Wycombe Wanderers had to come from behind to beat Staines Town 2-1 at a warm and sunny Wheatsheaf Park.
A young Blues' side sprinkled with experience found themselves 1-0 down after only six minutes when the Swans' Reece Hall acrobatically volleyed home the opening goal.
Richard Logan had two great chances to level the game before half-time but the summer signing saw his first effort well-saved before squandering the second.
Matt Bloomfield was the player the locals were asking about at the break after a first-half performance that was head and shoulders above anything else on show.
The same players started the second-half and Logan made it third time lucky when he headed home a Grant Basey cross to level the score after 49 minutes.
A mass substitution on the hour mark gave the Blues an even more youthful look, but it was to herald the most exciting period of the game when plenty of chances were created by both sides.
Good work from keeper Matt Ingram and some last-ditch defending was enough to thwart the Swans, while at the other end Josh Scowen won the game for Wycombe when he rose to meet another Basey cross and planted his header in the back of the net after 83 minutes.
Two trialist were on show, one was former Forest centre-half Karlton Watson who coped comfortably throughout the game, while the other was a diminutive midfielder who worked hard and got stuck in but whose name I didn't catch.
For me, the pick of the second-half performances came from first-year pro Emmanuel Ighorae who looks like a real prospect.
Next up for the Blues is Luton away on Wednesday evening and the frequency of games can only be a good thing when you overhear opposition fans expressing their surprise at the amount of timber some of the Wycombe players are still carrying.
Ingram, Ehui, Watson, Johnson (Hause 60), Basey, Oli (Trialist 60), Kretzschmar, Scowen, Bloomfield (Ighorae 60), Morais (Angol 60), Logan (Taylor 60)
