GAP CLOSES: Wealdstone fall to defeat in crucial game at the top

 Published on: 27th December 2019   |   By: Geraint Roberts   |   Category: Wealdstone F.C

Slough Town close the gap to just four points on Vanarama National League South leaders Wealdstone with 2-1 victory.

The Stones had a great opportunity on the 12th minute to give them an early lead when Dennon Lewis breaking free on the left, but he couldn’t quite square the ball to Mendy who could have tapped the ball home.

Ashley Charles came close for Wealdstone from a free kick on the 18th minute, but the strike only found the side netting.

Despite having a good opening 20 minutes, it was Slough who took the lead on the 25th minute when William Edjenguele fouled Ben Harris in the box, who then got up to slot the penalty beyond Harvey Insted.

Slough probably should have doubled their advantage just before half time when George Wells had a glorious chance in front of goal, but couldn’t get the shot on target.

Lewis thought he got a goal back just after the second half started when Clifford slipped him through and he put it beyond the Slough goalkeeper, but the linesman had raised his flag to stop him in his tracks.

Wealdstone struggled to create any real chances after that, and Slough put the game beyond doubt in the 88th minute when Max Worsfold made it 2-0.

However, Michee Efete did manage to get one back for the Stones in stoppage time with a well taken finish, but it wasn’t enough to launch a memorable fightback. 

The league leaders remain in a comfortable position despite losing this game, but missed a wonderful opportunity to go ten points ahead at the top of the Vanarama National League South

Next up for them is a home game against St Albans, who have picked up their form recently, winning their last two games and getting themselves out of the relegation zone.
