GOALKEEPER Matt Elston-Bull was on top form to help Uxbridge earn a draw from Tuesday night's clash with Slough Town.
Elston-Bull, who saved a penalty in the first half, also made a string of exceptional saves to earn himself the man of the match award as well as a valuable point for his team.
A crowd of 238 spectators were in attendance to watch Uxbridge take on their local rivals, but it was the away side who started the better, building up pressure and taking the game to their hosts.
And it seemed as though the breakthrough was going to come in the 43rd minute. Emmanuel Otira was adjudged to have caught Ollie Burgess and Darren Wheeler stepped up to take the spot-kick, but Elston-Bull was equal to it, getting down smartly to push the ball away.
Slough started the second half in very much the same fashion they'd ended the first. Attacking their opposition, they were soon awarded another penalty. This time Ed Smith took responsibility and this time the back of the net was found.
But rather than pushing on for a second, the away side soon found themselves on the back foot as Uxbridge began to rally, even getting themselves back on level terms.
In the 64th minute, substitute Craig Tomkins found space in the box then found the far corner with an excellent finish.
The game seemed to be petering out as both teams seemed content with the draw, but the fantastic Elston-Bull was called into action one last time, pulling off an excellent save at the death from Slough sub Aaron Crouch to earn a precious point for his side.

Despite taking the lead through Garry Senior after 34 minutes , Northwood were unable to stay in front, eventually succumbing to defeat.
