Windsor secured a second win in three games on a bitterly cold night at Stag Meadow with a brace from Barry Dunbar and a first goal for the club from Daniel Price.
With the returning George Gould in the Windsor midfield and new signing Ellis Jones-Aryeh in the starting line-up, Windsor made a brisk start attacking the Town End. The impressive Brad Pearce with Windsor's first effort on goal following great work in the middle of the park.
Jamie Di Giuseppe had Windsor's next effort, a 20 yard free-kick which failed to trouble the away side's keeper. A minute later however, Barry Dunbar opened the scoring with his goal of the season contender.
Spelthorne cleared the initial attack with a header, only to find the predatory Dunbar on the edge of the area. Super Barry's 18 yard first time volley nestled in the net giving Fuller no chance and Windsor a deserved lead.
Half chances were created by both teams, Gould heading a Lazarczuk corner wide for the hosts and Mooney dragging his effort wide of the home goal. Brad Pearce couldn't match Dunbar's earlier finish, his volley not troubling Fuller.
Next to try his luck was Mano Goganos. A driving room from inside his own half followed by a low effort going just wide of the goal.
Into the second half and Brad Pearce again went close, his header narrowly missing the target after great work by Nadir Shafi. Robert Lazarczuk tried his luck from 40 yards, this time Fuller saves comfortably.
Sports tried to gain a foothold in the game, Hughes firing wide and a Dyett header easily saved by the home goalkeeper. Just as Sports gained momentum, Dunbar notched his second of the night. A fine left foot finish following great work from Laza and Jamie Di G down the left hand side.
Windsor were in cruise mode from the moment the second goal went in. Shafi with a shot blocked, Lazarczuk firing wide and debutant Jones-Aryeh had a shot cleared from off the line as Windsor looked to put the icing on the very cold cake!
There was time for Rio Riaz to make a comeback appearance following a lengthy injury spell and Daniel Price also entered the fray, replacing Laza.
It was Price who sealed the victory very late on, controlling well before slotting past Fuller in the Sports goal.
A decent performance from Windsor on a very cold night and excellent performances from Brad Pearce and Jamie Di Giuseppe, with signs of a return to match sharpness for Robert Lazarczuk.
