AYLESBURY FC had a player sent off for the fourth game in a row as they came from behind to beat relegation rivals Fleet 2-1 at home on Saturday.

Nearly 150 people watched on at the Affinity Stadium as FC recovered from Callum Burch’s 73rd minute strike with goals from Brian Haule a minute later and a dramatic last gasp winner from Ryan Blake.

FC had been playing against 10 men for a large portion of the match after James Pilgrim was given his marching orders in the 25th minute.

But they too were reduced to 10 men, debutante Aidan Chavies sent off after moving his head towards an opponent on 65 minutes.
