Horsham’s season plunged to new depths with a heavy defeat away at bottom of the table Three Bridges.
In a reverse of the scores when the sides met in early December, the hosts ran out 4-1 winners to pick up only their fourth league win of the season as Horsham’s response from their poor mid-week showing at Walton Casuals failed to materialise.
A Bridges side with a number of familiar faces inflicted most of the damage in the first half to lead 3-0 at the interval.
Abou Touray gave the hosts an 11th minute lead and soon after former Hornet Williams Peauroux doubled their advantage following more unconvincing Horsham defending.
Touray scored his second three minutes from half time with a goal on the break to leave Horsham with an uphill task in the second half.
That task seemed a little easier when Horsham debutant Jordan Clarke’s purposeful run was halted by Marlon Maxwell inside the area and Nwachukwu pulled it back to 3-1 from the spot.
But a second penalty, this time for the hosts ten minutes from time sealed Horsham’s fate, Peauroux netting his second of the game from 12 yards after James Brockhurst was adjudged to have fouled Romone McCrea.
This latest poor result made it eight games without a win for a Horsham side in free-fall who stayed 18th in the Ryman South table.
