Windsor FC have kept up the pressure in the race for the Combined Counties Premier Division title with the comeback of the season.
Three goals down after 36 minutes against sixth place Molesey Windsor managed to fire in four goals without reply with Guildford City losing against Wembley.
Windsor manager Keith Scott went with not only a change of formation but a change of personnel due to both Joe Chandiram and Jake Parsons sitting out injured.
Fergus Moore returned at left back and Ryan Parsons moved up to play on the left side of a midfield three.
On paper, the changes wouldn't have looked that bad but the cracks were very soon evident.
Doug Ford picked the ball up on the right, get into the area and hit a shot that looped over Rob Bullivant and under the bar after just 3 minutes.
Windsor had chances to pull level when Ryan O'Toole put Michael Chennells through but he was unable to find a way past Wester Young.
From the resulting Ben Porter corner Andrew Fagan headed just the wrong side of the post.
Those missed chances would seem all the more important when Molesey doubled their lead through Ross Chalke who was quickest react when Nemo Adams' initial shot was blocked.
Things went from bad to worse moments later when Molesey added a third when Adams was left with plenty of space to set himself before striking low past Bullivant.
Windsor were thrown a life line just before half time when Adams clipped O'Toole earning the home side a penalty which O'Toole hit tight into the top corner.
Whatever was said in the home team dressing room, combined with a couple of changes, seemed to have an effect and Windsor were soon back in the match.
Five minutes into the second half Windsor halved the deficit when substitute Rob Lazarczuk crossed and Chennells headed past Young.
Chennells then turned provider for O'Toole who shot low past Young to level the score.
Windsor's task of securing all three points was made slightly easier when Joe Prately-Jones was shown red for an over the top challenge on Lazarczuk.
Despite being a man down Molesey could have added a fourth when Bullivant failed to make contact with the ball following a free kick and had to rescued by Chris Ellis who cleared off the line.
Windsor continued to push forward and eventually got their reward in injury time when Chennells rose highest to meet a Porter corner and beat Young.
Chennells came a post width away from a hat-trick when his effort from the corner of the area managed to beat Young but not the post.
