Hayes & Yeading United fought hard to earn a valuable 1-1 draw against Southern Premier South play-off place rivals Swindon Supermarines at the Webbswood Stadium.

An early goal inside two minutes from Francis Amartey put United in front at the break despite the visitors coming under heavy pressure from the Supermarines.

Henry Spalding had a big chance in the 17th minute but his effort was knocked just wide.

Not long after Conor McDonagh had a half chance, but he was unable to get enough curl on the effort as the shot landed just wide of David Lincoln’s goal.

Swindon’s Jamie Edge and James Clarke of Hayes & Yeading both entered the referee’s book just before the interval but the away side managed to hold on to their one-goal advantage.

But it only lasted two minutes into the second-half as Swindon got back on level terms when Edge’s dangerous freekick fell to the back post and was curled into the corner by Spalding.

There were chances for both sides as the game drew to a close, with Martin Horsell producing several fine stops in Swindon’s goal as a lack of cutting edge saw the points shared.

Meanwhile, it was difficult playing conditions for Uxbridge FC as they travelled to Chalfont St Peter, where they encountered strong winds and a pitch that had been affected by Storm Dennis.

Nonetheless both sides were well up for the game as Uxbridge went in search of a much-needed win in their bid for a South Central play-off place come the end of the season.

Uxbridge were quick out of the blocks against Chalfont, creating lots of chances early on but nothing to trouble goalkeeper Sam Freeman.

Pressure started to build from the away side later into the first half as Jack Beadle sent a warning sign after having a good goal-bound effort tipped over by Freeman.

And just three minutes after, Beadle got his goal with fine finish to give Uxbridge a 1-0 lead.

A lapse in concentration from Uxbridge defensively saw Chalfont go clean through on goal as they looked for a response before the break but the subsequent shot was just wide of the post.

As the second half began, Storm Dennis caused problems for both sides as the winds got stronger.

The second half fizzled out with little chances for both sides. Kayode Conteh of Chalfont was sent off for a second bookable offence late into the second half.

Super sub Mahlondo Martin then scored in injury time to secure the victory for the away side. A huge three points for Uxbridge as they continue their push for a play-off place.

Elsewhere, Hillingdon Borough had their game against London Lions called off.
