Gosport Borough kept their push for the Southern League south & west play-offs on course with an impressive 2-0 home victory over Paulton Rovers.

First-half goals from Lee Molyneaux and Nathan Kirby were enough to give Alex Pike’s men a crucial three points against one of their promotion-chasing rivals.

Bognor also enjoyed a successful afternoon, hammering Burgess Hill 4-0 away.

The victory keeps the Rocks top of the pile in the Ryman League south.

In the Wessex League, a late goal condemned Moneyfields to their first defeat in 13 matches as they went down 2-1 against premier league leaders Winchester.

There was better luck for Fareham who overcame Romsey Town 3-1 at Cams Alders thanks to goals from Graham Lindsey, Ashley Tattersall and Liam Robinson.

And Dave Carter’s Horndean kept their survival hopes alive with an excellent 3-1 success at Totton & Eling.
