Windsor edged a closely fought match to pick up a valuable 3 points beating Sandhurst Town 4-3 at Bottom Meadow.
Windsor got off to a great start taking the lead within the opening 10 minutes.
A long ball from Chris Ellis bounced over the head of Luke Turkington allowing Ryan O'Toole a free run to pick out Yashwa Romeo for a simple finish.
Sandhurst were lucky not to have been reduced to ten men early on when Callum Hodge-Fleming picked up a soft booking for blocking of Ryan Parsons, but two cynical challenges shortly after went un-punished before he was eventually substituted.
Windsor doubled their lead with a well created and executed chance when O'Toole found Ryan Ashe on the edge of the area and he flicked the ball up and over the defence where Romeo did the same to Matthew Watson.
A third was quickly added when Parsons free kick was only cleared to Ellis on the edge of the area where he volleyed in past Watson for his first club goal.
If Sandhurst were lucky to have kept Hodge-Fleming on the pitch then they were even luckier to keep Matthew Watson.
Ashe had picked the ball up on the half way line and despite defenders around him Watson came rushing out of goal and two footed Ashe in the centre circle and somehow walked away with only a caution.
A momentary lapse of concentration allowed Steven Eyango-Bwanga to pull a goal back minutes before half time as the sides went in with Windsor firmly in control.
Sandhurst looked as if they would try and bounce back in the second half and when Junior Akonor forced Bullivant to push the ball over the bar it looked like they might just give it a go.
That chance only served to wake the visitors and who saw two Romeo efforts go begging when he first shot wide and then had another well saved by Watson.
It looked as if Windsor had put the match firmly out of Sandhurst's grasp on 70 minutes when Joe Chandiram set up Kyle Anthony from O'Toole's cross for Windsor's fourth.
Sandhurst started to mount a mini fight back in the closing 15 minutes which started when Ezango-Bwanga picked out Chris Fermie who volleyed past Bullivant.
They then set up a nervy last few minutes when Liam Eagles headed in Toby Jannaway's free kick but it wasn't enough to prevent Windsor picking up a much needed 3 points.
