Leone Gravata wants to “kick on” after helping Eastbourne Borough to a welcome win.

Borough beat Braintree 3-1 in Vanarama National League south despite a host of injuries which saw them name only four subs on this occasion.

Billy Vigar’s second-minute header, Fletcher Holman’s fourth goal in six games and Gravata’s clinical finish secured the points.

Gravata, who has scored three in three, said: “It feels really good.

“Finally getting the goals - that’s what I want to do.

“Hopefully it carries on and from now on we start kicking on and get more wins.”

Borough’s injury problems saw George Brown given a first start for the club in the unaccustomed role of centre-back.

Gravata said: “George had only trained once and he did brilliantly.”

Borough paid tribute to former chairman Len Smith, who died recently, both in the match programme and with a minute’s applause before kick-off.

Among the injury problems, there was some good news as striker Callum Kealy returned for a belated home debut.

Borough are at home again on Tuesday as Tonbridge Angels visit.

Worthing, whose game at Weston-super-Mare was called off, also have a home league game on Tuesday as they take on Dartford.
