Windsor FC will feel that they let 2 points slip away after their 2-2 draw away at Farnham Town.
Windsor once again had the chance to go to top spot in the Combined Counties Premier Division but had to settle for second, 2 points behind Guildford City.
Manager Keith Scott gave a start to new signing Andrew Fagan who has been brought in initially as cover for the suspended Fergus Moore.
It was a bad start for Windsor as they were behind within the opening two minutes when they failed to deal with Mark Corbett's cross which Jack Dillion fired in from the edge of the area.
Windsor pushed to get back in the game and came very close when Chris Ellis' long throw found the head of Fagan but his effort went just over the bar.
They pulled level just before half time when Ryan O'Toole struck a 30 yard free kick straight past the wall and a stationary Adrian Gies.
Both sides could have taken the lead moments later when first Dillion raced through for Farnham but was unable to beat Mark Banfry and then Kyle Anthony headed an Ellis throw against the post.
Windsor came out strongly in the second half and when Anthony managed to disposes Matt Bunyan he was left with only Gies to beat but sent his effort just wide of the post.
A wonderful double save by Gies kept Windsor out as both Jake Parsons and O'Toole tried their luck.
Farnham were reduced to 10 men for the final 15 minutes as Bunyan was given his second caution, having already had one of their coaching staff removed from the dugout.
The man advantage failed to help Windsor and they were forced to settle for a point.
