Maxwell holds his Leafe nerve from the spot

It took a last-minute penalty for Whyteleafe to take all three points off previously unbeaten Erith & Belvedere in the Kent League Premier Divsion.

Saturday's 2-1 win, which lifted Steve Griffin's outfit to eighth in the table, went some way to helping Leafe forget a 2-0 home reverse to Cray Valley the previous weekend.

Paul Scott, with his fifth of the season, opened the scoring in Erith just before the break before the hosts made their possession count with a second-half equaliser.

Then, with minutes remaining, Marlon Wallen broke the offside trap only to be upended in the penalty area and Louis Maxwell stepped up to bury the resulting spot kick.
