Kelburne went into the game knowing that four points from their remaining 3 games would be enough to secure a 7th successive title. Burne were again short handed as Gareth Hall, Steve Crossett and Lee Morton sat out the game as well as the usual walking wounded.
The message from coaches Ralph and Fowler was for the team to be patient and keep playing the way they had been. Kelburne continued to put the Wanderers defence under pressure in the second half but were again drawing a blank in front of goal. The opening goal arrived with 15 minutes remaining, when a well worked short corner found Michael Christie in space and he was able to deflect the ball into the net.
