WELWYN Garden City turned the form book on its head on Wednesday night as the relegation battlers ended high-flying AFC Dunstable’s 17-match unbeaten run.

The Citizens came from a goal down at Herns Lane to snatch a 2-1 win thanks to striker Ade Osobu’s injury time winner.

BJ Christie put the visitors ahead on 61 minutes, only for Luke Gleave to level soon after for City in the Spartan South Midlands League Division One clash.

Dunstable then had Lee Burgoyne sent-off as both teams hunted for the winning goal.

Two minutes into added on time WGC took a precious three points as Osobu converted to move his side up two places from second bottom of the table.
