Wily Old Woodstock Hold Bassett in Check

Rylands Way, 24th August 2010

Wootton Bassett Town twice surrendered leads as they were held to a 2-2 draw by Old Woodstock Town in an entertaining, face paced encounter at Rylands Way.

With less than quarter of an hour gone, the deadlock was broken through Alex Green, who headed home from close range following a Sam Collier flick on for his sixth of the season.

However, the lead was shortlived as the visitors scored from the spot through Adam Doyle a matter of minutes later. 'Keeper Stewart Thompson was the guilty party as he hauled down an advancing forward, yet it was a dubious decision given that it was his momentum that caused the foul, the striker having already shot at goal.

But on the stroke of half time Collier put his team ahead once again with a cracking 20-yard effort that flew into the far corner following a pass of equal quality from Terry Adams.

With the momentum, Bassett asserted control of the game following the restart. As the match drifted into the latter stages though Old Woodstock once again equalised with a well worked goal, with Doyle providing the finish to complete his brace, after Dave Turner's side failed to kill the game off.

The balance of the game then shifted in the Oxfordshire side's favour, but resoulte defending from the hosts preserved a point and their unbeaten league record.
