Three first-half goals and a fine goalkeeping performance ensured Town's recent good run continues.

A first half in which both sides created chances. Crucially the Lilywhites were in clinical mood in front of goal. At the other end East Grinstead found Simon Overland in imperious form.

Town are first to threaten. George Monger sends in a deep delivery from the left that clears the stretching Daniel Smith in the East Grinstead goal. Carl Rook arrives at the back post, connects, but directs the header just wide. Not an easy ball to take, but early chance.

A ball through the middle releases East Grinstead's Oshaye Giraud-Hutchinson with a run in on goal. As the East Grinstead wide man approaches the Town area, Matt Bourne gets back to exert some pressure. Giraud-Hutchinson snatches at the chance and it's always curling away from the far left hand post.

Bourne from the half-way line turns provider launching a direct ball into the East Grinstead area. Again the keeper sees the ball go over his head, this time on the bounce. Luke Griffiths in close attendance can't quite make a telling connection before the ball runs out of play.

East Grinstead break quickly. Andy Ali is realeased into the right of the area, Overland comes out quickly, narrows the angle and paws the shot away with strong right hand. Great stop.

Faversham are awarded a free-kick on the left. Danny Walder takes, Oliver Lee leaps and gets a faint touch towards the back stick into the path of the onrushing Rook who emphatically smashes it home from within the 6 yards box. (1-0 after 18 minutes).

Undeterred, East Grinstead launch another quick break. Ali sprays the ball right for Jordy Mongoy on the left and Mongoy heads for the Town area. Again Overland comes out quickly, narrows the angle and saves the low, sharp strike with his legs.

Town counter quickly and move the ball to Mark Lovell on the right touchline. Inside to Griffiths who rolls a square ball into the six yard area and into the path of Dan Carrington arriving at pace. With the home crowd just awaiting the formalities of a bulging net before acclaiming a second Town goal, over the bar it goes.

But the wait for that crucial second goal is short. Chris Barnard from the right, clips a ball forwards. Carrington with back to goal and on the edge of the area chests a ball down into the path of Griffiths whose sumptuous first time hit gives Smith no chance. (2-0 after 27 minutes).

East Grinstead continue to break quickly. Oshaye Giraud-Hutchinson pulls a ball back into the area for Leo Mazzone. From 12 yards Mazzone hits a powerful strike straight into Overland's midriff. Crucially, the Town keeper not only saves but gathers.

A sweeping Faversham move sees Carrington clear up in defence and bring the ball out. Rook makes himself available and returns it back into the path of the still advancing Carrington. Carrington cuts through the East Grinstead defence and finds Walder. Walder tries from distance but despite an awkward bounce, safely gathered by the keeper.

From a Ryan Cheek throw the ball finds it way to Barnard who in the area turns and shoots, but it's loops off a defender for a corner. Walder delivers a low corner, it's allowed to travel unhindered across the face of goal before Bourne arrives to apply the necessary sidefoot from close range. (3-0 after 42 minutes).

3-0 at H-T.

Early in the half and a corner for Town. Walder from the right. Lovell heads backwards to the back post where Bourne connects with the header. The fourth goal is being suitably acclaimed before the realisation sets in that it's the wrong side of the post. Close.

And that early chance was Town's best chance of the half. Town elect to protect their three goal advantage.

Mongoy finds a ball to release Karn Miller-Neave into the area. The rising shot hammers the outside of the post.

Monger spreads a ball wide for Ernest Okah. Okah beats his man and delivers a low centre. The keeper makes an important interception with Lovell ready for any loose ball.

East Grinstead however, haven't given up on the game. A break down their right a ball delivered into the area and Mazzone volleys home from 12 yards. (3-1 after 72 minutes).

Town switch off and substitute Will Hoare is allowed a shot at goal from the D. The shot is dragged wide.

Giraud-Hutchinson takes a punt from just outside the area. A nasty deflection and Overland dives to his left to concede the corner. Another fine save.

With East Grinstead pushing for that vital second goal, Town break. Lovell gets possession on the right touchline and finds Rook who in turn releases Griffiths in on goal. Griffiths cuts inside but this time drills his shot wide of the far post.

With time against East Grinstead, Tan delivers a cross from the right. Mazzone's point blank header is brilliantly saved by Overland.

3-1 at F-T.

A fantastic result on the back of the midweek result.
