Darren Lok’s 90th minute strike saw Eastbourne Borough leave Cherrywood Road with maximum points.
Farnborough dropped points for the second game running after again being guilty of squandering their opportunities in front of goal.
A disappointing display by the home side meant they have only picked up 3 points from the last 12 available which in turn has seen them drop down to 10th in the league. Nic Ciardini brought a save out of Danny Potter when it looked like his free kick was heading for the bottom right corner that was the only bright point of a first half that lacked any real entertainment.
Marcus Moody came on in place of Olly Treacher at half time as Boro tried to find a footing in the game but fell well short of their nominal controlled display, maybe Eastbourne deserve some credit for stopping the flowing style of play the home supporters have been accustomed to watching this season . Farnborough introduced Reece Jones and Dave Tarpey into the action on the hour as they went in search of the first goal of the game but it was the visitors that went close to breaking the deadlock. Ross Worner produced a finger tip save from a Martin Hamilton’s effort to deny the visitors their first goal in Four games but that honour went to Darren Lok on 90 minutes .Just when it looked like both teams were happy to hear the final whistle Lok popped up in the box and was quickest to react to a knock down and fire his shot passed Ross Worner.
Spencer Day pulled no punches after the game and blasted his side’s very sloppy and lazy performance “This has to be one of the worst displays since I’ve been at the club and totally unacceptable the players are in tomorrow on Sunday for extra training.”
Next Saturday game against AFC Hornchurch is another big game in what is turning out to be one of the tightest season for many a year with only 10 points between 6th place and 19th place .
