Ben Pope made it 2-1 to Burgess Hill Town

Goals from Pat Harding and Ben Pope looked to be enough for all three points at Bishops Stortford, but the former Norwich City and Bristol Rovers striker scored in the 90th minute, his second of the game, to claim a point for the home side.

This was Simon Wormull and John Rattle's first game in charge after Ian Chapman took a short leave of absence in his role as manager.

Melford Simpson and Karly Akehurst both scored to give Haywards Heath Town a 2-0 win at home to Sittingbourne.

Hassocks lost 2-1 at home to Crawley Down Gatwick with Phil Johnson scoring the Robins' goal.

John Noakes scored two at St Francis Rangers lost 4-2 away to Seaford Town.
