Kingstonian 2 Ashford Town 4

Tuesday 07th February 2006

Following on from their 1-0 win at troubled club Banstead Athletic on Saturday, one Ashford Town fan described their 4-2 win at Kingstonian last night as “the trouble with Ashford Town is that it is like a number 11 bus. You wait a year for an away win then two come along at once.”

The Homelands club moved three points clear of the Ryman League Division One drop zone following their convincing win at Kingsmeadow - thus ending the K’s three-month unbeaten run

Ashford’s top scorer, Joby Thorogood gave the Kent side a two-goal lead before an effort claimed by James Rose pulled thing back briefly for the Surrey side.

John-Paul Collier took on all-corners to restore the two-goal margin just before half-time.

Kingstonian, who drew Dover Athletic 2-2 at the weekend, pulled a goal back when talented Mazin Ahmad blasted home a fierce free kick in the last quarter before Collier again responded with devastating effect.

Ashford are, finally, fulfilling their potential and will be hoping to make it a hat-trick of wins when Leatherhead visit The Homelands on Saturday.
