HIGHLIGHTS: Second defeat in three matches dents Slough Town's title hopes

Slough Town 0, Banbury United 1

A goal on 66 minutes from Banbury’s Ricky Johnson ensured victory for the visitors and made Slough’s hopes of winning the Southern League South Premier title even more unlikely.

The setback at Arbour Park was the Rebels’ second in three league matches.

The defeat leaves them in sixth place, 18 points behind leaders King’s Lynn Town but with six matches in hand.

Hereford remain in pole position in the table, 14 points ahead of the Rebels having played just two games more.

Kempston Rovers 2, Marlow 1

Marlow were unable to cling on to an early lead at Kempston Rovers, eventually losing to two goals in as many minutes in the second half.

The Blues led after 28 minutes when Junaid Bell netted, holding the advantage until the 70th minute when Luke Henegan equalised.

Not much more than a minute later the hosts took the lead thorough a second from Henegan, an advantage they maintained until the final whistle.

Windsor 1, Highworth Town 2

A 29th minute goal from Bradley Pearce was not enough to earn Windsor anything from their Hellenic League Premier Division clash at home to leaders Highworth Town.

Goals on 13 and 79 minutes from Aaron Ferns proved to be the difference between the teams, although the Royalists pushed their high-flying visitors all the way.

Middlesbrough 2, Reading 1

Chris Martin scores his first goal for the Royals but Adama Traore's double secured the points for the hosts.

Traore found the back of the net just either side of half-time, before Martin set up a late, but fruitless, rally from the visitors with his goal on 78 minutes.

Exeter City 1, Wycombe Wanderers 1

An improved second half performance earned the Chairboys at point at St James’ Park.

Lloyd James had given the home side the lead on 12 minutes with a an accurate free-kick, underlining their first half dominance.

However, Wycombe hit back after the break, netting through Marcus Bean on 53 minutes.
