Tunde Aderonmu scored twice before half-time, with Steve Townsend adding a late third for the hosts.

Corinthian took advantage of Wells’ defeat to regain first place.

Having seen their perfect start ended by Sheppey United, they bounced back with a 5-1 win at Erith & Belvedere.

They were four up by the break thanks to Emmanuel Oloyede (2), Jack Mahoney and Frankie Morgan.

Oscar Housego added number five before Henry Dasofunjo’s consolation.

Sheppey, the only remaining unbeaten side in the division, moved up to third with Danny Leonard scoring the second-half winner in a 1-0 success against Lordswood.

There was nothing between Deal Town and Hollands & Blair as the sides played out a goalless draw at the Charles Ground.

Glebe made it back-to-back wins courtesy of early goals from Stacey Long and Eric De Melo in a 2-0 victory over Tower Hamlets.

Bearsted, who conceded five against Glebe on Saturday, responded with a clean sheet and three points as Jordan Ababio’s 73rd-minute strike saw off Crowborough.

Rob Brown scored an injury-time winner as Fisher edged AFC Croydon 3-2.

Fisher were on course for a comfortable win after goals from Tarik Ibrahim and Jamie Yila but Billy Murphy’s late double left it all square going into added time.

Fisher weren’t to be denied, though, with Brown on target in the 94th minute.

Chatham will go top on goal difference if they win at Canterbury tonight.
