Chris Gormley twice put title-chasing Hannakins Farm in the lead at Manford Way but a Suley Zuhdu brace plus a further goal from Loubana Wyatt saw the hosts run out 3-2 winners. The defeat leaves Hannakins Farm top of the table but they have no more games to play and now must hope that Springfield don’t overhaul their tally. Springfield closed the gap to three points after their game at Rayleigh Town ended in a 2-2 draw. Rayleigh took the lead when Ben Harris finished from just inside the box. Springfield equalised just on the stroke of half-time via Ross Lamb. An end-to-end second half looked to have gone Springfield’s way when Adam Vyse put Springfield 2-1 up in the 89th minute but Ricky Gill then levelled in stoppage time. Springfield have three games left to play and could snatch the title from Hannakins Farm’s grasp if they pick up just one further win due to having a better goal difference. Buckhurst Hill needed to pick up at least a point from their encounter with Harold Wood Athletic if they wanted to lift themselves out of the relegation zone. The 2-1 defeat that they suffered means they remain in relegation danger although they have played fewer games than the other relegation candidates. Lee Newton and Ryan Parker both scored braces in Kelvedon Hatch’s 5-2 win at May & Baker E.C. Chris Muir notched the other goal with Jamie Reddington and Richard Oxby supplying the May & Baker goals.
