Title race heats up in Division C

Four games were played this week and the race for the Division ‘C’ title heats up as the leaders slip up.

Top of the table Barking lost for only the third time this season as they were edged out 1-2 by 2nd placed Brightlingsea Regent. The dominant Barking have lead the Division for the majority of the season, however their hard work could well be undone as Regent now sit just a point behind them. It looked like Barking were running away with it as at one point there was a 10 point gap separating them from the rest, but with the rising forms of the teams below and their own dwindling form, could this setup towards an exciting end to the season?

Meanwhile, Bishop’s Stortford beat Brentwood Town 1-0. It was a close game but thanks to a  penalty from Dan Pinkney midway through the second half, it was delight for Stortford. The result means they are four points off Barking and three off Regent. However Stortford have two games in hand over the teams above them, and with form as good as this (unbeaten since November) have a very realistic chance of taking the Division ‘C’ crown.

Norwich City RDP got their fourth win of the season as they buried Lowestoft Town 0-3. The Canaries, currently occupying 8th place, now sit four points behind Boreham Wood Whites and look to end the season on a high after a rocky start. Lowestoft meanwhile will want to forget this season but will also be looking to finish this season on a high to give them confidence going into their next season.

Finally, Maldon & Tiptree defeated Boreham Wood Whites 1-0. It was Maldon & Tiptree’s seventh win of the season and the result brings them level on points with AFC Sudbury, who didn’t play this week. For the Whites it’s their seventh loss of the season and they now drop down into 7th place.

Next week, three games will be taking place as Brightlingsea Regent look to continue their good run of form as they travel to AFC Sudbury. While Bishop’s Stortford will host Lowestoft Town in a game that could see Stortford go 11 games unbeaten. Finally, Brentwood Town will take on 9th placed Ipswich Wanderers.
