Two goals in the first-half from Kieron Knight and two in the second from man of the match Keanu Williams see Windsor to victory over Guildford in a thoroughly entertaining match at Stag Meadow.
Knight gave Windsor a lead on 23 minutes with his second goal in as many matches since his summer arrival.
Riccardo Cannon moved the ball on to Williams and he sped down the right wing to cross for Knight, who steered the ball home from inside the box.
Perry Coles brought Guildford level with a powerful strike in the 36th minute.
Coles raced on to a pass down the City right, was too quick for his marker and riffled the ball past keeper Hugo Sobte.
It was the strike of a proven goalscorer and Sobte was helpless to do anything about it.
Knight put Windsor back in front with a breakaway goal in the 43rd minute.
He beat a defender, who was favourite to the ball, rounded the keeper and shot at goal.
Difficult from my angle to tell if his shot was goal-bound or not, but Guildford defender Greg Haydon certainly got the final touch and helped the ball in.
Williams, who is dual registered with Staines Town, further extendee the lead with a goal less than 60 seconds into the second-half.
He used a combination of pace and skill to beat his marker before firing the ball beyond Jordan Clement into the roof of the net.
It was an outstanding individual goal from the attacking winger.
Williams doubled his own tally for the night with a simple tap-in in the 55th minute.
Clement could only palm the ball into the path of the Windsor winger who stroked the ball home before celebrating in front of the home fans.
Alex Penfold pulled a goal back for Guildford with an outstanding free-kick.
Baboucarr Jarra was booked for a foul on Shawn Peter-Clement in a central position but some 30-yards from goal.
The distance did not phase Penfold however and the defender picked out the top corner, giving Sobte no chance.
The game got fiesty from then on with referee Mark Edwards keen to let the game flow it seemed, but Windsor saw out the remaining minutes for three deserved points.
Williams was man of the match tonight having been simply un-playable at times.
