It's now 560 minutes since Windsor conceded a goal following today's HLP match at struggling Abingdon Utd.
With Kai Davis, Paul Coyne and Kieran Knight unavailable and Darren Abbey having returned to Egham Town, Mick Woodham was forced into changes.
Ben Smythe filled the right back role with George Gould playing Centre Half. Andy Ingram continued up front with Dan Roberts.
Windsor started confidently, taking just ten minutes for Dan Roberts to trouble the home side with a low effort brilliantly saved by the goal keeper.
Multiple corners followed without too much trouble for the home side and a pattern of possession was clear.
Ingram had a half chance, Brooks-Smith had an effort deflected wide before Fabio Nunes' close range attempt was saved. It was Nunes clash with the keeper that saw him pick up a knee injury and he was forced off. Jordan Ellis replaced him.
Ellis was immediately into action winning a free kick which Di Giuseppe delivered into a dangerous area, Ocansey unable to guide the ball home.
At the opposite end Sobte misjudged a through ball, the Abingdon forward forced wide enough though before Gould cleared the danger. This turned out to be the home sides only chance of the game.
Half time came and went, the pattern of play unchanged. Windsor attempted to increase the tempo without much success and chances for Ellis and Ingram were easily defended.
Dan Roberts had the best chance of the match, a back post header clawed off of the line by the impressive keeper.
Moments later Ingram was involved in an accidental clash with the ATFC centre half who needed extensive treatment for a eye injury, an elbow catching the defender on the eyebrow.
Matt Stockill was industrious and it was his through ball that saw Dan Roberts shoot wide.
As time ticked away Ingram was fouled and Lazarczuk and Di Giuseppe plotted a set piece.
Di Giuseppe rolled the ball short to Lazarczuk who reversed the ball, Jamie unleashed a low drive which caught an opposition heel, the ball spinning into the bottom corner.
Wild celebrations met the award of the goal, Wonder Mick Woodham and Barry Hayles buried under all ten outfield players.v
Not the best performance but another side to Windsor; gritty, patient. Job done.
