Four minutes later Slough restored their lead after a counter attack and a cross-field pass picked out LEWIS PUTMAN in space in the left channel of the Cirencester penalty area and he calmly placed his shot inside the far right post. 1-2.
With ten minutes remaining Slough completed the scoring when the ball was crossed from the by-line to the far left post where GAVIN JAMES headed home off the inside of the post. 1-3.
