On their second venture to Surrey in two weeks, Tahj Bell and his Aylesbury United teammates secured a well-deserved win at Egham Town.
They had to wait until the 87th minute to do so and were then indebted to goalkeeper Bell’s miraculous save even later in the game.
Both sides had chances in the opening minutes, but it was Egham who edged into the lead with just eight on the clock when Josh Andrew had the freedom of the right flank to cross into the box, where the ball was missed by Bell and his defenders allowing Sebastien Castello to tap into the empty net.
It was a disastrous start by Aylesbury and it nearly got worse as the dominant hosts produced a slick passing move that released Danny Bassett but Bell was out quickly to save.
Captain Jack Wood might have done better when he shot wide of an open goal when Putman’s 25th minute corner was helped on by Greg Williams, and Aylesbury’s frustration in front of goal was further compounded as Stacey Field became the next man to miss an easy chance when Putman’s low shot came across the box to him but he fired over.
Still the procession went on, Williams releasing Putman whose shot was blocked behind, whilst another Putman shot matched by a very good save from Norris after he was played through, before a corner kick met by Bill Morgan and then Coulter looked to have crossed the line, but the vociferous Aylesbury appeal fell on deaf ears.
The second period started with a shot from the edge of the box by Frederick was comfortably held, before Egham showed some moments of threat as Bassett’s ball into the box was fired wide under pressure from Shane Wood by Castello, an then Bassett himself fired high and wide on the turn after Bell had only been able to punch at a corner kick.
But it was at the other end where the bulk of the action remained, but Aylesbury still had nothing to show for their efforts with Williams heading over a Putman corner, Bewley hitting a long shot over and from another flag kick Morgan met the ball, where it bobbled around in the box with Jack Wood just unable to profit.
Eventually the pressure had to tell, and in the 65th minute Aylesbury finally had the ball in the net – just! Good linkup between the front two saw Putman freed and although his shot was well saved, the ball broke to Field whose own effort looped up off a defender, hit another man trying to clear on the line before it at last found the net. 1-1
Egham tried to hit back and a dangerous shot in the box was kept out by a combination of Bell and the upright. Morgan then volleyed over in attack before sliding just wide of his own goal when employed in defensive action.
Three minutes from time and it was Aylesbury who claimed what turned out to be the winner. Substitute Shaun Owens, who had only been on the pitch seven minutes, produced a peach of a right wing cross where defender Danny Williamson could only head cleanly into his own net, with Putman lurking with intent.
Just before that Bell had a moment of uncertainty as the Bermudan spilled a low, bobbling shot only to be let off the hook by his defensive colleagues, but he made amends a minute from time with an unbelievable save, getting down with lightning quick reflexes to save from Haluna Masembe. A world class save, and ultimately a match-winning one.
With stoppage time approaching, Egham had finally come to life as they applied more heavy pressure in the shape of three successive corner kicks, which were generally well defended by Aylesbury.
Deep into the aforementioned stoppages, of which the referee from somewhere found five minutes to add on, Bewley made a superb defensive clearance, Andrew had a shot charged down, and Masembe was denied again when he was played through only for Bell to advance from his line and make another good save.

Lambe Scores in Win & Wells Out
Junior Brown stole three precious points with an 83rd-minute winner in Mansfield's 2-1 victory against relegation rivals Dagenham.
Mansfield had gone in front through Lambe 52 seconds into the second half only to be pegged back by Jamie Cureton's 250th league goal on the hour.
But Mansfield piled on the pressure, had two cleared off the line, and finally won it as they scored twice in a game for only the second time in five-and-a-half months.
A poor first half saw few chances with Dagenham looking the livelier and more inventive, almost scoring in the opening minute with a corner routine sent low to the near post where Scott Doe's cheeky backheel was straight to Lenny Pidgeley.
Mansfield had looked sluggish and nervous, but in stoppage time almost stole a goal a when Jack Thomas lifted an acrobatic effort over from close range.
The hosts made the perfect start to the second half as Mark Cousins parried Brown's cross straight to Lambe who tucked home.
Cureton brought Dagenham level on the hour after a succession of quick passes gave him the ball on the right from where he drilled a low finish in off the far post.
Cousins made a smart save to deny Oliver, then Doe had to head a goalbound Lambe shot away.
The pressure mounted and Ogogo headed off the line before Brown broke through on 83 minutes.
A long Callum Elder throw was laid back by Billy Kee for Brown to zip home a powerful 12-yard finish.
Tony Watt ensured Huddersfield manager Chris Powell suffered a nightmare return to former club Charlton as he netted twice in his side's 3-0 win.
Nahki Wells was not in the Huddersfield line up as he was ruled out with a shoulder injury.
Powell received a rapturous reception on his first time back to The Valley - and then watched man-of-the-match Watt tear his side apart.
Watt capped a fine display by netting two second-half goals to add to Johan Gudmundsson's first-half free-kick.
Powell left for ``footballing reasons'' in March of last year amid suggestions he did not see eye to eye with the Belgian owner Roland Duchatelet.
And the home supporters left their feelings known whose side they were on.
