Slough’s final away day of the season ended with a 2-0 defeat in Dorset against Weymouth, despite enjoying large spells of pressure, writes Sam Pryke.

Within two minutes, Johnny Goddard delivered a cross from the right which was headed over by George Alexander.

The Rebels’ next sight of goal saw Matt Lench test the Terras keeper from range, but his effort was palmed away.

On 18, Slough went close to opening the scoring after a period of sustained pressure.

Ogo Obi crossed from the left which found Josh Jackman at the back post, who volleyed against the foot of the post which would have been a sublime finish.

Tyrese Owen was next to try his luck, but his curled effort was deflected wide for a corner as Slough asserted authority on the game.

On 25, the Rebels went close for a second time courtesy of some intricate play.

After a swift move, Lee Togwell delivered a deep cross which Alexander headed back across goal, but somehow a Terras defender prevented the ball crossing the line in acrobatic fashion.

The hosts rarely posed a threat, but Tom Bearwish saw a strike from the edge of the box deflected wide.

On 33, against the run of play the hosts won a penalty after Joe Dandy was adjudged to have tripped Bearwish in the box, who emphatically smashed the ball into the net from the spot.

The second half started feisty, both teams putting in forceful tackles and trying to get a foothold in the game.

On 62, the Terras almost doubled their lead, but Will Dennis did well to deny a sharp strike from point blank range.

The Rebels searched for a leveller; Owen floated an effort harmlessly over the bar after good hold up play from Obi.

On 64, the hosts did find the second after a cross from the right was slammed home from close by Bradley Ash.

Weymouth then almost found a third, as Bearwish’s low cross was deflected towards goal, but Dennis got a strong hand to prevent it crossing the line.

Dennis was again on hand as the game concluded, using his feet to prevent a low strike from finding the corner amongst a host of bodies.

Slough failed to react to the second goal, struggling to muster a responses as the referee blew for full time in what was a quiet ending to the match.

Slough will want to end the campaign on a high note as they host Braintree Town at Arbour Park next Saturday.
