A header from Jonathan Douglas, which goalkeeper Paul Jones got a hand to but could not keep out, condemned Town to a sixth straight defeat.

The Sussex side, who not long ago were eyeing a late play-off charge, are now just three points above the drop zone although they have two games in hand on most of the teams below them.

Gregory was left bemoaning Jones' error for the goal and said: "He got his hand to it but it slipped past him, but he's a top guy and made some excellent saves to keep us in the game.
