Windsor FC dropped two valuable points in their quest for promotion drawing 2-2 away at Hanworth Villa.
This leaves them sitting eleven points behind Guildford City with two games in hand and yet to play them at Stag Meadow.
As for the game itself, it was definitely a game of two halves with Windsor on top in the first half and Hanworth taking control in the second.
Windsor pushed hard for an early opener and almost got one when Terry Buss was only able to punch Ryan O'Toole's header as far as Jake Parsons who's effort was well saved.
They did take the lead moments later when Parsons again tested Buss and this time he could only parry the ball into the path of a grateful Yashwa Romeo for a simple finish.
Hanworth could have hit back straight away had it not have been for Rob Bullivant tipping Anthony Oaks' effort over the bar.
The lead was doubled on the half hour mark when the Hanworth defence failed to deal with a corner which was eventually only cleared to Jake Parsons and from 30 yards out hit a superb effort that beat Buss.
Parsons could have grabbed a second soon after when he beat off the challenge of Joe Johnson to cut inside and strike only to see his shot hit the cross bar and go behind.
There were goal line heroics at the other to preserve the two goal lead when Oaks beat Bullivant to the ball from a free kick only for Chris Ellis clear off the line.
The second half was barely ten minutes old when Hanworth halved the deficit when Oaks got on the end of Charlie Hare's cross to head past Bullivant.
From here on Hanworth took control as chance after chance rained down on the Windsor goal only for Hanworth to fond Bullivant in inspired form for the second half.
Windsor looked as if they had done enough to hold on for all three points until Matt Baines sent the ball into the box where Laurie Shennan turned and sent the ball past Bullivant for an injury time leveller.
