Windsor picked up their first ever point in the Hellenic League with a 1-1 draw away at Royal Wooten Bassett Town.
Windsor travelled to Swindon looking for their first Hellenic League point and duly obliged with a 'winning' draw.
Starting brightly, Windsor went close after only five minutes when Barry Hayles had an effort bundled off the line following good work from Denzel Bonilla-Hurtado.
Moments later Bonilla-Hurtado drove a cross shot across the area, narrowly missed at the back post by Billy Oram.
The home side rarely troubled Hugo Sobte, restricted to shots from distance until they opened the scoring with a free header from a corner.
Five minutes later came the strangest moment of the match, Windsor's Joash Nembhard shown a red card for verbally abusing an opponent whilst waiting for a home corner to be delivered.
The game threatened to boil over momentarily when Haydon Clack's innocuous challenge upset RWBT centre forward - his tirade of foul language aimed at the referee punished with a yellow card...Mick Woodham looking on in disbelief.
The second half belonged to Windsor. Woodham stuck with the remaining back three and Windsor pressed from the outset.
Haydon Clack equalised with a pile driver from 18 yards. Hayles went close soon after and Elliott Woodham headed over from close range.
Windsor were relentless and Sobte a spectator. Nadir Shafi was upended and Brooks-Smith shot narrowly wide.
At the final whistle it was the home side who were happier with the point.
