Jon Underwood (right) said he could not find criticism for Slough Town’s performance against Concord Rangers at the weekend, with the Rebels boss notably commending Alfonso Tenconi and George Hunt’s display at Arbour Park.
On Saturday, 18-year-old Tenconi bagged his second senior goal in Amber and Blue – after the youngster had opened his account earlier in the week against Bath City – to give the Rebels an early lead.
The visitors did manage to come away with a point eventually but were chiefly stifled for the majority of the match by the Rebels’ midfield, featuring a certain Hunt who has been irreplaceable this season.
“He’s started every game for us so far and we rate him very highly,” said Underwood after the game. “I thought he had a very good game today and he’s really coming into his own now.
“Alfonso has also made a very good impression. He has played all of the last three games, scored twice, and worked well up top.
“It was a tap in for him today, a poacher’s finish if you like, but he was quickest to the ball and that’s what we were pleased with.
“Overall, I thought everyone performed well – I’m not going to criticise anything we did today.”
Underwood added: “We said to them in there (the changing rooms), if we had been making wrong decisions that were letting them back in the game then we’d have been critical. But I don’t think we did much wrong.
“Towards the end of the game, they’ve just put a lot of bodies in the box, sent a ball in and, while it could’ve found one of our players, it’s found one of theirs.
“Knowing the lad who scored, Danny Green, he was probably the last one we wanted on that ball because he’s very cool in front of goal. Maybe someone else would have blazed it over but he’s tucked it away.
“I wish we were here talking about nine points in a week, but it wasn’t to be. We’ve got a great game next against Maidstone United which we can now prepare for and look forward to.”
