Horsham 2 Ashford United 1 (AET)
WE'RE GOING UP!!! Horsham seal play-off final with a win to gain promotion as runners up
Goals from Lee Harding, Rob O’Toole and Tyrell Richardson-Brown meant Horsham will face Ashford United in the Bostik South East Play-Off Final on Friday evening at Culver Road, as Haywards Heath Town were dispatched by Dom Di Paola’s side.
Horsham opened the scoring mid-way through the first half when Harding scored his fifth goal in four games, but they needed to wait until sixty-four minutes to double their lead and calm a few nerves in front of a 547 strong crowd as The Hornets took control of the contest.
Horsham added a third in stoppage time as Heath rarely troubled the hosts throughout, while just ninety minutes stand in front of a place in the Bostik Premier Division next season.
