Dorking sneak past promotion rivals 

Marc White’s side picked up a narrow 1-0 win over promotion rivals Oxford, who now trail the table toppers by ten points.

Darren Oldaker’s first half free kick was enough for the Meadowbank side to continue their stunning form which has seen them rise above the chasing pack.

It’s a first defeat in three games for City, who remain under the caretaker charge of Andy Ballard and Ross Jenkins. 

Defeat sees City drop to fourth by virtue of goal difference.

Crucial win for Dartford 

Dartford have jumped back up to third place after winning a critical game against Ebbsfleet United with the game’s only goal.

Steve King’s side have largely been off the boil in recent months, but picked up a vital three points to keep their title hopes alive.

Jake Robinson’s goal was enough to wrap up back-to-back wins for the Darts, who gained revenge for their loss in the reverse fixture last month.

It’s another bruising defeat for Ebbsfleet, who are down to fifth having lost to three of the sides above them in their last four matches.



Kendall double moves Eastbourne into playoffs

Charley Kendall’s brace gave Eastbourne Borough the edge over Hampton & Richmond Borough.

The new Lincoln City man - loaned back to the NLS side until the end of the season - scored in both halves to give his team a 2-0 lead.

Zach Robinson’s quick reply to the second goal may have unsettled a few nerves, but the visitors held on and moved up to sixth place. 

Hampton have one win in six and are in 13th place, six points off the playoffs.
