Margate recorded their fourth straight win in the Ryman League, Premier Division with a 5-0 success over East Thurrock United on Tuesday evening.

First half goals from Mark Corneille, Craig Cloke (pictured) and a brace from Kwesi Appiah gave the Blues a 4-0 half-time lead.

Skipper Cloke grabbed his second goal five minutes before the end to complete Gate's third five-goal winning margin of the season so far and take Chris Kinnear's men to 10th in the table.

Cray Wanderers let slip a 2-0 lead as they were beaten 3-2 at home by Billericay Town in a game where Wands' defender Allan McLeod received a straight red card for the second time in three games.

Leigh Bremner and Jack Clark scored for Cray.

Despite taking an early lead, Folkestone Invicta collapsed to a 5-2 defeat at Ryman Division 1 South leaders Dulwich Hamlet.

Josh Burchell had put Neil Cugley's Folkestone side ahead but they conceded five times before Darren Smith scored from the spot in the last minute to end a disappointing evening.

Faversham achieved one of their best results of the season with a 2-1 home win over Maidstone United.

The Lilywhites went two goals ahead but United struck back with an 81st minute goal from Sam Bewick to make for a tense finish.

Sittingbourne, beaten in their last two games, got back to winning ways with a 2-1 home success over Crawley Downs thanks to goals from Joe Goldsmith and Hicham Akhazzan.

Whitstable went down 3-2 at home to Worthing, who snatched a 90th-minute winner through Ryan McBride.

Stuart Vahid had given Justin Luchford's side an early lead but Worthing hit back to back lead 2-1 at the break through Darren Budd and John Lansdale (penalty). Damian Able looked to have earned Whitstable a point when he equalised 10 minutes from time, but it proved to no avail for the Oystermen.
