Winchester 1-1 draw at Banbury gave them a marginal edge in their South Premier League relegation battle ahead of the now suspended final week of competition.
Winchester's final game is at home against already-crowned champions London Wayfarers, whilst West Hampstead, one point behind them and a nine-goal difference deficit, take on the mid table Banbury.
If Winchester maintain their 10th position, then hope transfers to National League Bromley and Beckenham in escaping their own relegation. If they fail to do that, then Winchester would face highly testing play offs with the teams finishing second in the two regional feeder leagues. Craig Jeffrey scored Winchester’s goal at Banbury.
Trojans, meanwhile, suffered a double dose of the Blues when Oxford University thrashed them 6-1 at Stoneham Lane, where Richard Aves was on target.
