In an entertaining and end-to-end first half, United took a 1-0 lead on 19 minutes, thanks to Blair Anderson’s well-placed shot into an empty Carlton net, after some good link-up play from Kyle Dixon and Reuben Wiggins-Thomas had left a rebound to fall perfectly for the winger.
A determined Town side then went on to dominate much of the second half but it looked like United were going to hang on for the win until two scrambled, injury time efforts on 93 and 95 minutes, saw the visitors steal the glory with a 2-1 victory.
Basford now have less than 48 hours to plan a return to winning ways, with a Bank Holiday Monday trip to Rugby Town awaiting (3pm kick-off).
