The Bourne, 17th September 2011
Wootton Bassett Town's hopes for a fourth consecutive league victory were dashed by their hosts Hook Norton, who grabbed a second half equaliser to secure a 1-1 draw.
The Oxfordshire side, who sat just a place below Bassett before play began, have been the draw specialists in Division One West so far this season, and this was their third such result in their first seven games.
Matt Bown gave Dave Turner's side the lead from the penalty spot prior to the break. All four of the midfielder's goals this season have come from spot kicks, having netted from twelve yards previously against Trowbridge Town and twice against Milton United in Monday's Floodlit Cup victory. However, James Robbins would equalise shortly before the hour.
Despite featuring Sam Collier, who was available due to Abingdon United's FA Cup commitments, Bassett were unable to fathom a second agaisnt their hosts, whose confidence was high after taking Premier Division Wokingham and Emmbrook to a replay in the FA Vase lasr week.
The result, albeit slightly disappointing, sees Bassett maintain touch with those sides currently above them - all of which have played more - in what is becoming an extremely open season.
And it is one of those sides who Bassett face next Saturday as reigning champions Headington Amateurs visit Rylands Way in a rescheduled fixture.
