With Shoreham without a game, Haywards Heath Town missed the chance to move two points behind the Mussels at the top of the Southern Combination League Premier Division after playing out an entertaining game with Pagham.

Trevor McCreadie put the Blues 2-0 up at Hanbury Park before Kieron Pamment halved the deficit at the break.

James Binfield in the Pagham goal then kept his side in it, saving from the penalty spot, only for Alex Laing to put the hosts 3-1 up with 10 minutes to go. However, the Lions came back to earn a point with Liam Humphries and Joe Shelley on target to earn a 3-3 draw.

Broadbridge Heath stay in sixth spot, despite an impressive win against Newhaven.

Dean Wright, Jake Holmes, Oli Moore and Marlon Maxwell were all on target in a 4-1 win at the Leisure Centre, with Ian Robinson scoring late on for the Dockers.

Worthing United are a point from safety after picking up a surprising 3-0 win at home to Horsham YMCA.

Paul Elliott scored twice after a goalless second half to help Simon Funnell to his first home win in charge.

Adrian Todd added a third goal late on for the Mavericks.

Wick moved out of the bottom three after a 5-1 win at home to a Hailsham Town side rooted to the foot of the table.

Dan Simmonds scored a hat-trick for Lee Baldwin’s side, with Ashley Harper and Joe Grommet also on target in the rout.

Hallum Cousins’ goal had drawn Town level at Crabtree Park, but it was in vein.

Late goals helped Loxwood earn a draw away at Peacehaven & Telscombe.

Marcus Allen and Jack Doe goals put Haven two goals ahead with just 8 minutes to go, but Toby House and a stoppage time effort from Eddie French saw the Magpies earn a share of the spoils at the Unibet Arena.

In the division’s other game, Eastbourne United returned to winning ways at home to Lancing.

Liam Baitup scored a brace after Adam Davidson had opened the scoring in a 3-1 win at the Oval.
