off the far post.

Bracknell broke forward again and a Sean Grant cross from the right causes a bit of panic in the Slough penalty area, but Luke Evans was on hand to put in a vital clearance at the near post.

Midway through the first half, Bracknell goalkeeper Max Aneke found himself in a bit of trouble as he took out Matthew Platt just outside the box. Platt appeared to suffer a blow to the head as he raced through but Aneke was only cautioned for his part in the incident. The resulting free kick was blasted into the wall by James Pritchard, who collected the rebound and returned the ball into the danger area, but Aneke was able to nip in front of Romeo and gather the ball.

Slough were beginning to make their superior possession count and created a half-chance for Romeo. Platt flicked the ball through and Romeo blasted the ball goalwards from a tight angle, but the giant Aneke was equal to the task, getting down low to his right to turn the ball behind.

Minutes before half time, Slough hit the woodwork themselves as Lee Riddell’s sweetly-struck half volley from 30 yards clipped the top of the crossbar, with Aneke beaten.

Slough could have trailed at half time, but Grant shot straight at Jamie Jackson from just inside the area after being played through by Telemaque.

At the start of the second half, Telemaque was causing more problems for the Slough back line. First he put across a dangerous cross from the right which evaded everyone, and minutes later he could have punished his former club after being played clean through by Michael Buck, but Jackson rushed out and spread himself to deny him.

Byron Bubb replaced Fermie as Slough looked for a bit more creativity in midfield, but it was Bracknell who looked more like scoring, breaking forward at every opportunity. The hosts created another clear chance with a quarter of an hour left, but Nathan Jack was again unable to beat Jackson, who blocked well with Evans putting in a last-ditch tackle.
