There was one game in the Evo-Stik League South East and South West on Monday night.

In the South East, Cambridge City eased into fifth spot, eight points clear of the chasing pack in the play-off race, after a comfortable 3-0 win at St Ives against fourth-bottom Hanwell Town.

Jack Vasey gave City a 24th minute lead, but that was it for the first half, and it wasn`t until the 65th minute that Lewis Wilson managed to double the home side`s advantage.

A Nick Turner own goal 4 minutes into stoppage time completed the scoring, but there were some unsavoury scenes at the final whistle when the Hanwell players surround the referee – a-la Juventus – and the official brandished a red card to one of their players.

In the South West, Bideford AFC gave their play-off hopes a massive boost with a 2-1 win at Yarnton Road against Kidlington.

Ben Wood gave the Devonians an 18th minute lead that Ben Seymour doubled just 3 minutes later from the penalty spot.

The Oxfordshire hosts `won` the second half, courtesy of a 56th minute Duran Martin goal, but Biddy held firm to move to within three points of the top six with a game in hand on most around them.
