Windsor & Eton picked up another valuable point with a 1-1 draw at home to Banbury United.
Michael Chennells returned after his trial at Crawley Town to partner new signing Paul Robinson in attack.
The early going saw Banbury edge possession and their first effort came courtesy of a David Staff free kick which was flicked on by Adam Learoyd and put wide by Delroy Gordon via a block from David Woozley.
Windsor then got into the game and two efforts from David Pearce saw one go just over the bar and the other just wide of the post.
Banbury were then handed the perfect opportunity to take the lead when Justin Clayton clipped Nabil Shariff earning the visitors a penalty.
Jason Taylor stepped up but Delroy Preddie did well to save low to his right to keep the scores level.
Windsor broke away again soon after and neat passing between Chennells and Parsons almost netted the Windsor winger a goal had it not been for Joe Murrell.
A good save at one end was followed by a better one at the other when the ball found its way to David Staff on the edge of the area and his effort was superbly turned away by Preddie.
Windsor made a strong start to the second half with Robinson hitting wide in the opening couple of minutes.
Just moments later and Windsor took the lead when Chennells set up Pearce on the edge of the area where he slotted past Murrell.
The lead should have been doubled mid-way through the half when Robinson put Chennells clean through only for Murrell to deny Windsor's top scorer.
Banbury did manage to draw level moments after Windsor should have wrapped up the points when Staff got down the left and his low cross was turned in by Joe Coleman.
