Maidenhead United came from two goals down to defeat bottom of the table Farnborough 5-2 in emphatic style.

Farnborough who have failed to win a game all season raced into a two-goal lead at half time thanks to goals from James Hall and Morgan Lewis.

A second half come back allowed the hosts to claim all three points with goals from Zidin Ackers, Bradley Keetch, Stefan Rodgers, Fabien Etienne and Ryan Smith.

Speaking after the game, Magpies manager Aaron O’Brien was happy with his sides character to come back from a two-goal disadvantage.

He said:” We were two goals down at half time and not playing great football, but we reacted brilliantly in the second half and showed great character to get the win.

“Now we just need to keep going and hopefully use our second half performance into our other games that we play.”

With this win, Maidenhead rise to 6th place with 13 points. However, Farnborough stay bottom with only point to their name.

Elsewhere, another game included seven goals as Windsor thrashed Basingstoke 6-1 to move up to second place in Division E.

Connor Shingleston grabbed himself a hat-trick, Jack Denton, Luke Appleton and Joe Zemaitis completed the scoring.

Kieron Rodgers replied for Basingstoke, but it wasn’t enough for John Gaston’s men as they have now lost 7 games this season.

Windsor have so far scored an impressive 27 goals in just 9 matches this season, whilst only conceding 13.

For the second week in a row, Eastleigh Blues have picked up all three points by winning 5-0. This time they beat Hungerford away from home.

Tom Bearwish and Lewis Waterfield scored two goals each whilst Jack Adams scored another for Eastleigh Blues.

With this win, Eastleigh Blues rise above Bashley in the league table to 4th, however, Hungerford remain in 7th position.

Gosport Borough secured their third win of the season by beating Andover 3-0 at the Portway stadium.

A goal a piece from Leo King, Hessen Hikmat and Jack Ban der Lught enabled Tony Stares’ men to pick up three points.

Gosport now jump over their Andover in the league table to 8th, whilst Andover drop down one place to 9th in the table.

League leaders Oxford City managed to pick up their 6th league win this season by beating high flying Chippenham at Marsh Lane.

Two goals from Henry Landers and one each for Tobias London and Udoka Godwin made sure of the win in convincing manner.

Ash Shanley clawed a goal back for the visitors but it proved to be only a consolation goal. With this defeat, Chippenham have incurred their first defeat of the season.

Mickey Lewis’s team remain unbeaten in Division E and have also scored an impressive 27 goals in their eight games.

This result means that Oxford extend their lead at the top of the table to 3 points ahead of second place Windsor and have a game in hand over their rivals.

Chippenham on the other hand drop down one place to third with 14 points but also have two games in hand to play.

There are only two games in Division E next week as Bashley return to league matters to host Windsor.

In the other game, Hungerford will be looking to return to winning ways by hosting bottom of the league Farnborough.
