Dave Smith's Lydd Town have moved a point clear at the top of the KIL table following a combination of their 4-0 victory and a second successive loss for former leaders Hollands & Blair. A four goal spell in just 11 second-half minutes from Gary Lockyer, Matt Collins, Carlum Macleod and Ryan Norman saw the Lydders win comfortably against Crockenhill at Wested Meadow.
Meanwhile at Star Meadow the early dismissal of goalkeeper James Smith put Paul Piggott's Blair on the backfoot as
Sutton Athletic, who moved up into third place on the back of this result, took a two-goal lead through a Chris Mirlees penalty and Ryan Eldridge with 27 minutes on the clock. The home side fought back well after the break but only managed to pull one back through Fraser Rogers 64th minute header. 
At Holm Park
Sheppey United slipped a place to fourth after a 4-1 home defeat inflicted by Eltham Palace. Ola Kukoyi had put the visitors in front before the Ites had Carl Harold dismissed and Bradley Killick doubled the lead from the penalty spot. A second from both Kukoyi and Killick put Charlie McCarthy's team into an unassailable lead before Dan Bradshaw grabbed a late consolation for United.
A 90th minute goal from Jamie Williams, the only one of the game, secured
Seven Acre & Sidcup all three points at Meridian VP while a Peter Williams hat-trick helped Bearsted beat Glebe 3-1 at Otham Sports Ground, Quinten Conteh netting for the visitors.
Goals from Joe Goodwin and Stephen Wright saw
Bridon Ropes return home with all three points following a 2-0 victory against Gravesham Borough at Rede Court Road while Orpington enjoyed a goal-fest at bottom club Kent Football United, winning 7-0. Lekan Bakare led the way with a treble which was added to by Tim Beckford, Adam Steward, Luke Elliott and Elliot Thompson.
Finally Joe Adams was another to bag a hat-trick at Jockey Farm as
Rusthall hammered Lewisham Borough 6-0, Greg Walkiewicz (2) and Bobby Dixey were also on target.
