Rebels fell to a 2-1 home league loss this afternoon

Ian Draycott and substitute Jordan Wright got the goals to send Rebels to a first league loss in three matches.

Zack Newton’s late strike gave Worthing some hope but in the end Folkestone held on for all three points.

Draycott got the opener on the hour mark as his deflected 20-yard free-kick beat Banks to give Invicta the lead.

Substitute Wright got on the end of Ronnie Docan’s through ball before firing home with five minutes left.

Newton’s strike on 90 minutes gave Rebels some faint hope of snatching an unlikely point but they couldn’t find a second as it ended 2-1.

Rebels travel to second-placed and place above Dorking Wanderers next Saturday.

WORTHING: Banks; Piper, Heath, Elphick, Metcalf; Axell, O’Neill; Newton, Jackson, Sparks; Pope. Subs: Hendon (Jackson), Fagan, Quirke (Piper), Edwards.
