Sporting Bengal saw their fine recent run brought to an end by in-form Takeley after conceding two first-half goals.

And it was a similar story for neighbours Tower Hamlets, who fell two goals behind in the first half of their match at Southend Manor on the way to their latest loss.

Imrul Gazi’s Sporting went into their last home match of the season at Mile End Stadium, modelling next season’s new home kit, on the back of a four-match unbeaten run and March wins over Burnham, Southend Manor and Redbridge.

But they were left up against it as Charlie Cole struck twice for the visitors to take his tally for the season to an impressive 47 goals.

The home side could not make any inroads in the second half and Gazi tweeted: “Disappointing performance from the lads today, not the best game for the neutral. Still 10/15 pts is good. We go again next week.”

Bengal visit Ilford next weekend, then return to Cricklefield Stadium two days later to face tenants Barkingside on April 3.

Ade Abayomi’s Hamlets travelled to Southchurch Park on the back of a four-match losing run and without a win in eight matches since their February 4 success over Burnham.

And they fell behind on 27 minutes as George Crispin’s free-kick found the net with the aid of a deflectoin from Hamlets captain Jairo Pedro, before Crispin’s cross was headed in by Daniel Okah for a second.

Saico Djop had two chances to reply for the visitors, but saw one blocked and sent the other wide, before O’Neal Rowe also put a free-kick past the post.

Djop hit back after the restart with a curling shot and Rahim Adama Bamba saw a shot saved, before substitute Simeon Awoliyi struck an upright.

But Okah made it 3-1 from the penalty spot on 62 minutes, after Hamlets keeper Joe Biscoe brought down Manor captain Robbie Norris, and Djop’s close-range finish with a quarter of an hour remaining proved only a consolation.

Hamlets return to Mile End to host FC Romania next weekend.

Hamlets: Biscoe, Earle, Rowe, Bambo, Lang, Pedro, Olanipekun, Asidio (Awoliyi 53), Adama Bamba (Kourouma 74), Djop, Sumithran.
