In the National League, Dagenham & Redbridge are now in 17th spot after Paul McCallum’s second-half header gave Daryl McMahon’s men a decent point away to second-placed Sutton United on Tuesday night.
Omar Bugiel gave the home side the lead with 14 minutes played before Daggers substitute McCallum levelled in the 66th minute, after being set up by Sam Deering.
Daggers had defender Kenny Clark dismissed five minutes later following the issue of a second yellow card, but the 10 men still on the field for them held on to secure a 1-1 draw.
In the National League South Billericay Town have now gone three games without defeat, following their 2-2 draw at Welling United.
Kyel Reid put the Blues 1-0 ahead in only the fifth minute, following a superb run past the home defence followed by a finish into the bottom corner of the net.
The home side then levelled on 37 minutes, when former Chelmsford City midfielder Anthony Cook was fouled from behind by Billy Knott and they won a penalty.
Cook stepped up to take it himself, and scored to make it 1-1 at the break.
And Welling went ahead three minutes after the restart, when Rowan Liburd made it 2-1.
But with 9 minutes left Billericay striker Jake Robinson was fouled in the penalty area.
Robinson then stepped up to score from the spot and secure a point for Jamie O’Hara’s team, who stayed in 13th place.
Braintree Town finally gained their first three points of the season, after Correy Davidson’s early goal – his first for the club – proved enough to give the Iron a 1-0 win over Concord Rangers at Cressing Road.
Although Braintree remain bottom of the league, they are now level on points with the two sides above them and two points behind Concord, who are 18th.
