St Albans City will have to wait until at least Tuesday to discover if they have done enough to seal a National League South play-off place after losing at Dartford.

Saints went down 2-1 at Princes Park, Shaun Jeffers having cancelled out a third-minute opener with 17 minutes to go, only to concede a second five minutes later.

It leaves them sixth in the table with one game to go and both Havant & Waterlooville and Farnborough can still catch them should they win their games in hand in midweek.

If they do, the saga moves on to the final day of the season when St Albans host Farnborough at Clarence Park.

The likelihood is that City have already done enough, with goal difference in their favour, but whatever happens this week, manager David Noble is still annoyed at the goals being conceded from silly mistakes and the opportunities being passed up.

"The mood in the changing room is not good," said the boss. "It’s a disappointing result after another really good performance, bar the details.

"We missed some seriously easy chances in the first half and we conceded two terrible goals. 

"Football is decided in the details. It’s not always the best team that wins. 

"We knew they’s be tired after playing Thursday night and we wanted to take it to them. 

"But to give them a goal straight away with a sloppy bit of play from ourselves, it wasn’t a great start. 

"The performance from then on though was really good."
