Windsor FC have continued their good run of form with a hard fought 1-0 win away at South Park.
Michael Chennells was put straight into the starting line up following his move from Southern League Premier side Brackley Town but that wasn't the only change.
Captain Ryan Parsons was also missing for the match due to the birth of his daughter earlier in the day.
As for the match, it was a steady start for both sides with limited chances.
James Wastell was the busier for the two keepers with Ryan O'Toole firing across his goal early on followed by Chennells being denied from close range.
The second half saw Windsor step up a gear and keep Wastell very busy, who seemed more than up to the task of keeping the visitors out of his net.
Chennells was first to come close when he got his head to Joe Chandiram's corner only for Wastell to block on the line before seeing the ball cleared.
Chennells was involved again when he got on the end of Chris Ellis' cross but again Wastell was somehow able to block the ball and recover in time to deny Jake Parsons.
It was starting to become a one on one battle between Wastell and Chennells with the South Park stopper coming out on top and he again denied the new Windsor front man via a Parsons free kick.
The game turned moments later when a heavy tackle by Kieran Lavery on Ellis earned the South Park striker a straight red card.
Windsor pushed forward from and continued to come close but were again denied by Wastell when he managed to keep out Andrew Fagan's header.
The break through finally came as the game entered the final 10 minutes when Kyle Anthony's cross found Ben Porter at the far post where he lifted the ball back across goal for Parsons to head in.
The celebrations were clearly centred around his brother's latest family addition and the relief of taking the lead was clear to see.
South Park had chances to snatch something from the game late on when Scott Robson hit the post from 20 yards closely followed by Bullivant spilling Dale Burgess' free kick before Fagan managed to clear.
