10 man Windsor picked a deserved point against early pace setters Cove but may feel they deserved all 3.
Coming up against an unbeaten Cove side Windsor were never expecting a easy ride but came very close to maximum points.
A cautious start from both sides saw limited opportunities until mid-way through the half when a hopeful punt upfield found the head of Paul Coventry for the opener.
Windsor pulled level just before the break in similar fashion. Carl Dennison's long ball up field was nicely controlled by Dan Molloy who picked out Jason Sheehan to fire the ball past Sam Johnson-Freeman.
After the break and Windsor continued to press and almost went ahead when Chris Ellis' cross found Kane Jones but his effort went just over the bar.
A bizzare refereeing decision appeared give the advantage to the visitors when Adam Kirby was sent off for a challenge on Jake Baxter.
Despite being a man down, Windsor got themselves ahead when Sheehan managed to get his head to Kyle Lucas' free kick to send the ball past Johnson-Freeman.
The playing numbers should have been evened out when Aaron Parfitt went straight through Molloy but the official decided to show leniency and only produce a yellow card.
As the clock ticked down Cove continued to apply the pressure and when Dan Akinwande hit the post from close range it looked as if Windsor might just hold on to all three points.
That was until minute into injury time when James King managed to get above everyone else to head in the equaliser sparking celebrations as if Cove had already won the league.
