Larges Lane, September 4th 2010
Wootton Bassett Town's record this season is no longer unblemished after a disappointing 3-0 defeat at Bracknell Town.
The damage was done shortly after the restart when the hosts scored twice in a minute. Neil Hanson broke the deadlock as he stooped to head home a free kick, before a Sam Whiting stunner doubled the advantage.
Shortly after both sides were reduced to ten men following an altercation between Shaun Carter and Dean Thomas. Bracknell then had another man sent for an early bath when an elbow on Richie Carter saw Sam Dennison dismissed.
However, Dave Turner's side failed to reap the benefits of their numerical advantage, and Whiting grabbed his second of the game late on with a cool finish after Bassett were caught on the break.
In the opening half, Bassett - playing down the notable slope at the recently relegated side's ground - had the better of the game. Sam Collier was denied by the post following good build up play by Alex Green.
Green then forced a save from the home 'keeper after rising highest to meet a corner on the stroke of half time.
The loss was Bassett's heaviest league defeat since April 2008, and Turner will be expecting a response when his side host Bracknell's tenants Wokingham & Emmbrook on Tuesday night.
