Windsor FC moved into 2nd place in the Combined Counties Premier Division following a 4-2 win against Horley Town at Stag Meadow.
Windsor could have gone top had the result at Egham gone their way but they ran out 3-0 winners against Chessington & Hook.
The home side made a good start to the match with Chris Ellis' long throw causing problems for the visiting defence.
He first picked out Fergus Moore who's flick found Kyle Anthony but his effort was deflected wide.
Dapo Abitogun was next to to be picked out by Ellis but he again failed to find the target when his header deflected over the bar.
Horley failed to clear the resulting corner and when Ryan O'Toole picked the ball up on the edge of the area the inevitable happened as he fired an effort past Ian Chatfield to give Windsor the lead.
Windsor pushed to increase their lead with Moore heading just wide from a Ben Porter corner and then produced the move of the match.
Yashwa Romeo and O'Toole combined well in a move that resulted in O'Toole volleying over the bar.
Horley weren't without chances of their own with their only clear cut chance coming when Windsor failed to deal with a corner resulting in both Kyle Anthony and Moore blocking on the line.
The visitors got off to a flying start in the second half and were soon level when Kevin Lock's effort from the edge of the area bounced up off Moore's leg and over Rob Bullivant.
They were in front when Jack Poplett pick out Darren Tidey who rose unchallenged to head past Bullivant.
Windsor brought on George Gould moments later and it would turn out to be a game changing decision.
His shutting down of Poplett allowed him to nick the ball and pick out Romeo with a low cross and he fired past Chatfield.
Romeo came close again when his header from a Dave Tilbury cross was well saved by Chatfield before Windsor re-took the lead in controversial fashion.
Gould slipped as he moved down the right and placed his hand on the ball as he went over. All the players stopped expecting a free kick which wasn't forthcoming.
Gould laid the ball back for Tilbury whose cross was met by Porter who set up Romeo to head in.
Windsor made sure of the points in the final minutes when Porters free kick was met by the head of Anthony to move Windsor into 2nd place.
