Redbridge’s 4-0 loss at home to Stansted means that the Essex Senior League Senior Division title race will go right down to the final day.

Jack Mitchell opened the scoring for the high-flying visitors after only nine minutes when he lobbed in from James Peagram’s through ball, and Jack West got on the end of Callum Ibe’s pin-point cross to double the lead before the break.

The Airportmen looked to be seeing the game out at 2-0 in the second half, but with Redbridge down to 10 men through Daniel Smith’s dismissal, they turned the screw in the final few minutes.

James Turvey added a third with seven left on the clock and, in the first minute of stoppage time, Paul Clayton fired home the fourth.

The result leaves Redbridge 12th in the table, while Stansted can clinch the title from Hullbridge Sports on the final day.

The current leaders, Hullbridge, tightened their grip on the title with a comfortable 3-0 win away at Ilford.

Emmanuel Okunja struck after just three minutes to hand Hullbridge the advantage, finishing from the edge of the box after a neat cut-back.

The hosts’ task was made harder when they went down to 10 men just before the break, and Hullbridge took advantage six minutes after the re-start when Nathan Scarborough drilled home.

Five minutes into stoppage time, Luke Hornsley rounded off the scoring with a fine individual goal.

Despite the loss, Ilford are confirmed a top-ten finish, while Hullbridge potentially need just a point to clinch the league next week.

Leyton Athletic’s relegation to Step 6 was confirmed on Saturday as they fell to a 3-0 defeat at home to Takeley.

Nick Barrett opened the scoring at Wadham Lodge after 19 minutes before Bryn Thorpe doubled the lead, taking his tally from the last two games to five.

Barrett added his second after the break to ensure that Athletic finish bottom of the table, while Takeley could mathematically still finish fourth, but will more than likely end up in fifth.

Finally, West Essex were held to a goalless draw away at Stanway Rovers.

A poor first half was followed by a second period that saw the hosts enjoy the lion’s share of possession, but neither side could find a way past each other and they remain 15th and 13th respectively.
