Chippenham narrowly went down to defeat in Sussex after the home side made the most of hitting the Bluebirds on the counter.
The home side started the brighter as on loan Swindon Town keeper Will Henry saved Dean Cox’s shot and then dealt with Marvin Hamilton’s cross/shot.
Eastbourne took the lead on nineteen minutes when they broke quickly and Charlie Walker held off a challenge to fire across Henry.
The hosts almost doubled the lead when they again broke from a Bluebirds corner but Cox’s shot was blocked.
Chippenham equalised just after the half hour as Karnell Chambers found Matt Smith whose shot came back off a post for Curtis McDonald to tap home his first goal in a Bluebird shirt.
Both sides had chances to grab the lead before the break as two free kicks from Josh Smile saw Nat Jarvis head wide from close in whilst a second saw Chambers fire over.
At the other end Henry came out on top in a one on one with Lloyd Dawes and then turned Walker’s follow-up over the bar.
The second half saw fewer clear cut chances as midway through the half Walker hit an Eastbourne free kick over the bar.
The winning goal came from yet another breakaway after a Chippenham corner was cleared with Kane Wills’s low cross causing havoc in the Bluebird area and substitute Yemi Odubade, who had been on less than a minute, drilled the ball home in the seventy fourth minute.
Four minutes later substitute James Guthrie’s cross went just beyond the reach of Chambers whilst nine minutes from time Smith’s goalbound effort saw Sergio Torress throw himself at the ball to block.
