Lowestoft staged a late comeback to secure their first home win in the league since August as they came from behind to defeat Kings Langley 2-1 at Crown Meadow.

Goals from Jake Reed and Travis Cole secured three crucial points for the Blues, who moved out of the bottom three, after Stephen Ward had fired the visitors in front early in the second half.

The evening turned sour for Ward late on when he was given his marching orders after an altercation with Andrew Fisk.
