Slough Town co-manager Jon Underwood admitted Saturday’s late comeback against play-off chasing Concord Rangers ‘felt like a win’
The Rebels looked set to be on the way to their first league defeat of the month but late goals from Francis Amartey and an injury-time equaliser from Lee Togwell made sure that Slough left the Aspect Arena with a point.
“It certainly felt like a win,” Underwood said.
“Very few gave us a chance against a very good Concord side. They’ve only lost once at home in the league since last August.
“The sending off before half time made things tougher. They went 1-0 up and then made it 2-0 after half time and
I think everyone was a bit fearful that it was going to be a bad day.
“But I think they got a bit comfortable and we played really well and in the end even their manager said we were good value for our point.”
Neil Baker and Underwood’s men have enjoyed a good
run of form of late after struggling at the beginning of the year.
They sit 12th in the National League South and haven’t lost in their last three matches after Saturday’s dramatic draw.
“We’ve found ourselves in a comfortable mid-table position,” added Underwood.
“I think play-offs are out of the question but we still want to do the best we can. We aren’t taking things easy.
“We are showing people we want to finish as high as poss-ible and we are still in the Berks and Bucks Senior Cup so we want a bit of silverware too.”
That game, against Marlow FC, comes during the last week of what will be a busy March period for the Rebels – who face Billericay Town this weekend before a tough trip away to current league leaders Woking.
But Underwood is confident the side can carry on their good form and is already targeting silverware to round off the season.
“We have Marlow FC the week after next in the semi-
finals of the Berks and Bucks Senior Cup” Underwood said.
“It’s a huge game for us.
“We haven’t won the Berks and Bucks Senior Cup for 38 years and I know the chairman would like to get his hands on it. It will round off a very positive season for us.”
Tomorrow’s (Saturday) game against Billericay Town at
Arbour Park kicks off at 3pm.
