View our gallery of Swindon Supermarine’s match against Slimbridge on Tuesday night, taken by photographer Jeff Youd.

Supermarine’s fine recent run which included fine wins against leaders North Leigh and away at Marlow, came to an end at home to Slimbridge.

Despite the chance to close the gap on Division One South West leaders North Leigh, Supermarine were behind after just 1o minutes.

A defensive mix-up between Marcus Schuster and Oli Bailey cost Supermarine dear as Paul Fahy nipped in to fire a shot into the top corner of Matt Bulman’s net.

Supermarine pulled level though within a matter of seconds when Ash Taylor’s pass picked out Luke Hopper who in turn set up Ash Edenborough to score from close range.

Taylor then head wide from close range before Josh Morse missed another good chance to give Supermarine the lead.

Ten minutes after the break Slimbridge retook the lead when Fahy scored his second at the far post.
Edenborough went closest to providing an equaliser for Supermarine but his shot was well saved.
Despite the defeat though Dave Webb’s men remain in third place in the league, just five points off leaders North Leigh.
