....final game for both sides are crucial for totally different reasons.
Basingstoke took a 25th minute lead against the strugging Beavers when Jide Ogunbote`s fine tackle set Wes Daly free and he picked out Delano Sam-Yorke, who outpaced Darren Powell before slotting home a left-footed effort.
And Jason Bristow`s men made sure of victory with a second goal in the 56th minute when a corner was only half-cleared as far as Tim Sills and he had time to take a touch before smashing a volley into the back of the net from around twelve yards.
The win for Basingstoke means at least a draw at Welling United on Saturday will ensure a play-off place, despite what Chelmsford City achieve at home to champions Woking.
However, the defeat means that Hampton simply need to win at already-relegated Thurrock.
