A superb save half way through the second half by Khalsa’s substitute goalkeeper Mihai Gherasim effectively won the game for the visitors as they pursue third spot in the Midland Football League.

In a match played on an impressive surface but with significant winds affecting play, it was Khalsa who created the best chances in the game.

But it took Gherasim’s save – after the keeper had come off the bench following an injury to James Pemberton – to prevent a Long Eaton equaliser on 70 minutes.

The goals for Khalsa were from Craig Bannister – his 40th of the season – and Matty Gardner – his first for the club.
