Hellenic Premier Division Brimscombe failed to fire in a surprise 2-0 defeat at Thornbury Town.
Boss Sam Prior felt his team weren’t at the races: “A below-par performance and a deserved defeat today. No complaints that the best team on the day won.
Elsewhere, in Hellenic League Division One West, Chris Burns’ Stonehouse Town defeated Littleton 3-1 on the road. The Magpies had to come from one behind thanks to goals from Nick Humphreys, Lloyd Gardiner and Courtney Duffs.
Meanwhile, Shortwood grabbed the points in a 2-0 victory at Cirencester Development.
Captain Joe Tryner opened the scoring in the first half and sub Alfie Porter scored from the spot after winning a penalty in the dying embers of the game. Wood were missing injured top scorer Luke Soule, but welcomed back Joey Wilton for his second spell at the Nailsworth club.
Wood boss Matt Blythe was satisfied to pick up the points despite a far from convincing performance.
He said: “Very sloppy from us today in possession, but couldn’t fault the togetherness and spirit.”
