Micky Collins was far from complimentary about this latest defeat which left Sevenoaks Town bottom of Bostik League South East.
Firework Night may be a more than a month away, but while somebody was enjoying letting off rockets in a park next door to the Jubilee Field - Town were failing to light the blue touch paper in this meeting between the two hitherto winless teams in the competition.
A first half penalty and a mistake by goalkeeper Ben Bridle Card soon after the restart proved the difference on the night.
The West Sussex hosts adopted a shoot-on- sight policy from the start producing several off target efforts early on.
Home youngster Mason Doughty’s pace proved a real problem for Town all game,
Bridle-Card tipping his first effort of the night over the bar inside the opening 15 minutes.
Town responded, Ryan Fowler combining with Greg Benbow down the left but his cross was headed over by Frankie Sawyer.
Luke Coleman’s left foot effort was saved, before Town fell behind seven minutes later.
Doughty tumbled in the box under Jack Miles’ challenge and Connor French stepped up to score - Bridle Card unlucky touching the ball onto his right hand post, only to see it nestle in the back of his net.
Miles went close to making amends seeing his header saved, before Fowler squeezed a right foot shot just wide in stoppage-time.
Collins made a double change at half-time sending on Kenny Pogue and Sam Crabb in place of skipper Rob Saunders and new signing Ola Williams.
Miles switched to partner Jake McIntyre in a back four, with Mikey Dalton moving to right back.
However Town’s task became even greater as Three Bridges doubled the lead after 50 minutes.
Benbow conceded a free-kick which Doughty clipped in to the near post, Bridle-Card diving low only to spill the ball into the path of substitute Trevor McCreadie who fired home.
The much travelled striker, faced Town in the FA Vase last season when with Haywards Heath almost hit a second soon afterwards, only to fire narrowly wide.
Pogue went close seeing his effort saved, then Miles popped up on the blind side, but could only head another McIntyre free-kick into the side netting.
