The lights went out in the 62nd minute with the side's separated by Sam Crabb's 42nd minute goal.

United were looking to follow-up their win against Saltdean United at the weekend with three points at the Trafalgar Ground.

Frustrated United boss Crabb said: "I thought we had a very good chance [of winning the game], we were competing very well and looked like we was going to get a second at that certain time of play."

Speaking on the Saltdean win, Crabb said: "Saturday was very good for us, especially keeping a clean sheet and being resolute for 90 minutes. We should of scored more but I’m very happy with the 1-0 win."

United have Saturday off before facing AFC Uckfield Town at The Oval on Tuesday night.
