TWO late goals gifted Mile Oak Rovers a surprise win against table-toppers Earlswood last week.

Wayne Boyce set up Richard Maguire who opened the scoring on 25 minutes for the visitors after Adam Holland had missed a glorious opportunity moments before.

But in the 44th minute Earlswood keeper Tom Hemmings was sent off for fouling the Mike Oak centre forward who slotted away the resulting penalty kick.

After the break ten-men Earlswood held firm until the 57th minute when Mike Oak took the lead but against the run of play Andy Keenahan equalised with just ten minutes remaining.

The visitors thought they had scraped a point out of the game but two late goals saw them suffer only their second defeat of the season.
