Away win sees Dorking go top 

Marc White’s side came from behind to claim victory after Rui Donaldson’s header gave The Beavers an early lead.

Jason Prior’s penalty levelled the scores, with Wes Fogden completing the turnaround before half time. 

It’s a fifth defeat in six games for Gary McCann’s side, who have slipped to 15th in the table.

Wanderers are a point clear of Ebbsfleet United, although Dennis Kutrieb’s side do have a game in hand. 

Billericay off the bottom with vital win 

Billericay Town picked up a first league win since October after beating the fading Oxford City 2-1 in their own backyard.

Jody Brown’s side have been at the foot of the table since November, although have recently picked up some impressive draws and clean sheets.  Today’s win sees them lift themselves from the sole relegation place at the expense of the inactive Braintree Town. 

First half goals from Shaquile Coulthirst and Femi Akinwande wrapped up the points either side of Canice Carroll’s equaliser.

David Oldfield’s City side have won just one of their last six outings having previously led the table. 

 

 

Five-star Eastbourne crush Hungerford Town 

Eastbourne Borough’s good form continued with a thumping 5-2 win over ten man Hungerford Town at Priory Lane. 

The Sports left it late, and were losing at half time. Joel Rollinson had put the home side ahead within the first ten minutes. The prolific Ryan Seager equalised, and Max Ram gave Hungerford the half time lead.

That was as good as it got for Hungerford, with Greg Luer equalising on the hour mark.  Visiting goalkeeper Luke Cairney was shown a red card with 15 minutes left, and Eastbourne ruthlessly took advantage of the extra man.  Charlie Walker put the home side ahead, and Charley Kendall netted the latest of braces to add the gloss. 

Danny Bloor’s side have picked up 12 of 18 available points over their last six games and are now just two points away from the playoffs.

First home win for Hemel Hempstead 

Hemel Hempstead Town broke their home duck with a 3-1 win over Bath City at Vauxhall Road. 

Captain Gus Scott-Morris opened the scoring before Bath immediately pegged their opponents back through Cody Cooke. 

The Tudors added two goals after the break, with Charlee Hughes and sub Alex Addai wrapping up the the side’s first home win at the eleventh attempt. 

The result sees Hemel leapfrog Bath in the standings with both sides mid-table.
