Bottom side Cray Wanderers claimed a shock 2-1 victory at Ryman League Premier Division play-off hopefuls AFC Hornchurch on Tuesday night.

George Purcell gave the Urchins a half-time lead but Adrian Stone equalised and Paul Vines scored the winner with eight minutes left.

Maidstone United remain second despite a 3-1 defeat at East Thurrock that saw boss Jay Saunders criticise his team’s defending.

Two goals from Lewis Smith and a Neil Richmond effort condemned Stones to a ninth away defeat of the season, while Zac Attwood’s penalty reduced the deficit to 2-1.

Chatham Town claimed their sixth win in a row in Ryman League Division 1 North with a 2-0 victory at Tilbury.

Two goals in three minutes from Ade Yusuff and Lee Hales, early in the second half, secured the points as Kevin Watson’s team climbed to 13th place.

Striker Johan Ter Horst played for Folkestone Invicta, a day after completing his move to Premier League Hull City, in their 2-1 derby victory over Herne Bay.

Goals from Frankie Chappell and Chris Elliott gave fourth-placed Invicta a half-time cushion, with Joe Nelder replying for Bay just after the hour mark.

Sittingbourne suffered their second away defeat in four days, going down 2-0 at strugglers Three Bridges.

They trailed at the break to Tony Garrod’s strike and conceded again when Will Peauroux beat Adam Molloy shortly after half-time.

A penalty from Will Turl on 57 minutes saw Whitstable beaten 1-0 at Chipstead.
