Lydd Town narrowed the gap on Hollands & Blair to two points after coming from behind to beat the previously unbeaten leaders by the odd goal in three at the Lindsey Field. All three goals came in a nine minute second-half spell, Rob Denness headed Blair in front on the hour only for Gary Lockyer to level matters within two minutes. Then a decent Carlum Macleod strike won it for the Lydders.
A Baff Addae hat-trick, which was his second treble of the season and included two penalties, helped Sheppey United to an impressive 5-1 triumph against Seven Acre & Sidcup at SC Thamesmead. The Ites, who moved up to third on the back of this result, also saw Dan Patterson-Scott and Russell Jeffery hit the target while Josh Patrick hit the lone reply for Lee Hill's men.
Ben Youngs Sutton Athletic are now fourth after beating Crockenhill 4-2 at the London Hire Stadium. Goals from Daniel McCullock, Arlie Desagnes and Bill Palmer gave the home side a 3-1 advantage at the break and Luke Newman ensured the win in the 69th minute after Craig Hewitt had added his second of the game, from the spot, for the Crocks.
Glebe, playing for the first time under manager Simon Copley, have dropped to fifth after being beaten 2-0 at home by Gravesham Borough, Chris McDermott and Regan Payne scoring the all-important second-half goals.
Bearsted won 4-0 at Lewisham Borough where the scorers were Peter Williams, Ashley Russell (2) and Matt Garner while Meridian VP inflicted a first defeat on Eltham Palace. Gary Phillimore, Joe Neal and Richard Whyte were all on target as Richard Dimmock's side completed a 3-1 victory at Oxford Road, Ola Kokuyi grabbing a last minute consolation.
A double from Albert Akinremi was added to by Kamil Koltan as Bridon Ropes recorded their first win of the campaign, a 3-0 victory over Kent Football United. The result saw KFU return to the bottom of the table.
Finally an 85th minute effort from Adam Steward, the only goal of the game, earned Orpington all three points against Rusthall at Green Court Road.
