SWINDON Supermarine suffered late heartbreak last night as they conceded in the final minute of their 3-2 home loss to Shortwood.
The night had started so positively when Ash Edenborough thundered a scissor kick in off the bar to give his side the lead but they were soon pegged back when Ross Langley levelled things up.
Marine were 2-1 down before the break when Jon Steadman diverted into his own net but it looked as if Josh Parsons had secured a point after heading in Jake Johns’ cross.
However, there was to be a late sting in the tail when Sean Lawson fired home the late equaliser.
Manager Dave Webb noted some improvement from his side’s last home outing, a 4-2 defeat to Didcot, but was left frustrated by some sloppy defending.
“It’s a hard one to take because we played better than we did in our last home game but at the end of the day we’ve given away three poor goals,” he said.
“They were errors and mistakes because we didn’t defend balls into our box well enough and they punished us.
“The performance was good but no win means no points and we have to be disappointed with that.
“They started better than us but we got a few balls into our box away before Ash finished really well to give us a good start.
“But we conceded within two minutes and we can’t afford to do that at all. It summed up our night.”
