Rivals Wingate & Finchley suffered a 3-1 defeat to Bowers & Pitsea after being reduced to 10-men.

Lewis Manor immediately scored from the spot- his sixth of the season, to give the hosts the lead at the break- and a second spot kick, also converted by Manor.
Manor then showed he didn’t only score from twelve yards, making it three and grabbing his hat trick on sixty seven minutes, and whilst Junior Mubiayi got one back for the Blues four minutes from time that was how it finished.
