It was also the eighth game without a win for Saints, who last picked up three points against Maidenhead United in December.
Two Mark Pugh goals, both in the second-half, did the damage leaving City rock bottom of the Vanarama National League South.
As usual photographers Bob Walkley and Leigh Page were in attendance to capture the best of the action.
St Albans’ attention turns away from their league woes tonight (Monday) when they head to Hitchin Town for the semi-final of the Herts Senior Cup.
Manager Harry Wheeler will no doubt be hoping the game provides the momentum required to lift the club out of the danger zone.
Kick-off at Top Field is at 7.45pm.
