RIDGEONS League leaders Lowestoft Town survived having two players sent off at Ely to win 2-0 and maintain their six-point cushion at the top of the Premier Division.

After Gary McGee had given the Blues a 36th minute lead, Lowestoft's Ross King and Ely's Peter Hinde clashed following a challenge and both players were sent off.

Russell Stock doubled the visitors' advantage on 67 minutes, but 12 minutes from time Jamie Stokeld also saw red. Nine-man Lowestoft however comfortably held on to their lead to claim the points.

Over the bascule bridge, there was little Christmas cheer at Walmer Road as CRC completed the double over Kirkley & Pakefield and inflicted Nick Shorten's men's first home league defeat with a 3-1 win.

Lowestoft lad Blain Hudson - a former Norwich City Academy starlet who was part of the successful Benjamin Britten High School team during their National cup run - put CRC ahead before Nathan Stone equalised on 40 minutes. But second half goals from Jordan Patrick and Luke Berry condemned Kirkley to defeat.
