The fantastic home form of Wivenhoe Town went on as the Dragons lifted themselves back into the top three in the Thurlow Nunn League division one south table.

Gary Monti’s side, who were fourth, hosted third-placed Benfleet and won 2-1 to make it six straight wins at the Blackstone Stadium and take themselves back into the top three.

The win was set up by a Peter Maina strike in the first half, before CJ Cabulo doubled the lead after the break and although Benfleet got one back after Jack Mead had been sent off for a foul as the last defender, the Dragons held on for the victory.

There was also a welcome 2-1 win on home turf for Halstead Town.

The Humbugs had lost their previous two division one south outings, but moved up to sixth with a 2-1 win against Newbury Forest with their goals coming from Callum Vincent and Ricky Gardner in the first half.

Coggeshall United were another side winning 2-1, but the Weavers’ success came on the road at Wormley Rovers.

Hussain Jaffa opened the scoring for Coggeshall and although they were pegged back by their hosts, Lewis Soraf fired in the winner for them.

Holland FC were another side scoring twice, but this time it was not in a winning cause as opponents Barkingside scored four in a 4-2 victory.

James Williams and Harvey Cowler were on target for Holland.

Meanwhile, Friday night action had seen Harwich & Parkeston beaten 2-1 at May & Baker.

In the premier division, there was frustration for FC Clacton as their home game against Norwich United was postponed due to a waterlogged pitch.

However, both Stanway Rovers and Brantham Athletic secured a point apiece from their respective games.

Rovers drew 0-0 at Newmarket Town, while the Imps were pegged back by a last gasp equaliser at Wroxham after Sean Gunn had put them ahead in a 1-1 draw.
