Hayes and Yeading United furthered their hopes of securing a Bet Victor Southern League Premier Division South play-off spot with a 1-0 home victory over fellow promotion hopefuls Swindon Supermarine on Saturday.

United started the game on the front foot and were close to finding the lead in the 12th minute when a goal bound Scott Donnelly free-kick was saved by Swindon stopper Martin Horsell.

However, Hornsell was unable to keep out Francis Amartey five minutes later after Karl Cunningham and Omar Roofe combined on the edge of the 18-yard box before releasing the in-form striker, who took it round the keeper and fired into the far corner.

Swindon attempted a fightback and come close to equalising when Jamie Edge’s shot forced Dan Lincoln into making a superb save moments after the opener.

The visitors piled on the pressure in the dying moments but Callum Buckley’s last-gasp clearance ensured United went third in the table.

Uxbridge also kept up their play-off push in the Isthmian South Central Division, going third after a narrow 2-1 victory over Barking on Tuesday evening to achieve their first home win since December.

Uxbridge got off to a brilliant start when Nicholas Bignall broke the deadlock in the opening minute with an excellent finish.

The home side looked to be in cruise control as Barking failed to impose themselves on the game, but in the 27th minute they got their chance and took it when Johnny Ashman equalised.

However, they only managed to stay level for six minutes as Uxbridge restored their lead through Jack Beadle.

The visitors forced Paul McCarthy to pull off a couple of saves in the second half but fell short of finding another leveller.

The victory followed up Saturday's 3-1 win at Bedfont Sports, which came courtesy of goals from Mark Bitmead, Mahlondo Martin and Callum Bunting. Uxbridge’s winning streak now stands at four matches ahead of this Saturday's home clash against Hertford Town.

Elsewhere, Hillingdon Borough suffered a 3-0 defeat against play-off chasing Milton Keynes Robins which saw them drop to 17th, one place above the Spartan South Midlands League Division One relegation zone.

The Robins limited Hillingdon to only one chance all afternoon, a shot across the face of goal which rolled wide in the first half.
