Ten man St Neots Town suffered a third successive defeat last night.
The Saints had Mat Mitchel-King dismissed in the first half of a 3-1 loss at Chesham as their wait for a Southern League Premier Division victory went on.
Top-scorer Tom Meechan did fire them ahead midway through the opening period, but Mitchel-King soon received his marching orders after collecting a straight red card after referee Adam Williams deemed he had struck Chesham veteran Barry Hayles in the face with an arm.
The hosts hit back before the break and struck two further goals to claim victory in the second period after being reduced to 10 men themselves.
Saints dropped to 16th place as a result of their latest disappointment. They remain 10 points off the play-off spots.
