Two goals by Ollie Pearce - the second in the fifth and final minute of injury time - saw Bognor through to a promotion play-off final against old rivals Dulwich Hamlet, which will be played at Nyewood Lane on Monday afternoon.

It was a nervy night at the Lane as the Rocks first of all struggled to get the breakthrough against Wingate then failed to hold on to a 1-0 lead, something that had cost them dear in the title race just five days earlier.

But just as extra time loomed, Pearce popped up with his second to send the Nye Camp into raptures.
