Lee went closest in the final minutes, striking the woodwork with a clever free kick.

Kingstonian 1-2 Tonbridge Angels
A late free kick from Martyn Lee was not enough to salvage any points against new league leaders Tonbridge Angels tonight, after debutant Loui Fazakerley was gifted goals in the 1st and 69th minutes.

Live scores direct to your mobile
After an absence of at least two years, we're pleased to announce that you can now sign up to receive goals and other updates from K's matches direct to your mobile. So if you can't get to the game, and if you're not going to be in front of a computer, you can still keep in touch with the latest score.

The service is being run in conjunction with livescores.co.uk and you will need to open an account with them to make use of this service. Once you've done that, head over to the sign-up page (you might need to log in again) and tick the boxes alongside which messages you want to receive.

Please note: you will receive three free credits when you open an account, but you will need to buy some more (they cost 25p or less each) if you want to get goal alerts as the defence isn't doing too well at the moment...

Another note: if you are going to a game, you will be able to turn the messages off for that afternoon/evening, so that you don't end up spending money on messages that tell you what you've just seen!

Any problems, please let us know at the usual address.

A last minute goal from Kenny Ojukwa ensured the score finished level in a topsy-turvy match today.

Fleet had taken a first half lead before headed efforts Tony Reid and Julian Sills swung the game in K's favour with an hour gone. James Mann and Eddie Smith took advantage of lapses at the back to tuck Fleet back into the lead before the late rally.

The line-up is available here.

Three first-half goals from Croydon Athletic gave the visitors an impossible task for the second period. Tony Reid did manage a debatable goal for K's, but it proved to be just a consolation as the home side ran out clear winners.
