CHELSEA and Queens Park Rangers legend Ray Wilkins paid a visit to Arbour Park to watch Slough Town beat Merthyr Town 3-2 on Saturday.

Wilkins, 61, was a guest of Welsh club Merthyr at the Southern Premier Division match and spoke with the Observer at the half-time interval.

The television pundit and former coach said of the first 45 minutes: "I thoroughly enjoyed it.

VIDEO: Ray Wilkins gives his thoughts on the first 45 minutes at Arbour Park on Saturday.

"Slough have had so many chances they might well have put this game away, but give Merthyr a little bit of credit because they've fought their backsides off to come in at half-time on level pegging.

"Slough don't need to do too much (to win). They've probably been the best side. They have a couple of players that can use the ball and passed it really well.

"I would think at the end of the game Slough will win, but there's always a but in football, and if they don't put their chances away then this Merthyr side may well take them to pieces."

Wilkins made 179 appearances and scored 30 goals for Chelsea between 1973-79 before managing the club in a caretaker role in 2009.

On his beloved Blues, he said: "Chelsea are a first class side with absolutely fantastic footballers.

"Cesc Fabregas for me is the best player there, his brain is just so quick, I love him. William and Eden Hazard are others and they will be fine, they'll win something this year.

"I think unfortunately the Premier League is done and dusted, when everyone is losing four matches and Man City have lost one. You can't make up those games.

"When the differential is five games you just can't do it, it's a non-starter."
