Faversham failed to build on their excellent start at VCD, instead slipping to a disappointing home defeat to Ramsgate.

Ramsgate outplayed Town for much of the first half and took full advantage of two defensive lapses to go in at half-time two goals to the good. And, despite a second half resurgence, Town left themselves with too much to do.

Ramsgate take the lead in the 18th minute. Jake Mackenzie drifts in from the right towards the D and through a series of half-challenges. MacKenzie gets a bit of luck when having lost the ball, regains it from a ricochet. A ball prodded through to Rory Smith at the back post and Smith clips home easily. Simon Overland berates his defence.

With the Lilywhites looking to respond, a moment of controversy. Sam Bewick plays in Liam King. King into the area, rounds the advancing Luke Watkins who appears to make contact with the Faversham forward. King attempts to stay on his feet - an open goal beckons. The referee awards no such penalty - and to add insult to injury awards King a yellow.

Matt Bourne from the left, middle of the park picks out Ryan Cooper who has stolen into the area. Cooper's half-volley from the corner of the area is a foot over the bar.

Dan Carrington plays a ball down the line for King. King steps inside George Crimmen and into the area. With the goal in sight, King just leans back as he strikes and over the bar it goes. King's frustration is clear.

With three minutes of the half to go and no immediate danger, Carrington is robbed of possession in defence. Two quick passes across the area into the path of Alfie Paxman who rifles a low, crisp strike into the far corner giving Overland no chance.

0-2 at H-T.

With the second half underway, Ramsgate squander two very presentable chances to increase their lead.

A quick ball forward finds Paxman and with just Bourne for company, Paxman's strike is just wide of the right hand post.

This time Paxman drifts inside from the left, across the area and finds Tom Chapman on the right hand corner of the area. Chapman's clipped shot is narrowly wide of the far post.

Danny Walder's free kick from the left touchline. Jordan Casey battles well to win Town possession and sets up Charley Robertson. Central, just outside the area and with a bit of space and time, Robertson's strike is over the bar. Chance.

With Town desperately in need of that piece of inspiration to pull themselves back into the game, George Monger steps up. Picking up possession from ten yards inside the Town half, Monger drives forward. Past one, two, three (maybe it was more). Evading another, inside, outside and finally to the edge of the box before unleashing an unstoppable right footer that nestles inside the left hand post. A goal to grace any game, at any level. A goal from the very top drawer.

With Town pressing, a free-kick is awarded 30 yards out and central. The comeback is almost completed. Walder's superlative free-kick is heading home just under the bar. Pace, power, direction. Watkins makes a stunning save to get a hand to it and force it off the underside of the bar and downwards. Casey crouches and heads the loose ball home.

The lino's unrepentant offside flag brings the Salters Lane celebrations to a very cruel close.

1-2 at F-T.
