Nationwide Conference Wrap

The Nationwide Conference saw Oxford United surrender their lead at the top of the table to Dagenham & Redbridge on Saturday afternoon.

Oxford's 1-1 draw with Crawley Town, coupled with Dagenham's victory, saw them pay the ultimate price. Anthony Scully put Town ahead, only for Robert Duffy to save the home side's blushes.

The 1-0 victory that moved Dagenham to the top of the table was secured by Craig Mackail-Smith in the 80th minute at the expense of Halifax Town.

Morecambe came away from Tamworth with a very well deserved 1-0 victory thanks to a strike from Wayne Curtis on the hour mark.

Stevenage Borough beat high-flying Weymouth 1-0 in a very tight Nationwide Conference fixture. John Nurse got the only goal of the game for the away side.

Three second half goals provided exciting viewing as Exeter City came away from St Albans with the coveted three points. Goals from Wayne Carlisle and Dean Moxey gave City victory.

Kidderminster Harriers came away from Southport with a precious 1-0 win thanks to a late Luke Reynolds strike.

A late goal by Val Owen saved Graham Heathcote's Altrincham the blushes against Forest Green Rovers at The Recreation ground in a 2-2 draw. Chris Giles and Tony Butler had given the away side the lead on two different occasions only for Lewis Chalmers and Owen to draw level.

A late Daryl Clare penalty kick earned Burton Albion all three points against Cambridge United at Abbey Stadium. Michael Gash had put the home side ahead only for Andy Duncan to hand Albion the equaliser by putting the ball into his own net.

Gravesend & Northfleet edged out Rushden & Diamonds 1-0 thanks to an 83rd minute Omome Sodje strike.

Two matches had to be called off on Saturday due to waterlogged pitches. Grays' trip to Aldershot was called off after just nine minutes while Northwich's trip to Stafford Rangers was called off just after half-time.
