Smith snatches late win for Hornchurch
Romford suffer fourth defeat in a row
Lewis Smith was the late hero as Hornchurch came from behind to beat Ryman Premier Division rivals Margate last night.
Urchins, without a goal in their last three outings, found themselves 1-0 down with 13 minutes remaining, after Lawrence Ball’s 37th-minute effort had given Gate a first-half lead.
But Tommy Black fired the home side level and Smith popped up with two minutes left to seal all three points for Jimmy McFarlane’s men.
There was more disappointment for Romford, however, as they fell to a fourth successive defeat.
