Folkestone Invicta dropped back into the Ryman League Premier Division drop-zone despite an excellent 1-1 draw at title-chasing Bury Town on Saturday.

A first-half penalty from Darren Smith (pictured) put Invicta ahead in Suffolk but the hosts levelled 27 minutes from time

Wins elsewhere for Hastings United and Aveley saw Invicta drop two places into the relegation zone by a point - though they have a game in hand over Hastings.

Maidstone United's woes continued with their eighth defeat in nine, going down 1-0 at home to title-chasing Lowestoft at Homelands.

The Stones are yet to win at home in the league this season and have taken just five points from a possible 48 infront of their own fans.

They bounced back from conceding nine in the previous two games with an improved defensive display but conceded the only goal to Jamie Forshaw seven minutes after half-time.

Second-bottom Maidstone are five points from safety having played more games than the sides above them and their goal difference means they are effectively six points behind.

Tonbridge Angels came from behind to earn a 1-1 draw at promotion rivals Kingstonian, but slipped to fourth in the table.

Paul Vines gave the Ks a 37th-minute lead but a stunning 30-yard strike from substitute Jake Beecroft earned a point 12 minutes from time for play-off chasing Angels.

Cray Wanderers secured their first win in a month with a 2-1 victory over Concord Rangers.

Tony Dolby flicked the opener on 66 minutes and Leigh Bremner doubled the advantage four minutes later, rendering Tony Stokes' late strike a mere consolation.

The Wands are three points and three places out of the play-off places but do have a game in hand.

Margate suffered a 3-0 defeat at Tooting & Mitcham to slump to 16th and fall within 10 points of the relegation zone.

Against the run of play Jamie Byatt opened the scoring from distance just over 20 minutes from time and inside five minutes Mike Herevrin headed in from the Terrors' only corner of the game to make it 2-0.

Tyron Sealey added the third in stoppage time.
