SOUTHERN League Division One South leaders Wimborne Town were edged out 2-1 at Cribbs.

It is just the second time this season Tim Sills’s charges have been beaten in a league match.

The Gloucestershire-based outfit opened up a two-goal cushion, before Harry Morgan pulled one back late on for Wimborne.

Sam Griffin and Cam Munn were brought into the starting line-up and Wimborne started brightly, against their newly-promoted opponents.

But David Duru’s pace was causing the visitors problems, goalkeeper Ross Flitney alert the first time, but powerless to prevent Duru’s effort just before the interval.

Griffin came close to equalising early in the second half, before the lead was doubled on 57 minutes.

Duru found space on the right, cutting back for Harris Feltham, whose deflected shot looped up and over Flitney.

More chances began to fall the way of Cribbs, with Daniel Stoneman and Duru going close.

The introduction of Jamie Johnston off the bench sparked the Magpies back into life and they equalised on 87 minutes.

A corner reached Munn, who fired back into the danger area where Morgan was on hand to turn in.

Wimborne launched an assault on the Cribbs goal. Sam Jackson had a shot blocked, while Munn’s effort deflected onto the post as the hosts held on.

There were some unsavoury scenes at full-time near the Wimborne dugout, with a flurry of cards brandished.

The win lifts Cribbs up into a play-off position.

Poole Town’s Southern Premier South game against Walton & Hersham was called off due to an unplayable surface at BlackGold Stadium.

Magpies: Flitney, Hanger, Walker (Roberts, 71), Cocklin, Jackson, Neale, Morgan, Griffin (Johnston, 80), Beale, Munn, Baker (Lovell, 63).

Unused subs: Arnold, Griffiths.
