Eight-man Moneyfields paid the price for an ill-disciplined second half as they lost 6-1 against Wessex premier leaders Salisbury FC at Dover Road.

The home side were still in contention when they had Conor Bailey and Tom Chapman sent off early in the second period.

Moneys gave a debut to full-back Dan Woodward, who followed new Dover Road manager Dave Carter from Horndean.

Carter was watching from the sidelines before officially taking over at the Copnor club today.

The hosts stunned the league leaders by taking a sixth-minute lead.

A corner was delivered from the right and the unmarked Jake Raine guided his header into the bottom corner of the net.

The home side lived dangerously as they managed to clear a succession of Salisbury corners.

The visitors levelled, however, in the 34th minute when Kane O’Keefe ran on to a terrific through ball and lifted his shot past Cameron Scott in the home goal to send the teams into the break on level terms.

Moneyfields continued to battle for everything at the start of the second half, refusing to let the visitors settle.

Their resistance was broken, however, in the 54th minute when Claudio Herbert chipped the ball across for O’Keefe to bury his header past Scott.

Soon afterwards the home side were reduced to 10 men when Bailey was sent off for a second bookable offence.

It was turning ugly at this point and in the 62nd minute Chapman received a straight red card for a tackle.

Down to nine men, Moneyfields faced a huge damage limitation exercise.

The visitors added four goals late on, though, through Sam Wilson, Tom Whelan, Ashley Jarvis and George Colson to complete the home side’s misery.

Debutant Woodward was sent off in the final minute for kicking the ball away to add to the home side’s miserable night.

In the Ryman League premier division, Bognor beat Farnborough 4-1.
