Hitchin, who are now down to eighth, host Needham Market at Top Field on Monday.

Royston Town were were in a remarkable six-goal game at home to Stourbridge - although they will be aggrieved not to have taken all three points after being held to a 3-3 draw.

The Crows had got themselves 3-1 in front on 61 minutes thanks to goals from Jarid Robson, Matt Bateman and Kian Harness and with time running out, they were closing in on victory.

The home side had taken a 1-0 lead at the break courtesy of Levi Irving's goal on the stroke of half-time.

But the Citizens rallied after the break and after Cheyce Grant equalised, Max Jessop bagged the winner, breaking the duck for new manager Max Mitchell.

They will look to continue the progression at home to Ware next, Monday's kick-off at 3pm.

The FA Vase began for some clubs and continued for one, Baldock Town scoring a wonderful come-from-behind success at home to Ipswich Wanderers.

Lawrence Ajong scored two minutes into the second period to halve the deficit and four minutes later Wanderers were down to 10 men.

Ajong got his second to level a further three minutes later and Dylan Switters completed the comeback five minutes from time.
