Chippenham Town v Slough Town, National League South, Hardenhuish Park, Chippenham, Wiltshire. Saturday 16th Nov - kick-off 15h00

The Bluebirds will need no introduction to Slough Town this season given their 3rd Round Qualifying F.A. Cup battle just six weeks ago when a goal by striker Ryan Bird in 90+2 minutes gave Rebels a last gasp equaliser in a high-scoring 3 - 3 cup encounter and home advantage in the replay. A match that saw Slough Town's hopes of reaching the 1st round proper for the third consecutive season dashed when , in another high scoring game, Karnell Chambers netted an 84th minute goal to give the visitors victory by the odd goal in five.

In the subsequent round Chippenham Town defeated, as expected, lowly Whyteleafe 0 - 3 away before losing in the 1st round proper at home against League Two Northampton town 0 - 3.

Despite their good F.A. Cup run Bluebirds are not performing, or scoring, in the league. Indeed only Eastbourne Borough and Welling United have netted fewer league goals. They currently lie in 14th position with 19 points from 15 matches. Full record:

P15 home W3 D3 L1 GF9 GA6 : Away W1 D4 L3 GF6 GA8

Home: D 1 - 1 Oxford City; W 2 - 0 Billericay Town; W 1 - 0 Weymouth; L 1 - 2 Braintree Town; W 2 - 1 Tonbridge Angels; D 2 - 2 Dulwich Hamlet; D 0 - 0 Welling United
Away: D 0 - 0 St. Albans City; L 1 - 0 Wealdstone; D 1 - 1 Hungerford Town; L 1 - 0 Hampton & Richmond Borough; L 1 - 0 Dorking Wanderers; D 3 - 3 Chelmsford City; W 0 - 1 Concord Rangers; D 1 - 1 Dartford

Their average home attendance is 583 and their leading league goal scorers are Karnell Chambers, Chris Zebroski and Luke Hopper each with two goals apiece.

Bookies Odds: Chippenham Town WIN 2/1; the DRAW 12/5; Slough Town WIN 5/4

Prediction: If Rebels can stop leaking goals to their west country rivals there is no reason why they should not return with maximum points; otherwise a draw would seem the logical outcome.
Chippenham Town 1 - 2 Slough Town
