Ok, I went to court, and the judge found 100% in my favour, which is a result! My solicitor wasn't expecting this at all, so she was very happy. I was awarded just over £1,300, which is great news, but now the hard job starts with actually recovering this from the other party.
For now, though, I am just pleased that the judge found in my favour. He totally rejected the statement that the defence made, and stated that he preferred my statement, and that of my witness (there were 2 witnesses, but one hadn't provided a proper statement, so it wasnt included in his deliberations).
