St Albans City staged a dramatic comeback to beat Burnham at The Gore.

Playing on a difficult pitch, the Saints were blown away in the early stages of the game as they fell two goals behind within five minutes of kick-off.

The comeback started before the break when James Comley scored his second goal in two games with a strike from 25 yards, but not before Paul Bastock had stopped Burnham adding a third with a great save.

The tide turned in the second half and John Frendo smashed home a volley to level the game in the 55th minute.

Needing a win to close the gap on the top three teams, James Kaloczi duly obliged 13 minutes later with a goal of the season candidate.

Kaloczi’s goal sealed the win and three points for City as they jumped up to fourth on the Southern League table.
