BILLERICAY Town suffered a fourth consecutive National League South defeat as they lost 2-1 to Hungerford Town.

Harry Wheeler’s side went into the clash having suffered three consecutive defeats, but they looked as though they would be on course for all three points thanks to Adam Coombes’ second half penalty.

However, Hungerford restored parity with four minutes remaining through a penalty of their own.

And Hungerford, who went into the clash in the drop zone, stole all three points at the death.

Meanwhile, Concord Rangers were consigned to just their second home defeat of the campaign as they lost 1-0 to title-chasing Torquay United.

The only goal of the encounter, which took place in front of 627 fans at the Aspect Arena, came thanks to a Kyle Cameron header.

Danny Green went close for the Beach Boys after coming off the bench, but the substitute’s free-kick struck the post.

Jack Midson headed over in injury time as Concord missed out on the chance to clinch a share of the spoils.

Elsewhere, 10 man East Thurrock United lost 3-2 to Hemel Hempstead Town.

Rocks created a number of fine chances, but Hemel took the lead two minutes before the break as Arel Amu converted Sanchez Watt’s cutback.

But an action-packed three minutes saw East Thurrock turn the game on its head and go down to 10 men.

Ibrahim Sori-Diallo was shown his second yellow card on the hour mark, with Darren Ward hitting the post from the resulting free-kick.

However, Sam Higgins headed home the leveller moments later and Rickie Hayles put Rocks in front with 62 minutes on the clock.

Hemel were offered a way back into the clash as East Thurrock goalkeeper brought down former Billericay team-mate Watt and Jordan Parkes converted from the penalty spot.

The hosts sealed all three points with seven minutes to play as Parkes’ free-kick took a wicked deflection off the wall and wrongfooted Giddens.
