St Albans City will spend another season in National League South after their play-off hopes hit the buffers.

They lost 4-2 at home to Worthing on Saturday, their fifth defeat in six matches, the only other game being a draw at Slough Town which came with an injury-time equaliser from Shaun Jeffers.

It saw them plummet from fifth to 11th, but they did manage to arrest the slide with a 1-0 win over Hampton & Richmond Borough on Tuesday, Gio Rasulo the scorer.

They finish their season away to Tonbridge Angels on Saturday.

But while Jon Meakes' team has been struggling of late, the same came not be said of Colney Heath and Harpenden Town in the Spartan South Midlands League Premier Division.

Colney Heath made it four wins from four in a busy schedule, beating Shefford Town & Campton 3-0 on Thursday evening and then winning 2-1 at Baldock Town on Saturday before a 2-0 success at Sawbridgeworth Town on Tuesday.

Sippetts had hit the crossbar in the first half against Shefford but the Magpies went into the break 1-0 up thanks to a curling effort from Brad Dixon-Smith, his second in two games.

A corner brought the second. the scorer picking up an assist for his delivery that was finished off by the head of Chad King.

Sippetts hit the post after this but Jonas Kolanda wrapped things up with a sizzling low drive into the far corner.

Heath had to come from behind against Baldock, Harleigh Johnson-Stanley putting the Reds in front at New Lamb Meadow from an Owen Robertson cross.

Kai Thomas-Fraser had given the ball away in the build-up to that goal but he made amends on 29 minutes, arriving perfectly to head a Jack Kimber corner home.

Two minutes later Colney were in front from the same source, Sippetts this time getting in at the near post to glance the ball home.

Baldock could have equalised before half-time but Connor Sansom dived to his right to save a Robertson penalty.

Sippetts struck the wood again and Thomas-Fraser cleared one off the line but Colney held on for the three points.

George Hughes and Kimber got the goals against Sawbridgeworth while 17-year-old Ben Turville was the star man.

Harpenden's run of victories is now five and it has lifted them to a confirmed play-off position.

Their latest game was a 2-1 home win over Shefford, Harry Andic and Jake Anthony their scorers.

Colney Heath Reserves lost 3-2 at Cuffley in the Herts Senior County League Premier Division, Josh Cross and Lucas De Almeida getting their goals.
