With nearest rivals Rugby Town not in action, Dunstable Town extended their lead at the top of the table to four points with both teams having played 23 games, as the Blues made it fifteen league wins without defeat. 

After a goalless first half at Creasey Park, St Ives Town took the lead through Jon Stead almost straight away, but that lead lasted less than two minutes with Leon Cashman levelling, and Tony Burnett scoring ten minutes later to give Dunstable a 2-1 win.

Royston Town took Barton Rovers' third place (whose game was postponed) by winning 3-1 at Uxbridge, Robbie Mason hitting a hat-trick and all three of the domnant Crows' goals.

Biggest winners of the day were Kettering Town, who overtook Slough and Daventry to move into the playoff positions by beating Leighton Town 5-1, with Dubi Ogbonna scoring a hat-trick of penalties.

Northwood are just a point behind the Poppies thanks to their 2-0 win at struggling Chertsey Town, where Jerome Federico, with his second goal in three games since returning to the club, and Nico Muir scored both the goals inside the opening half hour.

Another playoff hopeful, Slough Town, are now without a win in four games and shared the spoils at Marlow in a 2-2 draw, despite going ahead in the first minute, whilst Aylesbury United and Potters Bar also finished even at 0-0.

With only a point between them in the table, AFC Hayes and Chalfont St. Peter predictibly ended level, but Saints held a two-goal lead courtesy of Alan Heldey and Romaine Walker after 21 minutes, only to be pegged back by Charlie Crane and Lucas Williams before the break, which was how it ended at 2-2.

Finally, basement side Ashford Town (Mx)'s form shows no signs of improving as they went down to a 2-0 defeat at Beaconsfield SYCOB, whose Zak Joseph scored in each half to condemn the Tangerines to a 17th straight defeat.

Three matches were postponed this afternoon: Aylesbury FC vs Rugby Town, Barton Rovers vs North Greenford United and Egham Town vs Daventry Town.
