Fairlands fought back after several minutes when good wing play ended in a low cross to James Fernley who used the outside of his foot to level the scores.
Soon after a short goal kick fell to a Fairlands defender, but with his back to goal a Potton striker stole the ball and unleashed a good effort in the top corner and Potton extended their lead when on the break the ball was hit across the Fairlands 'keeper and into the bottom corner.
Potton began the second half stronger but after 15 minutes Fairlands looked a little more threatening going forward.
A goal mouth scramble fell to the feet of Danny Christ but was blazed over the bar from six yards, but Christ redeemed himself by scoring minutes later to make the score 3-2.
Chances were limited for both times and Fairlands had a goal disallowed for offside and at the final whistle the score was 3-2.
With Potton sitting third in the league, Fairlands felt a bit hard but they kept fighting and both teams deserve credit for their efforts.
