A night of brilliant results affecting teams at either end of the table on Tuesday night as Bracknell Town beat fellow promotion chasers and Hungerford Town scored five at relegation rivals.
Bracknell Town are certainly ‘odds on’ for a play-off spot in the Pitching In Southern League Premier Division South but clipped the wings of the Seagulls – Weston-super-Mare – on their own patch on Tuesday night.
Unsurprisingly, striker Ben Harris has proved an astute signing for the Robins since his Slough Town departure and he bagged two more goals as Bracknell took a 2-0 lead in Somerset half and hour gone.
Olly Mehew pulled one back on 33 minutes, but rounding off a goal-laden first half was Darryl Sanders who restored the Robins two-goal lead.
The win certainly cements Bracknell’s play-off position with a run at the title a possibilty should the Seagulls go on a poor run.

In the battle at the bottom of the Vanarama National League South it was advantage Hungerford Town as the Crusaders scored five at Weymouth in a 5-2 win.
The Terras – managed by former Hungerford boss Bobby Wilkinson – are now level on points with the Crusaders with both sides having 10 games left.
Hungerford had a two goal first-half lead courtesy of on loan Ryan Jones and Jake Evans – Jones scoring after just six minutes, but Weymouth roared back and were level with 20 minutes to go prompting the Crusaders Twitter account to go with the puke emoji’s.
Jones though had other ideas and gave Hungerford the lead again on 78 and George Smith restored the cushion on 82 minutes. What was set to be a nervous final 20 minutes became a breeze when Joe Boachie made it five on 88.
