Clapton CFC got their first away win of the MCFL season, coming from behind to defeat PFC Victoria in west London on Saturday.
The hosts converted their early pressure into a lead when Kamil Wrobel turned a low cross into the corner.
But Clapton fired back when a scooped Sherwin Stanley through ball was converted by onrushing midfielder Julian Austin.
Shortly afterwards, Stanley set up another. His cross from the right was met by a Bilal Hussain diving header to make it 2-1.
A couple of top Jack Francis saves kept the Tons in front going into the break.
But just after the restart, Victoria equalised through striker Piotr Murawski who prodded in a cutback from the right past Francis.
Clapton's winner came when the Victoria keeper spilled a long shot by player-manager Geoff Ocran, who rushed in to finish.
The visitors then managed to cling on for the three points, despite being down a man for ten minutes, with Ocran sin-binned for dissent.
