Just like the previous game, the Ites made plenty of changes – one enforced with a hamstring injury ruling out Jack Midson so Junior Aikhionbare was tasked with leading the line. Billy Bennett captained the side.
Kennington were presented with the first opportunity of the new half – a poor back pass went beyond Molloy for a corner. The resulting cross was pushed over by the keeper for a second corner kick, which he gathered from the air once the ball came over.
Helge Orome went on to shoot wide and also head an attempt from a corner off target before a series of yellow cards came out as tackles and fouls topped-up. A finger tip save by Molloy on 78 minutes denied Kennington an equaliser with a follow-up corner nodded away by Sains.
With the game getting close to full-time Taurean Roberts struck the post and then Mant done well to deny Bennett moments later – but the Ites done enough to grab another three points and continue their unbeaten start to the league campaign.
