Kings Langley’s winless run has stretched to a fifth game in all competitions after they were beaten 3-0 at home by Poole Town.

Steve Conroy’s side were playing catch up after falling behind early on and after being unable to get back on terms, their fate was confirmed by two goals in the final stages of Saturday's clash.

The defeat means Kings remain third from bottom in the Southern League Premier Division South table, three points below Swindon Supermarine.

Poole took the lead after five minutes when an attack seemed to have broken down, but Jez Bedford was on hand to score an opportunist goal for the visitors.

The hosts then matched their opponents with their passing approach creating chances for Mitchell Weiss and Rene Howe and the opening half drew to a close with Dolphins skipper Jamie Whisken clearing off the line.

Town continued to look dangerous, particularly out wide and Alex Tokarczyk was called upon to to produce a superb flying save to deny Corby Moore.

Kings piled on the pressure as the game entered the last 10 minutes, with one run from Weiss ending with a shot that was deflected to safety at the last.

But Poole always looked to have that extra edge and took advantage of the home side’s search for an equaliser with two goals in the last three minutes, netted by Steve Devin with a long shot and Sam Griffin from a defensive error, to give the scoreline a somewhat harsh look from the home side’s point of view.

Kings Langley: Tokarczyk; Connolly (Ward 71), Osborne, Johnson, Adebiyi; Wade-Slater, Hitchcock (Collier 80), Coldicott-Stevens (Syme 46), Syla; Howe, Weiss. Subs not used: Toiny-Pendred, Cook.
