John Cum­ber­batch gave new sign­ing Ryan An­drews his de­but on the right side of mid­field, and he was the first to cre­ate a chance for Ash­ford with a deep cross that flew inches over the head of Fen­wick.

Matata then un­hinged the West Sus­sex side’s defence with a mazy run on the half-hour, but he shot into the keeper’s arms from a tight an­gle with Hitch­ings per­fectly placed on the edge of the box.

How­ever, it was Hor­sham who landed a dou­ble blow to the Town’s cause with two goals in four min­utes.

Added to the dis­missal of Porter, Town faced an up­hill strug­gle but, to their credit, came out with re­newed en­deav­our in the sec­ond half.

Ge­orge Fen­wick and Joe Hitch­ings both fired shots wide be­fore Matata got the last touch af­ter a goal­mouth scram­ble to halve Hor­sham’s lead.

At the other end Hor­sham spurned a hat­ful of chances but the home side’s defence stood firm.

Town’s de­feat, cou­pled with Go­dalm­ing’s draw, means they are just one point above the drop zone.

Town are at home to Sit­ting­bourne on Satur­day and then at Croy­don Ath­letic on Tues­day.
