London Colney got back to winning ways with a 5-1 home win over Holmer Green, which ended with both teams a man short.
Stef Geraldes set the Blueboys on their way in the last night (Tuesday), meeting Dan Power’s cross perfectly, before James Ewington made it two from a corner.
The game looked like it would change when Power was dismissed for handling the ball on the line. Ben Allen converted the resulting spot-kick to bring Holmer Green back into it.
However, despite being a man down, Colney scored next, Ewington getting his second.
And the teams were soon back to equal numbers when Ben Heathers was sent-off for two yellow cards.

This win now moves them up to third spot in the league table.
