Maidenhead United`s lead at the top of the Vanarama National League South table was cut to eight points on Saturday.

The Magpies were held to a draw by fourth-placed St Albans City.

In front of a crowd of 1,111 at Clarence Park, Sam Barratt struck in the 18th and 50th minute for Maidenehad and it looked like his side were on course for a comfortable victory.

However, Tom Bender headed a reply for the Saints in the 72nd minute.

That still looked as though it was only going to be a consolation though until Sam Merson fired into the bottom corner in stoppage time.

Second-placed Ebbsfleet United won 4-2 at Grosvenor Vale against mid-table Wealdstone.

Dave Winfield gave Fleet a 14th minute lead that an own goal cancelled out just before half-time.

Danny Kedwell restored Fleet`s lead immediately after the break, only for Jonny Wright to level just 2 minutes later.

Another own goal, this time by the Stones` David Hunt, made it 3-2 less than 2 minutes after that, with Sam Deering making sure with a fourth for the visitors in stoppage time.

Chelmsford City moved into third place following a hard-earned 1-0 win at Melbourne Stadium against fourth-bottom Whitehawk.

Despite the Clarets new signing Chris Dickson proving a lively customer all afternoon, it was Max Cornhill who finally broke the deadlock 10 minutes from time when he bundled home from close range from Robbie Willmott's corner.

Dartford thrashed East Thurrock United 6-1 at Princes Park to move into the top five.

Tony Burman's side showed that they are genuine play-off contenders by taking an early 2nd minute lead through Tom Bonner and then being 4-1 up at the break.

Alex Brown added the Darts` second in the 14th minute and Tom Murphy the third on 23 minutes.

Tom Wraight reduced the arrears 9 minutes later, only for Andy Pugh to score the home side`s fourth in the 36th minute.

The second half was slightly quieter for the 920 crowd, with Ryan Hayes on 54 minutes and then Elliott Bradbrook in the last minute adding to the Dartford tally.

Poole Town dropped out of the play-off places after being held to a goalless draw at Priory Lane by Eastbourne Borough.

Hampton & Richmond Borough could have taken fifth spot had they managed to beat mid-table Bath City at Twerton Park.

However, they had to be content with a point from a 1-1 draw.

Bath had gone into the break ahead, thanks to Jack Batten's 33rd minute header.

But Hampton drew level in the 79th minute through striker Nicke Kabamba.

The home side had the chance to win it after Marvin Morgan was brought down in the box, only for Frankie Artus to become the latest to miss from the penalty spot for Bath this season.

Hungerford Town are still in the race for a top five spot after adding to Gosport Borough`s woes with a 4-1 win at Privett Park.

Boro`s signing embargo was lifted this week and they made several signings, but many were youngsters and the Crusaders turned round two-up with goals from Manny Williams after 20 minutes and Jon Boardman 3 minutes later.

Ben Wright pulled the home side back into the game 2 minutes after the restart from the spot, but on the hour-mark, Nat Jarvis made it 3-1 and Stefan Brown added a fourth 17 minutes from time.Margate sunk to the bottom of the table after losing their `six-pointer` to fellow strugglers Bishop`s Stortford.

The Blues biggest victory of the campaign to date saw Greg Cundle put them in front on the half-hour mark.

Phil Walsh scored on his debut to make it 2-0 just 5 minutes into the second half and Manny Adebowale wrapped things up with a third 18 minutes from time.

Concord Rangers slipped back into the relegation places after they went down 3-1 at home against another of the strugglers, Weston-super-Mare.

The Beachboys found themselves behind in the 9th minute when an attempted clearance was charged down by Brad Ash and he finished beyond loan goalkeeper Bailey Vose.

On 23 minutes it was 2-0 as Jamie Chamberlain fired home from 20 yards.

And a miserable first half was compounded when Gethyn Hill scored on the stroke of half-time to make it 3-0.

But Concord managed to `win` the second half with a goal in the 72nd minute from Steve Cawley.

Truro City edged out Oxford City by the odd goal in five at Treyew Road.

The hosts raced into a two-goal lead in the first quarter of an hour as Ryan Brett and then Rocky Neal found the net.

The home side continued to show plenty of urgency after the restart and persistence on the bye-line by Neal produced an precise pull-back for Dan Smith to convert from near the penalty spot to make it 3-0 on 52 minutes.

Shaun McAuley scored his first goal for the Oxford as he tucked away fellow substitute Mike Fondop’s cross from close-in on 65 minutes.

And with the clock ticking down, Michael Fondop headed home to make the final score 3-2.

Welling United started life without manager of the month Jamie Day again with a 2-0 defeat at Vauxhall Road against Hemel Hempstead Town.

Jordan Parkes gave the Tudors an early 7th minute lead.

Jake Robinson made sure of the points when he added a second with 14 minutes left to play.
