Royal Wootton Bassett Town failed to build on last week's win over league leaders Thatcham Town, falling to a 2-1 defeat at home against lowly Milton United.
After the high of toppling the league leaders, it was the frustration of falling to one of the early season strugglers for Royal Wootton Bassett Town as they slipped to a 2-0 home reverse at the hands of Milton United.
Their defeat to the visiting Miltonians came on an afternoon when Bassett's overall performance didn't necessarily let them down.
However, for all the play they had, they were unable to find the net, seeking too often to try and walk the ball into the net, while countless other chances went begging. If the game had lasted into Sunday, Bassett still probably wouldn't have scored.
Grasping the opportunity this presented, Milton made their hosts pay for their profligacy.
They went ahead on the half hour mark when Harry Dalton, latching onto a ball over the top and noticing 'keeper Luke Kuczynski off his line, smashed a stunning strike from range into the top corner.
Bassett were undone again late on as their desperate attempts to get back on level terms foundered.
Dalton again delivered the goal, putting away at the third attempt after the visitors tore through the home side's defence with seven minutes remaining.
