A 1-1 draw away against Brimscombe and Thrupp brought Royal Wootton Bassett Town's three game losing streak to an end.
Despite not coming away with victory, Royal Wootton Bassett Town can be satisfied with the point they earned away against Brimscombe and Thrupp.
More than anything, the result provides welcome relief after a testing series of three consecutive defeats saw Rich Hunter's side lose what had previously been a comfortable position in the top half of the table.
The result ensures Bassett remain above their Gloucestershire rivals, who continue to find it difficult to get one over a side they have faced more than any other during their time in the Hellenic League.
Following an uneventful first half, which was most notable for the handful of yellow cards dished out in the absence of any malicious tackle, the two goals the game would produce arrived in a matter of minutes shortly before the hour mark.
Dan Bailey got the opener for the visitors, taking control of Sam Packer's neat lay off before steering a low drive beyond the grasp of Lewis Skyers.
Brimscombe hit back immediately though, and they did so in style, as Ben Prictor picked out the top corner with an outstanding strike.
The pair of goals seemed to spark the game into life, and the closing stages of the game saw both teams come close to grabbing a winner.
With twelve minutes remaining, Jack Smith headed narrowly wide for the hosts. Three minutes later, Skyers pulled off a great save at the other end to deny Bailey his second of the night.
Then, with just five minutes remaining, Ollie Pitt worked his way past the Bassett defence before being denied by both the crossbar and a fantastic stop from Curtis Meare.
Brimscombe did perhaps shade it as the clock counted down to full time, but Bassett can be happy with the valuable point they were able to preserve.
