ROYAL Wootton Bassett Town’s topsy-turvy form in the Hellenic League Premier Division continued on Saturday as they came from behind to clinch a 2-1 success at home to Woodley United.

Rich Hunter’s men went into the match off the back of 6-1 and 4-3 defeats in their last two matches, which themselves had followed a 7-3 triumph against Binfield at the end of last month.

Bassett were below their best in the opening 45 minutes as Woodley took advantage to lead, courtesy of Callum Samuel-Harman’s goal on 26 minutes.

Hunter’s side picked it up after the break, though, and were on level terms with a quarter of an hour to go when Steve Yeardley equalised.

Substitute Ryan Withers fired the home side in front three minutes later and they held on to the lead to clinch a welcome three points.

Leaders Highworth Town were stung by an early goal at bottom-placed Highmoor-Ibis, but hit back to claim their 19th win in 22 league matches so far this term.

Jeff Roberts’ side fell behind as Aaron Deramma gave Highmoor the lead after only six minutes, but Kieron Gleed responded almost immediately and Wayne Turk’s strike shortly before half-time moved the Worthians into the lead.

Callum Parsons notched with 15 minutes remaining to wrap up the three points for Town.

Fairford Town found themselves returning home with nothing to show for their efforts as they came out on the wrong end of a 4-2 scoreline at Ascot United.

Having seen their run of three straight league wins ended at Lydney Town in midweek, Jody Bevan’s visitors found themselves 2-1 down at half-time.

Ben Harris fired Ascot in front after the quarter-hour mark but eight minutes before the break, Lee Smith restored parity for Fairford.

Trevor Mutero again put the home side ahead but in the second period, Callum Preece found the net to level once more.

However, Harris notched his second from a Samir Regragui pass and then wrapped up the points with his hat-trick strike.

There was little joy for local sides in Division One West, with New College receiving a 9-2 home hammering from Letcombe, an own goal and Biagio Mazzotta accounting for their strikes.

Shrivenham lost 4-0 to North Leigh United at Barrington Park.
