In-form Dereham won 3-2 against Maldon & Tiptree in a close game at Aldiss Park.

The visitors opened the scoring in the 12th minute when Darren Mills beat Will Viner from 30 yards. Dereham replied in the 26th minute with Ryan Crisp slotting home the loose ball after his initial header had struck the post.

Crisp notched his second to put the Magpies in front in the 56th minute after fine play from Frazer Blake-Tracy and Will Sainsbury-Logan.

Tiptree soon restored parity through substitute Tarryn Allarkhia but Dereham substitute Lewis Butcher headed home the winner from Crisp's corner in the 89th minute to earn his side's fourth league win in a row.
