Lewes comfortably saw off promotion rivals Greenwich Borough with a professional performance in the glorious sunshine at The Dripping Pan.
Darren Freeman made two changes from the side that drew at Thamesmead Town with Jamie Brotherton returning from injury to replace the suspended Omar Lawson, whilst Jonte Smith was given the nod up front instead of Billy Medlock.
Having enjoyed a two-week rest due to last week's game being postponed, the Rooks came out of the traps raring to go and it took less than 150 seconds for them to open the scoring as Charlie Coppola nipped in between McEntegart and McGeehan as they dithered on the edge of the box and calmly slotted the ball into the empty net.
Jamie Brotherton, quiet for the first half an hour then burst into life, beating his marker time and time again although he wasn't able to get a final ball in. The one time he did get the ball into the danger area, Smith finished calmly but was adjudged to be offside.
The second half started with the low sun shining right into the eyes of the Greenwich keeper, but the Rooks struggled to find a way through. Greenwich came back into the game and probably shaded possession but Winterton, whilst having to be alive to the danger of their attacks, did not have a single shot to save in the whole game. At the other end some desperate defending and foul tackles prohibited Coppola on a couple of occasions although we couldn't make the free-kick opportunities count.
It seemed that we would be destined for a nervous last ten minutes until Lloyd Cotton turned in a well-worked set piece to give The Rooks a second goal and all three points. Billy Medlock came on for the final seven minutes and almost got on the end of a pass from Charlie as he looked to end his goal drought but it was not to be.
