Enfield Town tumbled further down the Bostik League Premier Division table after a 2-1 defeat at Kingstonian consigned them to a third consecutive defeat.

Stunning goals from Aaron Lamont and Delano Sam-Yorke either side of half-time put the home side in control, with Dan Rumens’ header not enough to spark a comeback.

Joe Wright returned in goal for the Towners, with Joe Payne, Jay Porter and James Mulley also coming in, while Josh Davison partnered Bilal Sayoud up front in place of Kezie Ibe.

The home side dominated all of the early possession, meaning it took seven minutes for Town to mount their first real attack, but Billy Bricknell’s effort from the edge of the area went just wide.

A similar passing move shortly after saw Mickey Parcell cross to the near post bit his delivery was easily dealt with by Rob Tolfrey.

The K’s then went up the other end and opened the scoring in glorious fashion when Lamont picked up the ball from about 40 yards, took a touch and unleashed an unstoppable effort that flew past Wright into the top corner.

Rumens found himself in possession deep in Kingstonian’s half on 38 minutes and slipped the ball into Bricknell whose shot was deflected out for a corner, which Sam Youngs headed over the bar, and Davison also headed over the bar shortly after when he got on the end of Porter’s delivery.

The 1-0 scoreline at the break was by no means disastrous, but it got worse just five minutes after the restart when Rumens lost a 50/50 ball on the edge of the area to Sam Yorke who then managed to volley over Wright to double the K’s lead.

Lewis Taaffe was the next Town player to have a chance when he chested down Porter’s excellent cross, but he scuffed his final effort into the keeper’s hands, and Bricknell spurned another opportunity not long after when his tame header was kept out.

The pressure was all one way as the game neared its conclusion, with Enfield pushing to try and get something from it, and they finally found the net with 14 minutes to play when Sam Chaney curled in a perfect free-kick for Rumens to flick home and spark a nervy final period for Kingstonian.

Ibe and Wright both had chances towards the end that were kept out by a now resolute K’s defence, and Youngs had the final opportunity to draw his side level but found a home defender in the way of his effort.

The final whistle ensured a first win in 14 for the hosts who move up to 14th, while Enfield drop to 11th.

The Towners next face AFC Hornchurch on Wednesday in the final of the Velocity Trophy before hosting Carshalton Athletic in the Bostik League Premier Division on Saturday.
