Sports had Bradley Gilbert and Taylor Stewart sent off towards the end of the match after Navy had hit the front. Gilbert was dismissed after picking up a second yellow for a foul and Stewart received a straight red for striking an opponent.

Nasir Nabi (2) and Louie Venni were the Sports goalscorers - Venni finding the back of the net with a terrific long-range effort - while on target for Gunthorpe were Andrew Irvine, Zach Findley, Oluwatomi Ogunyoye and Harrison Skinner.

Sports stay top of the table but they are now just a point ahead of Gunthorpe, who have four games in hand.
