Windsor suffered an opening day defeat at the hands of newly promoted Spelthorne Sports going down 1-0.
Early pressure favoured the home side but quality in the final third was missing.
Both Kane Jones and Kyle Lucas had the beating of their respective full backs but the ability to capitalise just wasn't there.
There were a few moments where it looked as if the visitors would be finishing a few players light.
A two footed lung on Eddie Lazarczuk by Thomas Hall left the Windsor middle man with large stud marks down his shin with no punishment from the referee.
There then followed a 10 minuted delay when when Hall again went in strongly, this time leaving an imprint of his boots on keeper Carl Dennison.
Windsor's inability to convert their pressure would be compounded when Lee Staples headed in from a corner in first half injury time despite Jamie Di Guiseppe's efforts on the post.
Deeper into injury time and again Spelthorne got away with not having a man dismissed. This time it was goal scorer Staples kicking out at Adam kirby right under the nose of the referee who only issued a caution.
The second half was even less inspiring with the visitors again getting away deliberately kicking out.
This time it was Perry Luckins, again under the nose of the referee, who got away with just a caution.
Windsor were fortunate not to then lose RObert Lazarczuk for what could have been seen as a deliberate kick.
Windsor thought that they had managed to pull level in injury time when Dan Molloy turned in Kyle Lucas' corner only to give a foul on keeper Stuart Norman.
The referee did finally produce a red card late in injury time but unfortunately for Windsor it came in the form of a second yellow card for Lazarczuk.
