Yeovil’s 19 year wait for a league title had to continue for just a little bit longer, as they were defeated 1-3 in controversial circumstances at Huish Park on Saturday. Let’s see what else happened across the division on a dramatic day…

It was not a day for goals, with Yeovil’s game being the highest scoring in the league (not a total surprise considering Worthing were involved), but we start with a relegation six pointer – it was Dartford who came out as winners in a 2-1 win away at Havant & Waterlooville, who could be relegated by next weekend if they don’t win their game on Wednesday against Welling United, who beat 10-man Torquay United 1-0 at home to further aid their relegation escape.

There were plenty of cagey affairs and 1-1 draws across the league, with Bath City and Tonbridge Angels cancelling each other out, Chelmsford City went down to 9 men but held on for a draw at home to Slough Town, who missed a penalty in a dramatic game; Taunton Town claimed a point away at playoff chasing Hampton & Richmond, while Hemel Hempstead conceded a 90th minute equaliser to already-relegated Dover Athletic.

There were also a few 1-0 wins too, with Eastbourne Borough claiming a vital win for their relegation battle, as they defeated W*ymouth at home. Both Maidstone and Braintree Town confirmed their playoff spots with their wins away to Farnborough and Weston-super-mare respectively, while St Albans City’s hopes took another dent as Chippenham Town left Clarence Park with all three points.

The final game of the day came in the evening kickoff in Gloucester, as Truro City kicked off a run of five games in eight days with a 1-1 draw against 10-man Aveley.
