IN the battle of the unbeaten Ridgeons League sides, it was Lowestoft Town who emerged victorious in front of more than 650 fans at Crown Meadow.

The Blues beat fellow high-fliers Leiston in a closely-fought north Suffolk derby on Tuesday night.

In a game that kept the watching crowd on the edge of their seats, there was an early sending off, a disallowed goal and a Lowestoft winner in the last few minutes.

Micky Chapman and Ady Gallagher's men, despite having a one-man advantage after Leiston keeper Jamie Stannard was sent off after just two minutes, found themselves a goal down before equalising in first half added time through Ali McKenna.

And after a competitive second half, which was interrupted by numerous bookings, The Blues moved three points clear at the top of the table as they inflicted the first defeat on Carl Chenery's Leiston with a stunning late volleyed winner from Ross King.
