Two injury strikes from Richard Fogelman boosted L'Equipe promotion hopes in a thriller against promotion rivals Catford.

L'Equipe took a deserved lead early in the second half through Jon Kay, who played his best game of the season so far.

Catford had a good 10-minute spell, but rarely threatened the L'Equipe defence and scored a wind-assisted goal.

The match was locked at 1-1 - an own goal for Catford and Jon Kay for L'Equipe, before Fogelman took centre stage with a penalty and another cool finish.

L'Equipe joint-manager Josh Lewis told JC Sport: "We absolutely dominated the game throughout. Their stand-in keeper was outstanding - making several good saves. There were also some debatable decisions and we probably could have had two penalties before Fogelman was brought down again in the last minute.

"Catford are good bunch of lads, but they let themselves down with their reaction to the penalty and after it - making some disgraceful tackles, which in my opinion should have been red cards and treating the ref with complete disrespect. Their captain should've calmed it down, but was instead berating the referee along with the others until the final whistle and after - not something you want to see in Sunday league football.

"Overall we're delighted with the result, which keeps us in the race and look forward to another tough game against Loughton next week, who are also in good form."

Fogelman told JC Sport: "With a stag do next weekend (I'm away all weekend and will miss the game) I was worried I may not get any goals for two weeks and suddenly kicked into life!"
