The 2-1 win ended in controversial fashion after Sami El-Abd had been sent off for an incident with St Albans sub Harvey Bradbury that resulted in the visitors being awarded a penalty - which Rocks keeper Dan Lincoln saved to preserve the three points.

It had been a feisty second half and full-time saw players and officials from both sides come together in a fracas near the technical areas, just in front of the main stand.

It was unclear what had actually sparked the trouble but happily no-one was hurt and the Rocks' stewards ensured calm was restored.
