Horsham 1 Herne Bay 2
Bay rip up the form book to stop Horsham's winning run
A superb solo goal from Liam MacDevitt was enough to secure Horsham all three points as Dom Di Paola’s squad returned from Kent with an important win that helps lift them to sixteenth in the league table.
Despite trailing to Oliver Lee’s strike mid-way through the first half, the visitors leveled five minutes before the break, when George Landais reacted to punish goalkeeper Simon Overland’s spilled catch.
Horsham grew more during the second half, but it took the introduction of MacDevitt to secure the points would head back to Sussex, when within two minutes after coming off the bench, his blistering run from the halfway line resulted in him cutting inside and unleashing a shot beyond the Faversham goalkeeper to earn a 1-2 away win for The Hornets.
