Welling United are up to second in National League South after a 2-1 win over Slough Town on Saturday.
It was a hard-fought battle as a resilient Slough team fought all the way and had goalscoring opportunities of their own. Had Welling failed to win they would have had only themselves to blame as they missed a number of great opportunities in the first half.
Disaster struck for Welling when the influential Jebb fell awkwardly clutching his knee. He was stretchered off and David Ijaha replaced him.
Coombes was in the thick of it and started the next attack. He pick-pocketed a dithering defender and poked it to Goldberg. He laid it off to Nassim L’Ghoul but he struck his shot into the side netting.
Slough’s Warren Harris was gifted a chance when Thierry Audel collapsed with cramp but he headed over. While the Welling defender was off the field getting attention, his side went ahead.
Slough had a chance to nick a point in injury time. Dobson’s cross was met by the head of Sam Togwell but the former Crystal Palace midfielder glanced his header wide.
Welling travel to third-placed Woking on Saturday with an FA Cup first round place at stake.
