FREE-SCORING Chesham United made it five wins out of five with this pre-season victory over Slough Town.
The Generals continued their impressive form by coming from behind to dominate the Rebels and net four goals yet again.
Simon Thomas missed a penalty but made amends from the spot in another brace while skipper Danny Talbot and Leon Archer also scored.
The win pleased boss Andy Leese who is delighted with the way his side are gelling in attack.
He said: “The first 20 minutes was a bit helter-skelter but then we settled down and I was pleased with how we controlled the game and really dominated the second-half.
“I am disappointed to concede a sloppy second goal but I was happy. We look a threat going forward which is pleasing and seem to be adapting to different formations.”
United fell behind on eight minutes when ex-winger Dom Marsala broke the offside trap and crossed for Ben Abbey to tap in from close range.
But their lead lasted until the 16th minute when Talbot lined up a 20-yard free-kick and curled a sublime effort into the bottom corner.
Chesham were rampant and were awarded a penalty for handball which Thomas saw saved by Slough stopper Charlie Fanner on 21 minutes.
But the Rebels goalkeeper had no chance six minutes later when another handball gave the ex-Palace striker another spot-kick which he rifled in to make it 2-1.
Slough barely got into the Chesham half after the interval and fell further behind on 50 minutes when Thomas was put through by a superb through ball and finished well for his second of the game and seventh of pre-season.
when Steve Wales raced onto a James Potton through ball but the midfielder's shot was blocked by a sprawling defender.
The rebound fell perfectly for Archer to lash home the rebound and make it 4-1 on 69 minutes before Charles Mpi completed the scoring by pulling a goal back for Town with 19 minutes to go.
