Horsham's poor form continued as they fell to defeat against Egham Town at Queen Street.

Egham took the lead against the run of play in the 35th minute.

Home goalkeeper Ian Chatfield charged out of his area but failed to beat Youness Nabil to the ball. The winger crossed and Chris Geary headed into the empty goal.

Egham made it 2-0 on 44 minutes. John Kirby lost possession on the left and Tommy McCormick's cross evaded the Horsham defence allowing Geary to control the ball before drilling it home from 12 yards.

Geary completed his hat-trick on 72 minutes after being played through a static Horsham defence.

Richard Davies, recently signed from Bognor, scored a consolation for the Hornets five minutes from time when he powered the ball past Dave McCartney from the edge of the area.
