It wasn't to be a happy 500th appearance for club captain Jack Wood as, having battled back from 3-1 down to 3-3, the Ducks contrived to throw away any hopes of points as they lost a rollercoaster game 4-3.

Aylesbury started well with yet another early goal courtesy of Ty Deacon giving them a fifth minute lead.

But they weren't to stay so clinical as a host of chances went untaken and the woodwork struck twice, whilst some suspect defending allowed the hosts to turn the game around to 2-1 at the interval.

The Ducks weren't getting a lot of joy at the start of the second half, but then drew level with two very similar goals out of nothing by Sonny French and Ollie Hogg.

But then came disaster as a howler at the back saw James Weatherill softly beaten for a fourth time and this time, try as they might, there was to be no comeback.
