CHATTERIS Town will have an agonising wait to see if they have done enough to stay in the Cambs Premier League.

The Lilies had Jack Saunders sent off for diving but Ben Matthews’ spectacular strike was enough to secure them a crucial 1-1 draw against Littleport Town in their last game of the season on Saturday.

They are five points in front of Eaton Socon but their relegation rivals still have four games to play and a superior goal difference.

Steve Bright, Chatteris joint boss, said: “Ben got the ball on the edge of the area and unleashed a terrific strike into the top corner but sadly another defensive mistake cost us.

“We’ve set Eaton Socon a target. They are going to have to win two games to overtake us and they don’t have an easy run-in.

“I just hope we have done enough to survive.”

Wisbech St Mary, who are currently seventh, host Linton Granta tomorrow in their final game of the season.
