WOOTTON Bassett Town slipped a couple of places in the table as visitors Ascot United maintained their title bid at the Corinium Stadium last night.
Bassett fell behind when goalkeeper Steve Allison failed to collect Shaun Carter's header back, allowing Joe Gritt to slot home.
Half time substitute, Jason Milhench - back from a lengthy suspension - was then sent off for a rash challenge on Dave Hancock.
Bassett improved but were caught out by Arafat Kabuye's drive.
