Windsor FC were lucky to survive in their opening game picking up a 1-1 draw at home to South Park.
Without captain Ryan Parsons, due to returning from a mid-week trip to Ireland, Windsor struggled in the early going.
An early chance came when Daniel Stone's corner found Daniel Guscott who headed back across goal and Scott Robson head over.
Dale Burgess then managed to literally walk through the Windsor defence before having his shot saved.
Kieran Lavery was then gifted an opportunity but fired over the bar.
Despite being on the wrong end of the chances it was Windsor that took the lead when a long ball from Rob Bullivant was missed by Guscott letting Ryan O'Toole in to grab the first of the season.
South Park continued to apply the pressure and were once again denied when Bullivant did well to tip Burgess' effort over the bar.
Park's grabbed their equaliser Stone's corner washeaded back across goal and turned in by Robson.
If Windsor hadn't already started to feel the pressure it was about to get worse when they lost Kyle Anthony after a knock to the head.
Windosr almost took the lead going into half time when Ben Porter set up O'Toole but James Wastell did very well to keep the effort out.
The early moments of the second half went the way of the visitors and again were denied by a fine Bullivant save from the head of Kieran Lavery.
Windsor could have grabbed all three points in the closing moments when O'Toole picked out Ryan Ashe but Wastell was again able to save.
