Hackney Wick were left six points adrift at the bottom of the table after defeat at the Old Spotted Dog on Wednesday.

Owner Bobby Kasanga had said they faced a run of three must-win home games, following a last-gasp 2-1 loss at Ilford at the weekend, as they prepared to entertain their fellow strugglers on a chilly evening.

And a fourth successive league defeat – and sixth in all competitions – has put a big dent in their faint hopes of avoiding relegation, with Wick now lying nine points adrift of safety with only 12 games remaining, with the bottom four teams set for the drop at the end of the season.

Wick are set to host improving Barkingside – who have taken seven points from their last five league matches and are now in 16th place – on Saturday, before another home game against mid-table Southend Manor on Tuesday (February 6).

Manor have five points from their last four matches since losing on penalties to Wick in the Challenge Cup.
