The league championship will go right to the final day of the season with four teams - Dunstable Town, Rugby Town, Daventry Town and Kettering Town all in the mix.

With a game in hand - at Egham Town on Wednesday night - Daventry Town are in the driving seat despite their 2-0 defeat at Kettering Town, in front of a bumper Latimer Park crowd of 1228, the Poppies scoring twice in the second half through Eliot Sandy and Dubi Ogbonna.

Dunstable Town moved back to the summit, and helped their goal difference, by crushing Bedfordshire neighbours Leighton Town 6-1 at Bell Close, as Lee Roache scored twice, as did Terry Dixon with two late penalties.

Rugby are second, just a point behind, after they beat playoff chasing Barton Rovers 2-0 at home with a goal in each half from Seb Lake-Gaskin and Jamie Towers.

The race for 5th spot and the final playoff place will also go to the final day, with both the challengers Slough Town and Barton losing, although Slough only need to match Barton's result to clinch the place despite their 3-1 defeat at former manager Steve Bateman's Aylesbury FC.

At the other end of the table, Ashford Town (Mx) and Chertsey Town's respective relegations were finally confirmed, despite the former drawing 2-2 at home to Egham Town, whilst Chertsey went down to a miserable 4-1 home defeat to 18th placed AFC Hayes who built on Saturday's long awaited win.

Even in losing 4-1 at Uxbridge - ex-Ducks Kieran Knight (2) and Melford Simpson amongst the scorers - third bottom North Greenford United are now safe from relegation, and could yet overtake Leighton Town in the table.

Both Royston Town and Northwood were playoff contenders earlier in the season, but the Crows crashed to a heavy 4-1 defeat at home to St Ives Town, Jon Stead scoring twice for the visitors, whilst Northwood suffered a 2-1 reverse against Potters Bar Town at Northwood Park.

Elsewhere, the South Buckinghamshire derby saw Marlow come from behind, scoring two late goals to win 3-2 at Chalfont St. Peter.
