St Albans City good form came to an end on Saturday with a 2-1 defeat at home to Maidstone United – but they gave the promotion chasers a real fright.

It was their first loss in five games and only their second reverse in seven and it keeps them in the relegation zone, although they remain just three points adrift of safety.

As has been the norm recently Saints shipped an early goal, Joe Healy putting Maidstone into an eighth minute lead.

But what has also been the norm is City recovering to hit an equaliser, and it came on 27 minutes from the Vanarama National League South Player of the Month, Louie Theophanous.

But an Alex Flisher goal six minutes into the second half consigned St Albans to defeat although it wasn’t for want of trying.
