HIGHWORTH Town dropped three points on Saturday as Basingstoke ran riot in the concluding 15 minutes to reverse a two-goal deficit into a one-goal lead.

Jeff Roberts’ men only had themselves to blame as they slipped to their fourth defeat of the season having previously accumulated 10 points from their opening seven fixtures.

The game started well for Highworth, Leon Morrison struck from eight yards out following a corner from the right to hand the visitors a lead on 13 minutes.

Shortly before half time, Highworth made it 2-0 as Edgey Mbunga struck from distance – at this moment the points were seemingly in the bag given Roberts’ side had earlier struck the post and had an effort cleared off the line.

But this didn't prove to be the case.

Despite starting the second half brightly, Town conceded three times in the game's final quarter-of-an-hour.

Basingstoke struck from a corner on 75 minutes before equalising with two minutes of normal time remaining.

Then, in added time, Robinson netted the hosts' winner to stun Highworth as they lost 3-2.
