Hayes and Yeading United came from behind to beat Merthyr Town on Tuesday night thanks to two goals from Omar Rowe.

After a long trip to Weston Super Mare just a few days earlier, United would have been forgiven for being exhausted, but manager Paul Hughes only made one change with Aaron McCreadie replacing the suspended Manny Duku after his red card against Poole Town last Tuesday.

After a sluggish start, the Welsh side started to get a foothold in the game and started to test Alex Harris in the visitors' goal.

Kyle Patten then opened the scoring for Merthyr 17 minutes in, as he forced the ball home after a corner wasn't dealt with.

The lead didn’t last long and within two minutes Hayes were level after a smart finish from Rowe following a slick move involving Francis Amartey and Connor Toomey.

Rowe got his second shortly after the break when he powered home from just outside the box, as a long throw-in was helped into his path from Scott Donnelly.

Merthyr continued to threaten in the dying stages, but Hayes managed to hold out to make it two wins in four days.

The win leaves Hughes’ side just one point off of the playoff places, and they will be looking to keep the pressure on Taunton Town in fifth position when they welcome Gosport Borough to the SkyEx Community Stadium on Saturday.

Uxbridge left Honeycroft with a hard-fought 0-0 draw against second-placed Hanwell Town in the BetVictor Isthmian League South Central Division on Tuesday night.

Chances were hard to come by with both sides evenly matched, with a header from Callum Bunting the closest Uxbridge came to snatching all three points.

That stalemate saw Uxbridge extend their unbeaten run to five league games, with two draws and three wins in that time.

The Reds are still in the midst of a playoff battle, as they sit two points ahead of Tooting and Mitcham United in sixth, although the Terrors have three games in hand.

Next up for Uxbridge is a trip to face top of the table Ware, who beat them 2-0 last time they played back in October, but with only one defeat this year Uxbridge will go into the weekend full of confidence.

Hillingdon Borough romped to a 4-1 win over Bedford Town in the Spartan South Midlands Football League Division 1 on Saturday.

Nico Coleman, Gursewak Jagdev, Rinidie Lokilo and Ali Hilali all found the net in a resounding win for the Hillmen, with Daniel Baulk scoring the sole goal for the visitors.

Victory for Hillingdon sees them leapfrog Bedford into fourteenth position in the table with 24 points from 23 games, with a trip to league leaders St Panteleimon awaiting them this weekend.
