Heartache for the Lobsters late on at Leg O'Mutton Field.


Gavin Gordon's men headed to the Leg O'Mutton Field looking to build on the win over Balham two weeks previously. 9th placed Cobham stood in the way of the Reds moving up to fourth.

Redhill started brightly in the chilly conditions, Michael Campbell shrugging off two defenders before seeing his shot go just wide. The home side started to get a foothold in the game, but it was somewhat against the run of play when they took the lead on 31 minutes, after a knock down a strike found the bottom corner, and the home side led at the break.

It didn't take long for the Lobsters to draw level after the break, a Campbell cross fell to Steph Joseph who fired home to make it 1-1. There wasn't to much to chose between the sides after that, but Cobham led again on 67 minutes and three points looked like a tough ask for the Reds.

Just when it looked like the Lobsters were heading for defeat Joel Vian popped up with three minutes to go to equalise. It seemed as though the visitors would at least secure a point. Unfortunately for the Lobsters it wasn't to be, Liam Sallis was sent off in injury time, Ashley Snadden was tasked with donning the gloves and when Cobham were awarded a penalty in the 95th minute he couldn't be the hero and the Lobsters were beaten.
