Baker off as Borough crash
Eastbourne Borough completed a miserable Bank Holiday weekend with a 3-1 reverse at home to Chelmsford City.
Having lost 3-0 at Welling on Saturday, injury-hit Borough offered little to cheer a crowd of 783 in a hugely disappointing display.
To complete their misery Darren Baker was sent off on 78 minutes for a second bookable offence and will now serve a one-match ban.
They were 2-0 down after nine minutes and never recovered. Ricky Modeste scored the first in the eighth minute with a low shot which squirmed underneath Rikki Banks and within 60 seconds Sam Cole inexplicably headed a Modeste cross into his own net.
Kenny Clark headed a third on 20 minutes, although skipper for the day Matt Crabb gave Borough a glimmer of hope two minutes later when making it 3-1.
Baker was dismissed 12 minutes from time for bringing down former Borough loanee Joe Benjamin.
