Players were getting sloppy and began to grow frustrated with each other. The half-time whistle concluded a scrappy half.

But, in the second half, AFC Southwick came back fighting with early chances and near misses.

An opposition equaliser rattled the home team, but Ross Myers found the net directly from a corner to restore the Wickers' lead.

Lindfield equalise almost immediately after a deflected cross came off the chest of Louis Pople.

But, six minutes later, Rickie Mitchell, saw his powerful shot from outside the area smack the right post and rebound into the net.

Myers was named AFC Southwick's man of the match for the third consecutive game.
