Dulwich prolong Braintree’s miserable run 

The Iron are second bottom after first half goals from Jordan Green and Quade Taylor were enough to wrap up all three points.

Tom Derry pulled one back for the home side in the second half, after Michael Timlin missed a penalty for the visitors.

Hamlet have moved into the playoff places with today’s victory.

Dartford still clear at top without playing 

Leaders Dartford were the big winners in the top half despite not kicking a ball. 

Maidstone United - the Darts’ nearest challengers before kick off - couldn’t cut the five-point gap after a 2-0 loss at home to Dorking Wanderers

Goals from James McShane and Callum Kealy gave the visitors victory.  Home captain George Elokobi saw red late on for a second bookable offence after confronting the referee. 

Oxford City are now Dartfords closest rivals, albeit five points behind as they drew 1-1 with Chelmsford City.

David Oldfield’s side looked set for a third straight win thanks to Nana Owusu’s opener, but Chelmsford had other ideas.

They left it late, but walked away with a point after Adam Morgan’s injury time equaliser. 

Hungerford thrash Concord 

Hungerford Town claimed the biggest victory of the day with a 4-1 win over Concord Rangers.

A brace of braces for Ryan Seager and Sol Wanjau-Smith gave their side an away day to remember. 

Aron Pollock’s first half equaliser gave the home side hope after Seager opened the scoring, but it wasn’t to be for Chris Search’s Concord side.

Playoff contenders pick up wins 

In-form Ebbsfleet United and St Albans City picked up their third and fourth consecutive victories respectively. 

Ebbsfleet are up to fourth after a narrow 1-0 win over Eastbourne Borough.  Greg Cundle’s early goal was enough for Ebsfleet, who played most of the second half with ten men. Will Wood saw red five minutes after the break.

St Albans picked up a 2-0 win at Bath City to climb into fifth place. 

Shaun Jeffers grabbed both goals to bring his impressive tally to 14 in as many games.

Best of the rest 

Bottom club Hemel Hempstead Town picked up a point in a 1-1 draw with Welling United.

Tonbridge Angels got back to winning ways with a 1-0 victory over Billericay Town.

Slough Town picked up a much-needed 2-1 win over Havant & Waterlooville.

It’s a first win since the opening day for Slough, who have climbed above fellow strugglers Braintree and Billericay in the table. 

Hampton & Richmond Borough and Chippenham Town played out a goalless draw.
