It's been a tough few weeks at Stag Meadow with ever growing injury list but things may have finally started to come together.
Windsor Manager Mark Cooper is currently without at least 8 of his current squad including Captain George Gould.
With that in mind, and the recent results, the arrival of local rivals Ascot United to Stag Meadow was always going to be a tough task.
The hosts went on the attack from the first whistle with Nathan White heading just over from an early corner. It wasn't long before they were in the lead. Ben Smyth had worked well down right before crossing for Lindell Stewart to fire in his tenth of the season. Windsor continued to press, and Stewart would have doubled the lead had it not been for Sam Gray. Ascot had their chances with both Harry Laflin and James Harper both being denied by Sam Butcher.

The visitors were forced into a early change when Taylor Morgan was withdrawn and replaced by Denis Nortey.
Windsor did manage to double their lead when Charlie Losasso's corner was headed down nicely for Danny Horscroft to turn in. Windsor continued to press as the half drew to a close and could have wrapped the game up with Excellence Muhemba leaving Gray beaten but the effort went just wide.

The second half saw the visitors start with another change with Rashid Hamid replacing Callum Ferguson.
Windsor kept up the pressure in the second half and once again had it not been for Gray they would have conceded again. This time he was able to keep out Muhemba after he had got free of Sam Evans.
Just after the hour Windsor managed to get that elusive third goal when Horscroft's determination allowed him to cross for Eric Sowolona to turn in. The three goal advantage lasted barely a minute as Adam Everiss was able to get through to reduce the deficit.
Ascot suffered further injuries late in a match that they ultimately lost in the first half.
