Cobbs sent off as Town crash 3-0 to Maidstone

Sonny Cobbs was sent off on a disappointing night for Eastbourne Town who crashed 3-0 to fellow high-flyers Maidstone last night.

Town were in trouble as early as the 12th minute when Cobb was sent off for a professional foul and Paul Booth converted the penalty.

Despite playing with 10 men, Town held on until the 75th minute when Booth fired in his second, and then Ian Draycott added a third goal for the visitors who now moved to second in the Ryman League table behind leaders Crawley Down with a game in hand.

Town, who travel to Corinthian Causals on Saturday, lie in sixth place, three points behind the leaders
