The National League South continued on Saturday with key games at both ends of the table.

Darts extend lead with point
Dartford may be five games without a win, but they extended their lead at the top of the table to three points after a goalless draw with Oxford City.
Steve King’s side are a win clear of St Albans City, who were not in action for a second consecutive weekend.
The Darts have maintained control despite no win since early October, as their contenders fail to take advantage of their poor form.
The draw sees Oxford drop to fourth.
Five in five for Ebbsfleet
Ebbsfleet United are up to third after a 4-3 win at Hungerford Town.
It’s five wins in a row for Dennis Kutrieb’s side, but they were made to work for it by Hungerford who mounted a late comeback.
Rakish Bingham put the visitors ahead, before Sol Wanjau-Smith levelled the game.
Sefa Kahraman’s first goal for the club and Dominc Poleon reestablished Ebsfleet’s advantage. Alfie Egan’s goal looked to have sealed a rout, but Hungerford fought back.
Ryan Seager’s brace on 85 and 89 minutes must have set nerves jangling, but Ebsfleet hung on.
Chippenham break duck against Billericay
Chippenham Town took a 3-0 win over bottom club Billericay Town and recorded a first win in eight games.
Ricky Aguiar, Dan Griffiths and Kieran Parselle were all on target for the home side.
This result sees Billericay lose for a fifth time on the bounce.
Slough end Dorking’s unbeaten run
Slough Town ended Dorking Wanderers’ six game unbeaten run with a 2-1 victory at Arbour Park.
Aaron Kuhl and Freddie Grant gave the home side the advantage. Alfie Rutherford’s header three minutes from time turned out to only be a consolation for the visitors.
Slough’s own unbeaten run is up to five games, and Neil Baker’s side have won four of those.
Best of the rest
Dulwich Hamlet took a comfortable 3-0 win over Bath City.
Hemel Hempstead Town continue to move in the right direction with a 2-1 win over Chelmsford City.
Concord Rangers moved into playoff contention after beating Eastbourne Borough 2-1.
Welling United were 1-0 winners over Tonbridge Angels, who have now lost four in a row.
Hampton & Richmond Borough’s game with Braintree Town was abandoned after a second half floodlight failure.
Struggling Braintree were 1-0 up thanks to Khale de Costa’s goal.
Elsewhere, Havant & Waterlooville and Maidstone United ended goalless.
