Gosport Borough remain in the National League South play-off places after their hard-fought 0-0 draw at Concord Rangers.

The visitors had club captain Sam Pearce back in their starting line-up after recalling him from his loan spell at Farnborough.

Lee Wort went closest to breaking the deadlock in the first half with a low shot that thumped back off the woodwork.

A last-minute Scott Donnelly goal earned the Hawks a precious point in a 1-1 draw at Whitehawk.

The relegation-battling Hawks looked like heading to another away defeat when Donnelly fired home after Shamir Mullings headed the ball on.

Earlier, a defensive mix up between Josh Hill and goalkeeper Ryan Young had gifted the home side the lead.

The point wasn’t enough to lift Lee Bradbury’s team out of the bottom three.

Bognor battled to a goalless draw in their top-of-the-table Ryman League premer division clash at East Thurrock United.

And in the Wessex League premier division, Fareham Town crashed to a 4-0 defeat against Verwood Town in the New Forest.

United Services Portsmouth saw their division one promotion hopes dented by a 2-0 defeat at the hands of league leaders Portland United in Dorset.

Elsewhere, petersfield, Moneyfields and Horndean all saw scheduled games fall victim to the weather.
