I THOUGHT we played okay for the first 40 minutes but the wind picking up and being in Slough’s favour in the second half made things more difficult.

Also, at 2-0 down they had nothing to lose, yet we showed good resolve and weathered the storm.

All four goals were good and the finishing was excellent.

But the third goal was crucial in the context of the match because it had 2-2 written all over it at that stage.

Jason Welsh came on for his debut in the last 25 minutes and did well.

Griff was having trouble holding the ball up on his own, especially with the wind, and our two wide men were not getting in the game.

So we changed the system to 4-4-2, threw Jason up front with Griff, and the pressure eased immediately.

Jason had a hand on both the third and fourth goals and he won some money at the Race Night after the game as well, so he was happy and we were happy with him, too.

This side was under-achieving before Christmas and they are only doing now what I would expect from a squad with this quality.

We now have a Cup game on Wednesday against Bristol City and the 11 will probably include only Tom King from the side that started against Slough.

Lee Spalding, Jason Welsh, Craig Curtis, Matt Williams and the two Preece brothers will all start.

Of course, the lads are all chuffed that they have taken their unbeaten run to six and that is 12 goals in the last three home games, but they are not getting carried away.

On Saturday, we play Thatcham Town who are in the play-offs and on a good run They will be a good yardstick and, after that, we will see exactly how far we have come.
