A SECOND-HALF comeback was not enough to secure three points for Swindon Supermarine as they were held to a 2-2 draw by Kidlington in Southern League West this afternoon.

Dave Webb's side failed to register a victory for the second successive festive match - following their 4-2 Boxing Day defeat at Cirencester Town - as the Oxfordshire side registered a point at the Webbswood Stadium.

The afternoon started poorly for Marine as they fell behind in the opening moments as Anaclet Odhiambo before home skipper Zac Westlake required treatment for a head injury.

The hosts could have been back on terms just before the half-hour mark when Ryan Campbell met a cross from Joe Selman but his header came back off a post.

However, Marine turned the game on its head in the second half as they scored twice in quick succession.

Firstly, Campbell met the ball at the back post to fire home the equaliser before Josh Parsons finished after more fine work from Campbell three minutes later.

Kidlington though, were back on terms after the hour mark as Declan Benjamin fired home from outside the area.

The visitors had Harry Whitehead sent off for a second yellow card and Campbell went close to a winner but honours were even.

It's now four defeats in a row for Chippenham Town in National League South after they slipped to a second 2-1 defeat to Hungerford Town inside a week.

The Bluebirds had lost by the same score in Berkshire and paid the price for a poor first half at Hardenhuish Park as Stefan Brown netted, then blasted home the second moments after missing a penalty when Alex Wall was felled by Chippenham skipper Greg Tindle.

Substitute Josh Smile gave the home side hope in the second period when he fired him from a free-kick but the Bluebirds lost Will Richards to injury and had Gary Horgan limping to the final whistle as they failed to get back on terms.
