SLOUGH Town joint-manager Jon Underwood on Saturday wants to see "a damn sight more character" than last weekend.

The Rebels' preparations for this weekend's FA Trophy fourth round tie at York City took a knock when they suffered a 6-1 mauling at Chippenham Town in National League South.

Underwood admitted to feeling "let down" by his players, with captain Ben Harris being singled out having received a straight red card for violent conduct following a missed penalty. The 30-year-old striker, who has four goals this season, will be suspended for the game at the LNER Community Stadium (3pm).

"It's one of the worst performances since we (Underwood and fellow joint-boss Neil Baker) have had since we've been here. It's certainly a shocking result," Underwood told

"I had to speak honestly (with the players) and I said the reason for the defeat was they wanted it more than we did, by some distance.

"I didn't see that coming. I thought we had more about us.

"We've been in good form for a couple of months now but in football, if you don't turn up, you start sloppy, you start slow...

"We need to get our heads back on. We need to move on from this pretty quickly and have a positive training session.

"We've got a huge game and we need to show a damn sight more character than (against Chippenham) that's for sure."
