Royston Town moved seventeen points clear of the Evo-Stik League Southern Division One Central table on Saturday with only twenty-one points left to play for.
Second-placed Farnborough do possess a game in hand, but it seems only a matter of time before the Crows celebrate winning the title and promotion to the Premier Division for the first time.
Saturday saw Royston enjoy a comfortable 4-0 win at Garden Walk against Chalfont St Peter with goals from Martel Powell (below) on 20 and 86 minutes and Rod Orlando-Young on 69 and Ryan Ingrey on 88 minutes.
Farnborough were 4-2 winners at Chestnut Avenue against Northwood, taking a 10th minute lead through Josh Higgins before falling behind to goals from Louis Bircham from the spot on 36 minutes and James Budden 5 minutes after the break.
But Nic Ciardini on 63 minutes, Ed Smith 3 minutes later and debutant Scott Donnelly 5 minutes from time earned Boro`s win.
Marlow, Barton Rovers and AFC Dunstable occupy the remaining top five spots, with Marlow losing 1-0 at third-bottom Aylesbury FC – Ty Deacon scoring the only goal for the Moles 9 minutes from time.
That win pushed Aylesbury eight points clear of second-bottom Histon, who lost 2-1 at the Glassworld Stadium to Barton, whose Elliot Bailey right on half-time and Connor Calcutt on 64 minutes proved too much for the struggling Stutes, whose Tommy Wright replied 4 minutes from time.
AFC Dunstable won 4-1 at Calthorpe Park against Fleet Town, with Jermaine Hall bagging a brace along with BJ Christie and James Bishop – Ben Toye replying.
Kempston Rovers and Egham Town are five and six points respectively behind the top five after both won at home on Saturday.
The Walnut Boys were 4-0 Hillgrounds winners over a Petersfield Town side who, although not mathematically relegated, looked doomed in bottom spot.
Sam Johnson`s brace was topped and tailed by Ashley Fuller and Grant Fryer.
The Sarnies beat fourth-bottom Arlesey Town 2-1 at the Runnymede Stadium with goals from Bajram Pashaj after 57 minutes and veteran Richard Pacquette a minute from time – Joe Steele replying in stoppage time.
Potters Bar Town are eighth, a point behind Egham, after winning 3-0 at Ashford Town (Middx) with goals from Michael Murray from the spot after 64 minutes, Chris Doyle on 73 minutes and Rob Hastings 3 minutes into stoppage time.
Elsewhere, Matty Woods bagged a second half brace as Uxbridge won 2-1 at Holloways Park against Beaconsfield SYCOB, whose Aaron Berry had given them a 32nd minute lead, while Sonny French and Bruno Lobo De Brito were on target as Aylesbury United won 2-0 at Hanwell Town.
Kidlington and Bedford Town shared a 1-1 draw in the day`s other game, with Anaclet Odhiambo`s 32nd minute opener for the hosts being cancelled out by the Eagles` Jemale McKenzie-Lowe 2 minutes after the break.
