IT was a case of the late, late show at Walmer Road as Kirkley put the icing on the cake with two goals in injury time against a very good Debenham LC side.

K&P however hit the post four times in the first half as well as seeing a Russell Stock header hit the crossbar. Kirkley won the corner count in the first 15 minutes but there was sustained pressure thereafter by Debenham with Jopling causing major problems with his well timed runs.

One of which on 28 minutes ended with Taz Grint making a last ditch tackle to prevent the visitors a goal. Keeper Johnson was tested by K&P's Chris Henderson who produced a one handed save just before the break.

Soon after the restart Kirkley won two corners and on 46 minutes a wicked inswinging flag kick by left back Lewis Blois was jabbed into his own net by Dale Vince.

Debenham thought they had scored midway through the half but a hand ball infringement ruled out the goal. Woodcock produced a reactionary double save from Jopling on 73 minutes and as the visitors pushed up looking for a share of the points, they left space which Stock exploited in injury time to set up midfielder Ian Dawson to blast home from the edge of the box.

An identical goal followed on 95 minutes via sub Liam Harvey-Cooper when put into the clear by Scott Manning, which after the first half shots that hit the woodwork made it a realistic scoreline.

K&P: Woodcock, Grint, Blois, Jefford, De Coteau, Dawson, Martin, Fox, Stone, Stock, Henderson. Subs: Manning, Harvey-Cooper, Tacon.

MoM: Nathan Stone.

Attendance: 171.
