Southern League Premier Division: Dunstable Town 1 Slough Town 3

Dunstable Town let a 1-0 lead slip as they conceded three times in the second half to suffer defeat at home to Slough Town on Tuesday night.

The hosts were once again without the services of the injured Steven Gregory and Lewis Pepera, although former Luton Town full back Jerome Jibodu made his return in defence, with Zack Reynolds fit again too.

Dunstable started brightly as Victor Osobu’s shot was saved by Mark Scott, while Slough’s Adrian Sear headed wide.

The Blues were then in front on 15 minutes when Osobu’s fervent long pass found Connor Calcutt and he finished well.

However, Slough came back strongly, Dan Hicks shooting over, while home keeper Paul Bastock saved Lewis Putman’s free kick and then denied Charlie Mpi too.

Jhai Dillon was also off target as Dunstable kept their lead intact act the break, only for Slough to equalise after seven minutes of the second half, through Strutton.

From that point, the visitors took control as Warren Harris made it 2-1 on 73 minutes, while Mpi had the third seven minutes later.

Blues’ misery was complete late on with sub John Frendo was dismissed for clashing with his opponent as the Blues now travel to Chippenham Town this weekend.
