BASINGSTOKE Town’s current losing streak continued, as they were beaten 2-1 by Dorchester at the Camrose.

On a day more suited to ducks, the visiting Magpies scored their winner three minutes into added on time.

The first 45 minutes of the contest was as dull as the weather, with few clear-cut chances.

As early as the fifth minute, Zidane Akers looked to have released Sam Smart in on goal, but Smart’s touch was too heavy, and the chance disappeared.

Dan Collier and Sam Deadfield then combined for Sam Argent, but his effort was deflected wide.

Dorchester’s Cameron Morris then saw his shot hit the back of Harry Philby’s head sending it into the arms of Colm McAdden.

As the half ended, the home side suddenly got a grip of the contest.

Jack McKnight played the ball out wide to Smart and his cross saw Argent fire just over.

Then in added on time at the end of the first 45 minutes, Town were unlucky not to score.

Firstly, Smart’s shot was blocked and went out for a corner.

From this Smart’s cross to the back post found George Bennett and again was blocked for another corner.

From this Dan Bayliss rose well at the back post and his header was tipped over Alhaji Segay.

The half-time whistle was then blown, before Town could take a third corner.

The opening goal of the contest arrived on 66 minutes, as Argent for the first time in the contest, had some space to work with.

He fed the ball to McKnight, who dinked the ball over Segay off the underside of the crossbar.

The home side fans had barely finished celebrating, when the visitors levelled 90 seconds later.

Sub Josh Williams was the provider for Aaron Rodriguez to drill the ball home.

With 10 minutes to go Town’s sub Ben Wright tried his luck with a low shot which Segay pushed around the post.

Then with four minutes left the home side were reduced to 10 men after McKnight could no longer continue after being caught in the face and they had used all their three substitutes.

As the game went into added on time, Rodriguez tested McAdden, before Murray fired home the winner with a low shot which went in between goalkeeper and post.

A very disappointed Basingstoke manager Jason Bristow said after the game: “We are miles away from where we should be. Our passing and defending was poor and we have conceded two bad goals. We are in a bit of a rut now and have to get ourselves out of it quickly.”

Next up for Town is a league trip to Met Police on Saturday.
