City secure play-off spot at relegated Bognor Regis

A single Chris Dickson goal was enough to give Chelmsford City victory at Bognor Regis this evening, and despite other sides also picking up points, a play-off spot is now guaranteed.

Dickson struck early in the match, netting from a tight angle for his 20th goal of the season (13 in the league) and keep the Clarets right in the mix.

The result sees the Clarets climb back up to fourth, behind 3rd placed Hampton & Richmond by just a solitary goal. Hemel Hempstead are 1 point further back, with Truro 2 behind them and Braintree a further 2 back rounding off the play-off places.

St Albans are the only team outside the play-offs who can make their way into it on the final season at the weekend

Elsewhere, Truro City beat Weston-super-Mare 2-0, whilst Braintree were held to goalless draw at home to Oxford City.

The Clarets need to better Hampton & Richmond’s result by just one goal to get third place and avoid the extra play-off game that awaits the teams finishing 4th down to 7th.
