Hampton & RB 5-1 Brentwood


Hampton took another stride towards the title with a comfortable 5-1 victory over a Brentwood Town side reduced to ten men after skipper Martyn Stokes was sent off on the hour.

It was yet another home win for Alan Dowson's men but despite a great day the chasing pack of East Thurrock and Tonbridge won well too - so there's still lots of work ahead.

But the countdown is on and now two wins from our final three games will be enough to secure the Championship - providing of course Bognor don't win every single one of their remaining seven fixtures.

Leon Solomon gave the Beavers the lead on 22 minutes, before Mark Smith saved an admittedly soft Brentwood penalty two minutes later.

Jamal Lowe made it 2-1 on 28 minutes before Town got one back through Alex Teniola 5 minutes later.

Brendan Kiernon's deflected shot immediately after half time made it 3-1 Hampton before Stokes was dismissed for a horrible lunge on Tom Beere.

Beere himself made it 4-1 with an accurate shot on 78 minutes before substitute Charlie Moone added the cherry with a simple tap in with 5 minute left.

Up next it's Farnborough next Saturday - the countdown is well and truly on!
