Little Common Football Club has fallen into the relegation zone with four matches of the season remaining.
The Commoners dropped to second-from-bottom of the Southern Combination League Premier Division after Eastbourne United AFC went above them last night (Tuesday).
United won 2-1 at home to Peacehaven & Telscombe in their game in hand after scoring a precious late winning goal.

Common are now a point below United - who occupy the final safe spot of third-from-bottom - and fourth-from-bottom Arundel, but have a better goal difference than both.
The Commoners have lost their last five matches, but on paper they have a more favourable run-in than their rivals, with none of the top seven to play.
