BUCKINGHAM Town remained bottom of UCL Division One after Harrowby United snatched a late winner to heap more misery on the Robins.

Having lost 6-0 to Harrowby the week before, Town improved drastically and will feel unfortunate not to come away with at least a point.

The opening 20 minutes were evenly contested as both teams struggled to get a grip of the game.

Eventually, though, Harrowby began to edge things and the in-form hosts created several chances with Jack Whyley going close before Carl Knox produced a string of fine saves to keep Buckingham on level terms at the break.

However, Harrowby finally found their finishing touch in a devastating two-minute spell at the start of the second half.

They took the lead through Wormall, who scored a superb volley, before Webb made it 2-0 within seconds.

But Buckingham fought back valiantly and halved the arrears when Drew Mitton struck in the 50th minute.

The visitors remained determined and – following several decent chances – deservedly levelled through Kyle Stimpson, who powered home a header.

But the home side edged the remaining 10 minutes and Wormall snatched a late winner with a header deep into stoppage time.

New Robins manager Daniel Kingston will take plenty of positives from the match ahead of tomorrow’s home encounter with Eynesbury Rovers.
