Another vital win in relegation fight

The first team picked up another vitally important three points yesterday afternoon as they won 2-1 at fellow strugglers Folkestone Invicta. The result leaves the Greens just one point from safety, although realistically when goal difference is taken into account, it is two points.

It was another performance full of heart, effort and desire, particularly in the second half, after Folkestone had taken a half time lead through Nathan Ferguson in the 37th minute despite the play being relatively even.

The Greens came out for the second half in determined move, and it took nearly half an hour for the equaliser to come when Khale Da Costa fed the ball into Kezie Ibe, who turned his marker and slotted the ball into the net.

Da Costa, who gave the home left back a torrid afternoon, was the provider for the second, which was converted by substitute Marcel Barrington with eight minutes to go. Reis Stanislaus had a chance to extend the lead go wide, whilst Keagan Cole was unlucky to see his lob hit the woodwork with the home keeper well beaten.

The focus now turns to the Easter weekend, when we are at home to Metropolitan Police on Saturday afternoon, and away at our old landlords Harrow Borough on Monday afternoon - both games kick off at 3:00pm.
