BILLERICAY Town are back in the National League South play-off places after recording a 4-1 win at Gloucester City.

While Dejon Noel-Williams gave the strugglers a half-time lead, Charlie Wassmer got Town back on level terms before Moses Emmanuel claimed a hat-trick.

And Harry Wheeler was pleased to see his side's run of seven outings without a win come to an end.

The Billericay boss said: "We improved as the game went on.

"They probably edged it in the first half and I thought we needed to fight more.

"We needed to get closer at times and be a little bit more savvy to their danger.

"We spoke about their danger beforehand and they were hurting us, to be fair. They do what they do really well.

"I was pleased with the reaction in the second half.

"We were great and it's all about the three points.

"It gets us back in the play-offs and into sixth.

"All we can do is keep trying to stay in it for the last three games."

Noel-Williams put the hosts in the driving seat with 19 minutes on the clock, but Wassmer levelled matters with a header close to the hour mark.

Billericay turned the game on its head as Emmanuel fired the visitors in front soon after.

Emmanuel added to his tally with seven minutes remaining and completed his hat-trick with a penalty in the dying moments.
