BRANDON Town were defeated at home to Spixworth United with a lacklustre display that showed how frustrating they have been this season.
They fell behind after six minutes when a cross was not dealt with by Corston and left Ghashut the simplest of opportunities to head into an open net.
Town immediately pressed for an equaliser and this came after 15 minutes when Leech seized on a shocking back-pass and finished well.
The visitors were gifted the lead within a minute as Whitlam scored directly from a free-kick in a seemingly unpromising position.
Corston then saved well and Williams headed off the line as the visitors enjoyed a strong 10 minutes.

Proctor drew the sides level after the half-hour mark as he let loose a rasping shot that hit the net before the keeper reacted.
Town then pressed for the lead and Williams saw his header cleared off the line.
With defensive lapses commonplace, more goals were expected in the second period but clear-cut chances were few. Leech hit his free-kick well over from a dangerous position and Peckham was unlucky to hit a post with his back to the goal.
Spixworth won the game with 20 minutes remaining as they broke from a Town throw and Hayton scored at the far post.
Peckham had the best chance to level but his header was straight at the keeper. As time ran down the visitors were stronger and looked more likely to score.
Overall, a disappointing display that was worrying as the team looked to run out of steam and ideas in the final quarter.
Meanwhile, Brandon Reserves went down to a very good Hemsby side 7-1, with Adam Poile getting the consolation for Town.
