Kingstonian 2-1 Margate
Kingstonian's fine home run continues with a hard-fought win against Margate.
Kingstonian moved up to eighth place in the Bostik Premier with a 2-1 victory over Margate.
After a first half that was more of a stalemate than anything else, the K's took the lead in the 53rd minute. A Tommy Brewer cross field pass was headed down by Alfie Doughty; the ball ran through to Muhammadu Faal, who crashed the ball home.
Margate equalised in the 71st minute when George Brown forced the ball home at close range, but K's stuck at it and claimed the win with twelve minutes to do when Muhammadu Faal's run ended with the ball running to Louie Theophanous, who scored from an acute angle.
This extended Kingstonian's fine home run of form to eight unbeaten games, but they will need to improve on their away form as soon as possible and have two opportunities in the next seven days with visits to Wingate and Finchley on Tuesday followed by Enfield Town next Saturday.
