Guernsey FC came from two goals behind to beat Chipstead 3-2 and end their five-game losing streak in the Isthmian League Division One South.

The Green Lions were 2-0 down after 15 minutes as Dan Moody scored twice, the second from a controversial penalty.

But top-scorer Mark McGrath got one back soon.

Glyn Dyer levelled when his 73rd-minute cross was deflected in and McGrath got the winner with nine minutes to go, before Guernsey had two late red cards.
