The Hawks’ Vanarama Conference South play-off ambitions suffered a setback as they slipped to a 3-2 defeat at Concord Rangers.

Ben Wright gave the visitors an early lead but the home side hit back to level before the break.

Two second-half goals put the Essex side in charge, before Scott Donnelly set up a tense finish with a goal four minutes from time

The defeat leaves fourth-placed Hawks looking anxiously over their shoulder as Concord move to within four points, with a game in hand.
