Gosport kept up their relentless pursuit of Southern League premier division promotion after a 2-0 win at Redditch United.

Goals from Rory Williams and Dan Wooden made it 23 league matches unbeaten for Alex Pike’s side and kept them firmly in the play-off hunt as they moved up to fourth.

Williams struck in the first half for Borough to take his impressive goal tally to 10 since rejoining the club from Hamble, before Wooden doubled their advantage after the break with a fine team goal.

In the Wessex League premier division, Moneyfields imploded in a 4-2 loss at home to Alresford.

The hosts took the lead through Stuart Green, before Dave Hook saved a penalty.

Alresford levelled after the break but Warren Hunt restored Moneyfields’ lead.

The sending off of Steve Hutchings for two yellow cards - the second for kicking the ball away - proved crucial, though, as Alresford equalised and then grabbed two goals in the final minute to steal victory.

Horndean came away from Romsey with a 3-1 success thanks to goals from Alex Miroy, Louie Castles and Jack Warren.

Fareham were edged out 2-1 in an entertaining tussle with Totton & Eling at Cams Alders, Bryn McKie grabbing their equaliser before the visitors’ winner in the second half.

And in the Ryman League premier division, Bognor crashed to a shattering 5-0 defeat to Hampton & Richmond - their heaviest of the season - as hopes their poor run was behind them were dashed at a flat Nyewood Lane.

A superbly-taken first-half hat-trick by Ryan Moss effectively had the game sewn up within 39 minutes and the Rocks, who’d played well enough for most of that first period, never looked like staging any sort of comeback.
