Spartan/South Midlands

League Premier Division

Potters Bar, needing a win to bridge the gap behind the pacemakers, were well set at half-time with a 3-1 lead.

But they were punished for defensive errors before making sure of the points.

Against the run of play, Brache took a 29th minute lead but Bar were soon level when Steve Smart's cross was diverted in for an own-goal and went 3-1 up through Chris Griggs and Lee Talbot.

Brache narrowed the gap, but conceded a second own-goal and although they snatched their third, Lee Talbot wrapped it up for Potters Bar.
