Rylands Way, 21st September 2010
Wootton Bassett Town's return to league action was not a happy one after two quick-fire goals midway through the second half proved the difference against Kidlington, who triumphed 3-1 at Rylands Way.
Prior to that funny few minutes, Dave Turner's side had been more than in the game, and it appeared as though at least a point could be snatched against their high-flying, free-scoring opponents.
The visitors took the lead on the night early in the opening period when Christian Perkins made no mistake following a mistake from 'keeper Stewart Thompson.
However, Bassett pegged their opponents back in style with half time looming when a stunning strike from Terry Adams levelled the scores.
And they were in the ascendancy after the restart until a Jordan Parker strike against the run of play dealt the hosts a hammer blow. Soon after, Thompson once again had to pluck the ball from the back of the net when Parker beat him once more.
After suffering their second league defeat - and only their third in all 13 competitive games played so far this season - Bassett's honeymoon period in the Hellenic Premier Division seems over.
Tough days (and nights) were bound to occur this season, but it is now up to Turner's side to once again demonstrate the character that has served them so well since he took over.
Things don't neccessarily get any easier though with the next three league games coming against three of last season's top five, beginning with a trip to Wantage.
