TEAM JETS had their advantage over Premier League 2’s basement club Kent shaved to just a single point after suffering a heavy defeat away at Chester.
The Islanders, who beat league leaders Team Bath Toucans last month to move off the foot of the table, gave a good account of themselves at the Cheshire County Sports Club – but ultimately were unable to match a team pushing for a spot in the division’s top three.
While Jets returned home with just a single point, tenth-placed Kent secured two after suffering a narrow 40-36 home loss to third-placed Clan.
Jets, who face a crucial home match against Linden on Sunday, now have only a point separating themselves from the sole automatic relegation position.
