Going into Saturday's crunch relegation tussle, Gosport had previously gone four games without scoring a goal, and that had to change if the BORO' were to get anything out of the game.
The defence had been praised recently & had only conceded two goals in the same last four outings, so the focus looked to be on the BORO's strikers to deliver.
Football's a funny game and after scoring three goals away from home, Gosport ship four goals to the Beaconsfield Rams and lose the game 4 - 3.
This was a game that the BORO' were desperate not to lose and needed to go for the three points on offer' especially against a team that sat just one place above them in the league.
Gosport made one major change in midfield, with new signing Ben Harding starting the game alongside Davis & Lanahan, after rejoining the club on Thursday night.
BORO' started the game well and forced a couple of saves from the Rams keeper, but it wasn't long before the home team came into it and took the lead through Jerome Eccleston 1 - 0
After a decent free kick from the half way line Beaconsfield went further ahead with Luke Neville heading home to make it 2 - 0
Gosport needed a response and pulled a goal back when the Rams keeper couldn't hold a goal bound effort & Tony Lee was on hand stab the ball home.
The first half ended with Beaconsfield 2 - 1 in front.
The second half got under way and the game continued to be an end to end affair with both sides fighting for everything.
Ryan Pennery once again was in the right place at the right time, to capitalise on a mistake by the home defence to put the BORO' level at 2 - 2
Just when Gosport needed to go on and chase the winner, the Rams went back into the lead with a goal by Brendan Matthew after being put through by the impressive Lossaso.
3 - 2
Charlie Lassaso was to cause the BORO' more damage when he sent a cracking shot over O'Flaherty in the Gosport goal to almost wrap the game up for the Rams. 4 - 2
After a red card dismissal for Beaconsfield's Reece Yorke, there was a furhter goal for the BORO' from Tony Lee but it wasn't enough and the game ended with the home side winning 4 - 3
This defeat leaves Gosport in a perilous position in the bottom three, with just six games left to play.
Time is running out for the push away from the danger zone that we are all hoping for.
