Leiston now only lead the Ryman League Premier Division table on goal difference after they were held to a goalless draw and second-placed Suffolk rivals Needham Market managed a win.

Leiston shared a 0-0 draw at Westleigh Park with a Havant & Waterlooville side who are now just a point behind them in fourth.

The Hawks failed to capitalise though when the visitors were reduced to ten-man in the 68th minute when Byron Lawrence was shown a straight red card.

The Marketmen won 3-0 at Leylands Park against Burgess Hill Town, who also finished with ten-men.

Reece Dobson gave the visitors a 17th minute lead that striker John Sands doubled after 34 minutes.

Dobson scored his second and the Marketmen`s third to make it game over in the 70th minute, with the Hillians losing Jack Brivio to a second yellow card 8 minutes from time.

Lowestoft Tpwn moved up to eighth in the table after beating third-placed Bognor Regis Town at Crown Meadow.

The Jarvis brothers proved to be the Trawlerboys` heroes on the day.

Ryan Jarvis gave the home side a 16th minute lead that James Crane eventually cancelled out on the hour-mark.

But the Rocks were beaten when Rossi Jarvis grabbed a last-gasp winner for Lowestoft.

Dulwich Hamlet are back in the top five after they beat AFC Sudbury and Tonbridge Angels lost at Wingate & Finchley.

AFC Sudbury slipped to their fourth league defeat in succession at Champion Hill.

A goalless first 45 minutes, but the home side scored through new signing Dumebi Dumaka 2 minutes after the break and added another 8 minutes from time through Gavin Tomlin.

An interesting little fact from the game was that the terrific attendance of 1,683 was apparently the highest ever league gate that Sudbury have played in front of!

Tonbridge suffered a 4-0 mauling at the Harry Abrahams Stadium.

It was a bad day at the office for Steve McKimm`s side as, after trailing to Luke Ifill`s 36th minute opener at the break, Steve Wales on 49 and 90 minutes and Reece Beckles-Richards on 78 minutes inflicted a 4-0 defeat on the promotion-chasing Angels.

Enfield Town are seventh after a 5-1 hammering of third-bottom Canvey Island at The Prospects Stadium.

The Gulls got off to a great start when George Sykes gave them an early 4th minute lead.

But in the 27th minute the game changed when Canvey were reduced to ten-men when Tayshan Hayden-Smith mistimed his tackle and caught Jon Muleba and the player making his debut – against his former club – was shown a straight red card.

That opened the floodgates for Town, whose Samir Bihmoutine equalised just before the break and then Ricky Gabriel after 53 minutes, Billy Crook from the penalty spot on 67 minutes and a Dernell Wynter brace in the final 9 minutes completed a 5-1 rout.

Bottom-markers Grays Athletic suffered another defeat and also finished with ten-man at Mill Field against Leatherhead.

Ty Smith gave the Tanners a 20th minute lead that Nathan Campbell cancelled out just before the break.

Four minutes into the second period, Rash Kamara restored the visitiors` lead, with Grays losing sub Mikheil Kharshiladze to a 72nd minute red card.

Second-bottom Metropolitan Police were also beaten, 3-2 at Wheatsheaf Park by Staines Town, who played for 38 minutes in the second half with ten-men.

Mo Bettamer gave the Swans a 24th minute lead that Laurent Hamici eventually cancelled out from the spot after Staines defender Mitchal Gough was sent-off for a second bookable offence.

Bettamer restored the ten-men`s lead after 61 minutes, only for Hamici to level again almost immediately.

But Staines won it 2 minutes from time, thanks to a Brandon Adams spot-kick.

Hendon were the only bottom four side to win on Saturday, 2-1 at Woodside Road in front of 660 against Worthing.

Keagan Cole broke the deadlock to give the visitors a 67th minute lead.

Will Hendon (appropriately!) equalised with 16 minutes remaining, only for Sam Murphy to win it for the Greens 8 minutes from time.

Harrow Borough won 4-1 at Earlsmead against Folkestone Invicta, whose Antony O`Connor gave them a 10th minute lead.

But three goals in 4 minutes around the half-hour mark from Lewis Driver with two and George Nicholas, turned the game in Boro`s favour.

Ibrahim Meite added a fourth 16 minutes from time.

Kingstonian were beaten 1-0 at Kingsmeadow by Harlow Town, whose Jared Small was the match-winner in the 64th minute.

The day`s other game saw Merstham and Billericay Town share a 1-1 draw at Moatside.

Dan Bennett gave the hosts a 23rd minute lead they held until the 68th minute when Ricky Sappleton equalised.
