Neil Baker doesn’t feel Slough Town can be accused of resting on their laurels, after signing Scott Davies and Matt Day to help them cement a play-off place.

Last season the Rebels limped into the play-offs, but were woefully short of form as they bowed out with a bit of a whimper at the first hurdle against Leamington.

This season Baker and Jon Underwood want to ensure the Rebels have a little momentum behind them, if, or more likely when, they go into the play-off matches.

Last week’s draw at Bishop’s Stortford, and win at St Ives Town, have given the Rebels a little cushion as they prepare for a hectic run of fixtures and, ideally, Baker said the club would finish in either second or third place to give themselves some home comforts in the first play-off match.

But Baker said that they’d have to play well between now and the end of April to make sure of that.

“I think that we’re looking to ensure that we don’t simply see the season out,” said Baker. “We made the play-offs last year, but we weren’t in form going into those matches. We didn’t do an awful lot about that in the latter weeks of the season, but I don’t think anyone could accuse us of that now. Hopefully these guys will give us the
impetus we need to get over the line.”
