Justin Bennett grabbed his 250th goal for Gosport as Alex Pike’s men came from behind to take a highly creditable 2-1 victory at Oxford City in the National League South.

The home side took an eighth-minute lead through captain Darren Pond only for Rowan Vine to level for Borough seven minutes later.

With the game heading for the draw, Bennett popped up with the winner late on to continue their recent league revival and reach his remarkable milestone.

Goals from Howard Neighbour and Jamie Ford put the Rams in charge but they let it slip after the break.
