Windsor finally picked up their first win of 2016 with a 2-1 victory over Epsom & Ewell at Stag Meadow.
WIndsor manager Mick Woodham gave starts to recent signings Baboucarr Jarra and Henry Montague and also moved Riccardo Cannon back out of defence into his usual striking role.
Windsor started well and had the better of the opening exchanges.
Henry Montague did well to get the ball across Cannon but his effort was somehow kept out by the feet of Micheal Eacott.
Cannon then had a header saved from a Levi Thackeray cross as Windsor started to look the more likely to take the lead.
Despite the chances it was the visitors that took the lead when Robert Hendry was able to bend the ball round Victor Ocansey to set up Savva Panayioutou who slotted past Carl Dennison.
Windsor pushed hard to get back into the match and when Jason Sheehan had an effort clawed from under the bar followed by Montague shooting just wide from outside the area, it looked only a matter of time before they would find the net.
Tempers flared as the half drew to a close when Rhys North was accused of stamping on Amin Khomsi. Following arguments between players and officials the referee finally produced a yellow card.
The second half saw Windsor continue to push the promotion contenders and shortly after the restart pull level.
Naheer Nawaf got free down the left and sent the ball low across the goal when Montague poked it in for his first club goal.
Moments later Epsom had calls for a penalty turned away when Panayioutou's effort struck the arm of Jake Jenkins before going harmlessly wide.
Midway through the half and Windsor finally got themselves ahead when te ball fell kindly for Khomsi in the Epsom area giving hi time to turn and fired past Eacott.
Kyle Hough had a great opportunity to level the scores when he was put through by Matt Ferdinando but a mis-control of the ball allowed Dennison to easily claim it at the strikers feet.
Epsom pushed as the game wore on but Windsor's defence was resilient enough to hold out for 3 very needed points.
