Dartford 0-2 Braintree Town

Braintree Town beat Dartford to record back-to-back wins in the Conference and put the pressure on the strugglers, who stay in the drop zone, at Princes Park.

The visitors were ahead after Tom Bender handled in the area and Charlie Strutton converted from the spot.

Braintree's James Mulley then missed the target from long range before Remy Clerima narrowly headed wide.

They sealed all three points after the restart when Simeon Akinola fired home from Chez Isaac's low cross.
