They had to come from a goal down when the referee awarded a penalty midway through the first half and the forward drilled the ball past Chris Alder.
The home side had started positively with Jack Watts striking the bar and Craig Jones heading over from close range.

However the turning point came when captain Laurence Perkins was replaced by Nick Giles because of a slight hamstring strain.
Giles' impact was immediate: he added pace, energy, enthusiasm and bite into the midfield and it was he who burst through to level the scores just minutes after his introduction.
The Baros turned the game round five minutes before half-time when Dan Thompson's pinpoint free-kick was met by the head of new signing James Vercesi to make it 2-1.
Thompson himself had a golden opportunity to make it 3-1 on the stroke of half-time but his shot went high and wide when through on goal.
The second half belonged to the Baros and it was soon 3-1 when Giles grabbed his second. Bourton were handed a route back into the game when following an error of judgement from Paul Hockey they were awarded a second penalty to make it 3-2. However that did not derail the Baros and further goals from Watts, Giles, Vercesi and Craig Jones ensured that the match was never in doubt.
Vercesi completed a hat-trick on his debut, Watts made it three goals in his last two games and Craig Jones scored his first of the season. Giles was man of the match for his fine treble.
