Sevenoaks Town met local rivals Corinthian at the end of October in a match they won 1-0 thanks to a Louis Collins penalty in the first half, but other recent results did not go their way in October. They started the month with a trip to Lancing in West Sussex which they lost 2-1 after coming from behind, their scorer Lamin Bah.
Sevenoaks then faced Ashford United at the Bourne Stadium losing 3-0 before hosting East Grinstead four days later, Freeman Rogers and Bradley Schafer were on the scoresheet to record a 2-0 win. However their third game in a week away at Burgess Hill Town, resulted in a 3-2 loss, coming from 2-0 down Sevenoaks looked to get the draw thanks to Fjord Rogers and Schafer.
Corinthian on the other hand had been enjoying a relatively good month despite their early exit to Brentwood Town in the FA Trophy at the start of the month.
They started their Isthmian League South East Division in October with a win over VCD Athletic on the road, winning 4-1 with goals from Jack Mahoney, Louie Clarke, Joshua Stirman and Emmanuel Oloyede. Luke Tanner, Becka-Kah Dembele and Mahoney then put paid to Lancing on the road as they secured another three points before hosting Ramsgate at Gay Dawn Farm with Mahoney and Oloyede scoring once again for the Fawkham club.
Then came the defeats: Corinthian hosted Whitehawk on a late October Tuesday night and came out on the wrong side of a 4-0 score line. That was immediately before the trip to nearby rivals Sevenoaks. However, with all those results, Corinthian find themselves in 9th position with 14 points whilst Sevenoaks are in 11th on 13 points, albeit having played one game more than their rivals.
Sevenoaks have just the one home game in November against Chichester on the 13th, whilst Corinthian have three, the most notable being the match against Hastings United on the 6th.
