Banstead Athletic 0 Farleigh Rovers 3

Farleigh Rovers went five points clear at the top of the table following their fifth successive league victory last Saturday.

Barry Regelous' in-form side dismantled Jack Johnson's clearly shell-shocked fourth-placed hosts after another blistering display, sticking to their game plan to stifle Banstead's playmaking midfield with the perfect performance.

This game's turning point came after only nine minutes when experienced referee David Crick adjudged that Foxes' returning left back Gary Webb had fouled Charlie Gillard inside the penalty area, but Gillard's resultant spot-kick went wide.

Farleigh made the breakthrough on 51 minutes when Liam Neaves' deep free-kick from the left being met perfectly by unmarked returning captain Adam Cassim, who powered home his far post header.

Success was secured for the visitors after 82 minutes when Webb, Martin Smith and leading scorer Javon Henry combined superbly on the left for substitute Ellis Burke to shoot home at the near post.

Two minutes later, Foxes' terrific team spirit was evident again when man of the match midfielder James Brown found Henry, whose audacious 40-yard lob dipped just under the crossbar, leaving keeper Jordan Knight clutching at thin air before the visitors' party resumed again.

Following ten additional minutes and an unusually late finish, Foxes continued their celebrations in the clubhouse afterwards.

Foxes face successive Saturday home games next, against Chessington & Hook United and Sheerwater at Parsonage Field for 2pm kick-offs.
