Late agony for Chippenham
CHIPPENHAM TOWN 2 REDDITCH UNITED 3
Chippenham's miserable run continued after yet another stoppage-time goal condemned them to defeat.
The Bluebirds' last victory came on the first day of December against bottom-of-the-table Kettering.
This defeat to second-from- bottom Redditch leaves the Hardenhuish Park outfit perilously close to the drop zone having played more games than all the teams below them.

Chippenham twice took the lead – they opened their account just before the half-hour when Alan Griffin placed his headed effort beyond Redditch goalkeeper Bradley Catlow.
However, the Bluebirds conceded an unfortunate equaliser ten minutes before the break.
Ben John did well to reach Will Richards' low shot, but the ball stuck in the mud and, in attempting to clear for a corner, Greg Tindle thundered a shot into his own net.
The Bluebirds regained the lead just past the hour mark when centre-back Alex Kite, who had come on for injured player-manager Nathan Rudge, headed home after the Redditch defence had failed to clear a free-kick.
The Bluebirds appeared to be heading for three points before a fine piece of individual skill by Jermaine Hylton ten minutes from time restored parity.
Hylton then fired wide of an open goal in the ninetieth minute before he supplied a low cross in the second minute of stoppage-time for Richards to slide in the winning goal.
