Kingstonian defender Matt Drage struck in the 96th minute to earn a dramatic 2-1 win over struggling Bury Town on Saturday and give Ks play-off hopes a major boost.

Bury had themselves levelled Charlie Knight's 54th minute opener in stoppage time before Drage headed home a Knight cross to claim all three points at Kingsmeadow.

Boss Alan Dowson's men, now only a point behind fifth-placed Maidstone with two games in hand, are unbeaten in their past six Ryman Premier League encounters, with four of those ending in victory.

Ks travel to Grays Athletic on Wednesday night with the race for a top five finish wide open.
