Harrow Borough preserved their Ryman League Premier Division status as they came from behind to beat Bognor Regis Town 3-2 on Thursday night.
Borough fell behind at Earlsmead to an early goal from Ollie Pearce, but Jordan Berry hit a 17th-minute equaliser before Simon Woods restored Bognor’s advantage.
Ola Williams levelled for Borough on the stroke of half-time and a goal from Vences Bola with 13 minutes remaining earned the home side all three points.
Bottom side Hastings United, who were still within reach of Dave Anderson’s men before kick-off, have been relegated after losing 1-0 at East Thurrock United.
At the other end of the table, Wealdstone’s hopes of clinching second place remain alive after rivals Lowestoft Town slumped to a shock 3-2 defeat at Wingate & Finchley.
Gordon Bartlett’s side are now relying on a favour from neighbours Hendon, who travel to Lowestoft on Saturday while the Stones entertain Canvey Island.
If Wealdstone win, they will be guaranteed third place in the final table – and home advantage in the play-offs – but they would leapfrog Lowestoft into second if the Suffolk side fail to beat Hendon.
