STERLING PUSH SO COSTLY TO CONCORD
SLOUGH TOWN 1 CONCORD RANGERS 0
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.
