Kingstonian 3-2 Lowestoft Town

9 months ago By Kingstonian FC

Ricky Sappleton is the catalyst as K's come from behind to defeat 10-man Lowestoft Town.

Kingstonian won their third consecutive game, coming from behind in each one, with a 3-2 victory over Lowestoft Town, who were down to ten men for the majority of the game.

Dean Leacock was the man sent off, shown the red card for denying a goalscoring opportunity as Tom Derry tried to burst in on goal, but his team took the lead in the 35th minute when Ollie Humphrey struck a corker of a free-kick that evaded Rob Tolfrey and nestled in the bottom corner.

The lead lasted only seconds as, from Kingstonian's first attack after the kick-off, Kane Haysman back heeled the ball past former K's goalkeeper Ben Dudzinski (who had an outstanding game) for the equaliser.

Lowestoft started the second half quickly as in the 48th minute Jake Reed picked himself up off the floor after being fouled in the area and put away the resulting penalty.

The game turned on its head in the last quarter of an hour when Ricky Sappleton came on as substitute - two minutes later a cross from Jerome Federico was headed off the post by Sappleton, allowing Lewis Taylor to score the equaliser. Two minutes after that, almost exactly the same story except Sappleton buried the header into the bottom corner.

So K's win 3-2 for the second consecutive game and hauled themselves up to 11th place in the table. On Monday night they face another home fixture when Metropolitan Police visit Fetcham Grove for a 7.45pm kick-off.
