Late drama cost Gosport Borough their unbeaten away record this afternoon.

They lost 1-0 at Whitehawk’s Enclosed Ground in the Vanarama Conference South, thanks to Jake Robinson’s winner in the dying minutes.

There was better news for the Hawks, though.

Lee Bradbury’s side bounced back to winning ways in the league with a deserved 2-1 win over Eastbourne Borough.

First-half goals from Bradley Bubb and debut-making Ben Wright sealed the points for the home side in the south coast derby.

A late goal for the visitors produced a tense finish but the Hawks held on.

A James Fisher own goal, plus strikes from Alex Parsons, Ollie Pearce and Doug Tuck, handed the Rocks victory.

A Brad Potter goal on 72 minutes handed Tunbridge Wells victory in their FA Vase third-round clash with AFC Portchester at Wicor Rec.

Meanwhile, in the Wessex League premier division, leaders Moneyfields continue to set the pace.

Miles Rutherford’s side defeated Bournemouth Poppies 5-0 thanks to Steve Hutchings’ double and efforts from Tom Chapman, Dan Gauntlett and Lewis Fennemore.

Petersfield ensured they remain second in the table following their 4-2 win at home to Fareham.

Andy Todd (2), Dan Woodward and Warren Hunt were the Rams’ goalscorers.
