The long trip to current leaders Leiston FC was always going to be difficult for Burgess Hill Town, and so it proved with a 2-0 defeat.
Hillians created the first chance with a volley from Lee Harding after 10 mins. The rest of the 1st half Hillians defended well. Josh James was called upon to make two saves from long range.
The second half Hillians started brightly and a Lee Harding shot was well saved by Fire kept the home side in the game.
Hillians possession didn’t bring the rewards it should have done and were punished on 70 minutes with a goal from the impressive Blake
