Danny Mills scored twice for Dulwich Hamlet as they inflicted The Sports' first home defeat of the season

Eastbourne Borough suffered defeat for the first time at home under Lee Bradbury as Dulwich Hamlet moved into second spot in the National League South after a clinical display at Priory Lane.

Danny Mills scored twice in the first half to put the visitors on course for victory, and despite an improved second half performance, a stoppage time goal from Reise Allassani wrapped up the points.

The visitors started on the front foot, with Kieran Monlouis forcing Tom Hadler into a smart low save, before Kieran Khinda-John did well to clear a dangerous Nyren Clunis cross.

Borough then had a great chance to break the deadlock when Tobi Adebayo-Rowling’s cross from the right picked out Charlie Walker in the middle, but his header was brilliantly turned away by the diving Ashley Maynard-Brewer.

Hamlet then broke the deadlock after a short corner routine eventually saw Aaron Barnes whip the ball in and Mills shrugged off his marker to head past Hadler.

And the striker doubled his side’s lead before half-time after Clunis beat Kristian Campbell down the right, and his cross found the marksman in space at the far post to head beyond the Sports keeper.

After a double substitution at the break, Borough came out with intent in the second half with Walker going close before Dean Cox had a free-kick blocked.

Lee Bradbury’s side were then denied by the woodwork as Mike West’s free-kick picked out Khinda-John, but his header came back off the bar with the keeper beaten.

However, Dulwich would have the final say as substitute Allassani, making his return to the club after a loan switch from Coventry City, raced clear in stoppage time and fired past Hadler.
