It`s tight at the top of the Bostik League South table as both leaders Lewes and second-placed Cray Wanderers won on Saturday, leaving the Rooks a point clear.

And both won 1-0 – Lewes thanks to a late 88th minute goal from sub Ronnie Conlon at Chipstead, who had defender Saidou Khan dismissed for two bookings 10 minutes from time.

Cray were made to scrap for their win at Footes Lane against lowly Guernsey, with Michael Power`s 52nd minute effort silencing the majority in the 607 crowd.

There`s a four-point gap between the top two and third-placed Greenwich Borough, who also needed just one goal, courtesy of Jack Barham after 74 minutes at the DGS Marine Stadium against mid-table Herne Bay.

Carshalton Athletic, Corinthian-Casuals and Walton Casuals occupy the other play-off places and have a six-point cushion on seventh-placed Phoenix Sports.

Carshalton beat lowly VCD Athletic 4-1 at Oakwood with goals from Ola Sogbanmu with two, Mickel Miller and Tommy Bradford all in the first half and, with a Bobby Price own goal just past the hour-mark being the only response.

Corinthian-Casuals were held to a goalless draw at King George`s Field by eighth-placed Hythe Town, who played the entire second half with ten-men following the dismissal of Jordan Johnson-Palmer right on the interval whistle.

Neighbours Walton Casuals made no mistake in beating third-bottom Ashford United 4-0 at the Elmbridge Xcel Sports Hub, thanks to a Josh Kelly brace, Sean McCormack and Tyrell Richardson-Brown – all in the second half.

Phoenix Sports kept in touch after winning 2-0 at bottom side Shoreham with goals from Jack Barry after 32 minutes and Jeff Duah-Kessie 11 minutes from time.

Molesey have sunk to second-bottom after being deducted three points and losing 2-1 at Faversham Town, whose Harry Stannard bagged a brace in the 55th and 72nd minutes – all after Dre Grobler had given the visitors a 4th minute lead.

East Grinstead Town moved up to fourth-bottom, thanks to a 1-0 win at College Lane against Ramsgate, with Will Hoare`s 69th minute strike proving decisive.

Kane Rowland bagged both of Sittingbourne`s goals as they beat Hastings United at Woodstock Park, while Chris Smith had South Park ahead after 32 minutes at home to Thamesmead Town.

Jake McIntyre equalised 5 minutes into the second half and Park had defender Dean Lovegrove sent-off with a straight red just past the hour-mark.

But the ten-men won, thanks to Jack Mazzone in the 74th minute.

Horsham won 2-0 at Church Road against Whyteleafe in the day`s other game – Toby House after 28 minutes and Jack Hartley on 62 minutes being the Hornets` scorers.
