National League South leaders Dartford are now without a win in four games after a 3-3 home draw with Chippenham.
By Steven Oldham
Last minute goal rescues point for Chippenham
The visitors had taken the lead through Dan Griffiths after 21 minutes, before top scorer Ade Azeez levelled the game.
Noor Husin’s goal followed two minutes later and Dartford went into the break 2-1 ahead.
Ricky Aguiar brought the away side back into the game before the hour
Azeez netted a second after 77 minutes, and The Darts had looked on track to break their recent run of poor form until Luke Russe’s last-gasp equaliser.
Chippenham’s own winless run is now up to seven games but they’ll be the happier of the two sides with a point.
Braintree pick up first win since August
Braintree Town picked up a first win in eleven games with a narrow 1-0 victory over Tonbridge Angels.
Kyran Clements’ first half tap in was enough to wrap up only a second win of the season.
The Iron have climbed out of the solitary relegation place having picked up the best result among the bottom three.
They’re now just a point behind today’s opponents Tonbridge, who have now recorded back-to-back defeats.
Dorking miss chance to go second
Hemel Hempstead Town and Dorking Wanderers may be at opposite ends of the table but couldn’t be separated today in a 2-2 draw.
Niall McManus opened the scoring for Dorking after just eight minutes, before Alfie Cerruli brought the home side back into it.
Dorking’s Alfie Rutherford delivered an instant reply, scoring from the kick off to give his side the half-time lead.
Craig Fasanmade scored the game’s final goal ten minutes into the second half.
The Tudors’ Fasanmade also had a first half goal disallowed for a foul on visiting goalkeeper Stuart Nelson. Sub Freddie Hinds had a penalty saved by Nelson ten minutes from time.
Wanderers could have moved into second place with a win, but have to settle for third with St Albans City and Oxford City not in league action.
Hungerford move into playoff spots
Hungerford Town have climbed to fifth after a convincing 4-1 win at new bottom club Billericay Town.
Danny Robinson’s side took full advantage of the reduced fixture list and had the game won before half-time.
Ryan Seager, Matt Patridge and Jake Evans gave the visitors a commanding 3-0 lead at half-time.
Seager scored his second and the side’s fourth from the penalty spot 20 minutes into the second half. Charlie Lee scored a late consolation for Billericay.
Hungerford have now won four of their last five games, while Billericay have lost four on the bounce.
Best of the rest
Bath City picked up three points after beating Welling United 2-1. It’s a welcome win for Jerry Gill’s side who had previously lost four in a row.
After a goalless first half, Elliott Frear and Alex Fletcher put Bath in control late on. Arthur Penney pulled one back in injury time for Welling.
Eastbourne Borough broke their own losing streak with a 2-1 win over Chelmsford City.
Danny Bloor’s side had lost three in a row before today. Adebola Oluwu’s own goal and Dom Hutichinson’s second half goal put the home side in a commanding position. Simeon Jackson netted a late goal but it wasn’t enough to rescue a point.
Slough Town picked up a 1-0 victory over Maidstone United thanks to substitute Warren Harris, who scored within a minute of coming off the bench.
