Jack Hayes nabbed an 81st minute winner for Barking to seal a narrow 1-0 victory over South Park to keep them within touching distance of the Isthmian South Central play-offs places.

The Blues returned to action after having last weekend's fixture postponed due to a waterlogged pitch from the weather conditions in recent weeks.

They remain ninth in the league table after that win but just six points off the play-off places and will be determined to build on this victory in the coming weeks.
