Windsor put the defeat to Flackwell behind them to hit back in impressive style to beat Brackley Town Saints 7-2 at Stag Meadow.
Having gone 4 unbeaten in the league prior to the match against the Heathens, Mark Cooper was eager to see his side return to winning ways.
Windsor came out with all guns blazing and could have been a couple up in the first couple of minutes.
Billy Montague was first denied by Matt Crowther in the first 10 seconds of the game and just moments later Montague was denied again when his effort deflected off a defender.
Montague was through again just minutes later until he was brought down on the edge of the area by Crowther. Calls for a dismissal and penalty from supporters were ignored by the officials and instead a free kick and a caution for Crowther.
Windsor continued to pile the pressure on the Brackley defence and finally took a deserved lead.
Nojus Trinovas took a free kick from mid-way inside his own half picking out Montague who somehow managed to win his own flick on before firing past Crowther.
It was pretty much all one way traffic in the first half with Brackley managing the odd half hearted effort on goal.
Windsor doubled their lead shortly before the break when a pin point pass down the right from Kai Davis put Montague through to slot past Crowther.
Minutes later and it could have been three when Tomas Kalinauskas created space to shoot only for the ball to come back off the inside of the post.
The half time talk appeared to do nothing to inspire the visitors as Windsor quickly put an end to the match as a contest.
Montague turned provider in the form of a corner which somehow Adam McNamara bundled over the line for his first club goal.
The fourth arrived shortly after when Montague again turned provider when he teed up Kalinauskas to slam the ball in.
Brackley were very quickly becoming the architects of their own demise when they tried to play out from the back only for McNamara close down Crowther forcing him to lose control of the ball for an easy finish.
It wasn't all bad news and misfortune for the visitors, in fact they got an element of good fortune to pull a goal back, if not a little too late.
Lewis Middleton's attempted cross came back off the inside of the post before hitting Trinovas and going in.
The 5 goal lead was soon restored when Montague completed his hat-trick thanks to the hard work of Keaton August.
Kalinauskas hit the seventh when Montague turned provider yet again. Not only had Montague already completed a hat-trick of goals but now a hat-trick of assists.
There was still time for one last consolation goal for the visitors when Sam Hartley was able to head in Jordan Godfrey's free kick.
Windsor will look to build on today's win when they face Reading City at Stag Meadow on Tuesday evening.
