A bumper crowd of 798 were at the Green Elephants Stadium to see the Hillians unfortunately all-but relegated going into the final game of the season.

Dan Beck gave the Hillians the lead in the 78th minute after Aaaron Smith-Jospeh did fantastically to work some space and crossed perfectly for Beck to head home.

But Adeyemo scored in the 88th minute to deny them the three points.
