Maidenhead United 0-1 Braintree Town

Cameron James scored a vital winning goal for Braintree as they beat fellow National League strugglers Maidenhead.

Josh Kelly thought he had given Maidenhead the lead after nine minutes but was given offside before tucking the ball away neatly.

Braintree's Justin Amaluzor appeared to be brought down in the area eight minutes after the break but the referee denied the visitors' penalty appeals.

But with 22 minutes to go Braintree's James gave the visitors the lead when he headed in the opening goal and that was enough to secure all three points for his side.
