Hamilton Antonio gave Casuals a tenth-minute lead but another double by Jimmy Muitt, who is now the top scorer in the league, helped the Rocks claim the three points.

Muitt tucked away a penalty on the hour to give Bognor the lead after Tommy Scutt - who had replaced Josh McCormick at the start of the second half - had equalised five minutes earlier.

Muitt made sure of the win with a late third for the visitors, who move back up to fifth, ten points behind leaders Dorking.

Bognor host Tonbridge next Saturday.

In the Southern Combination premier, Chichester City - like Bognor - had a second-half comeback to thank for a 2-1 win at Broadbridge Heath.

George Cousins put Heath ahead on 16 minutes but it was Scott Jones on 55 minutes and Josh Clack on 90 who earned City a win that leaves them two points clear at the top, with closest rivals Newhaven only drawing at Little Common.

Pagham put six past Loxwood at Nyetimber Lane, despite it being goalless after an hour.
