Mangotsfield let lead slip away at Hungerford
MANGOTSFIELD are still looking for their first league victory of the season after going down to defeat at Hungerford.
Manager Richard Thompson was without Charlie Rich, Matt Thorne and Marcus Duharty, with Todd Winter, Joe Turley and Josh Klein-Davis coming into the starting line-up to replace them.
Mangotsfield took a 12th-minute lead through skipper Neil Arndale, pictured, who netted from the penalty spot after Hungerford's Mark Hughes was sent off for a foul on Mike Whittington.
Mangotsfield should have increased their lead when Tom Parinello set up Todd Winter, but he failed to hit the target.

On the half-hour, Winter was brought down as he broke into the penalty area by goalkeeper Paul Strudley as he attempted to go round him, but the referee deemed it to be a dive and booked him.
Hungerford equalised in the 37th minute when Mangotsfield keeper Danny Greaves could only parry a shot from Ben Pugh and the ball fell to Mark Draycott, who scored from close range.
Mangotsfield went down to ten men in the 65th minute when Nick Dunn was shown a second yellow card and then it needed a brilliant save from goalkeeper Greaves to stop the home side going in front. However, the game turned Hungerford's way in the 75th minute when Mangotsfield's Sam Teale handled in the penalty area and Draycott scored from the penalty spot.
Mangotsfield face another hard game tonight when they host eighth-placed Merthyr Town .
