WIMBORNE Town suffered their first defeat of the Southern South & West campaign as they were sunk 4-2 at Didcot.

After the Magpies' Toby Holmes had a goal disallowed, Didcot forged ahead midway through the first half. Sam Elkins's long ball found George Reid and he sped away from defenders before rifling past Gerard Benfield.

The lead was doubled within moments, a teasing cross into the box being put into his own net by Jack Lovell.

Wimborne earned a lifeline when Dan Cann slotted home after being set free by Luke Holmes and the away side then hit the post on the stroke of half-time.

After the restart, Toby Holmes spurned two presentable chances and in between Elkins's attempted clearance hit a Wimborne player and bounced against the bar.

The equaliser finally arrived when skipper James Stokoe bundled across the line from close range but Didcot restored their advantage after Benfield failed to grasp Seth Humphries's long-range shot and Reid blasted in off the bar.

Matty Woodley ensured victory late on with a sublime free-kick from the edge of the area which gave the statuesque Benfield no chance.
