MARGATE snatched an 85th minute win­ner as they over­came table­top­pers Dul­wich Ham­let at Harts­down Park, a win which moved the hosts to within four points of the play-off places.

In a tight and tense af­fair, Kane Haysman stole vic­tory for the Blues in front of an im­pres­sive crowd at Harts­down Park.

In an even open­ing ex­changes nei­ther team were able to cre­ate a clear cut chance as both sides can­celled each other out.

Jor­dan Chiedozie and Haysman went clos­est for the hosts, both with head­ers.

The sec­ond half started with the vis­i­tors look­ing more de­ter­mined to break the dead­lock.

And Nathan Green and Nyren Clu­nis both forced ‘Gate keeper Sam Sargeant into fine saves.

Both sides con­tin­ued to can­cel each other out with Ham­let sub­sti­tute Ash­ley Carew go­ing clos­est with a free kick that Sargeant was again equal to as the clocked ticked down.

The hosts fi­nally broke the dead­lock when the ball fell to the feet of Haysman in the penalty box and he made no mis­take by driv­ing his shot low past Ham­let keeper Pre­ston Ed­wards.

How­ever, the vis­i­tors could have grabbed an equaliser right at the death as Green’s low driven cross was hacked off the line by Gate de­fender Tom Wyn­ter. STAR MAN: Sam Black­man (Margate) EN­TER­TAIN­MENT: ★★★★★
