The 26-22 reverse leaves them four points above the drop zone, with Cheshunt below them having a game in hand, although the two bonus points secured at North Road could yet prove crucial.

It was not to be though and St Albans destiny could now rest on their last game of the season, away to rivals Cheshunt on April 14.
