Welling United 1-2 Braintree Town

Braintree came from behind against Welling to secure their third straight National League win.

Afolabi Obafemi got on the end of George Porter's flick to finish past Will Norris and give the hosts an early lead.

Braintree equalised eight minutes later when Michael Cheek turned Matt Paine's cross past Tom King.

Anthony Edgar then teed up leading scorer Dan Sparkes to hit the winner with a left-foot shot.
