A JAMES DOB­SON penalty gave Slough three much-needed points that lift them to eighth po­si­tion in the ta­ble, leapfrog­ging Con­cord in the process.

The spot-kick came af­ter five min­utes as Matthew Stevens was played into the box and in­stead of guid­ing him away from goal, de­fender Tyrone Ster­ling pushed him over, giv­ing the ref­eree an easy, early de­ci­sion.

Up stepped Dob­son to give Slough an early lead from 12 yards that they never sur­ren­dered.

How­ever, Con­cord had a bril­liant chance to equalise ten min­utes later as a great free-kick was put in, find­ing Danny Green in acres of space in the mid­dle of the penalty area.

But some­how he could guide his ef­fort only on to the post when it had looked eas­ier to score than miss.

The best chance of the sec­ond half came very for­tu­nately to Slough as Con­cord looked to clear a cor­ner but the ball re­bounded back into the box off of the ref­eree.

Stevens re­acted quick­est to get to the ball first but his shot was well blocked by Sam Beas­ant in the Con­cord goal.

The ball was not quite clear and the goal­keeper had to make two more good saves to prevent Slough set­tling their nerves with a sec­ond goal.
