Ryman North: Maldon 3 Redbridge 2
Redbridge slumped to a fourth successive defeat after conceding a 90th-minute goal at the Wallace Binder Field.
Motormen had shipped 11 goals in their previous three outings, conceding four against Barkingside and Waltham Abbey in Ryman North and three more against Hornchurch in the Essex Senior Cup quarter-finals.
And they fell behind after 19 minutes when Nathan Korangten netted from the penalty spot to give Maldon the lead.
Kacey Adams got the visitors back on level terms just past the half-hour mark, but Yala Ruddock put Maldon back in front on the stroke of half time.
Vinny Murphy netted the second Redbridge equaliser of the afternoon and it looked like earning his side a much-needed point in their battle against the drop.
But Alex Anderson popped up to deny Motormen in the last minute, earning all three points for the home side.
Redbridge remain just outside the relegation zone, but former tenants Barkingside are now only three points behind following their 2-1 win over Soham Town and have three games in hand.
Motormen will hope to get the better of Soham Town themselves when Rangers visit Oakside on Tuesday.
Redbridge; Parker, Tatham, Hunt, Murphy, Thomas, Scott, Bansende (Gent 79), Damali (McKenzie 90), Adams, Nougher, Santo. Unused sub: Abitogun.

Sporting Bengal 1 Ilford 5
Ilford ran out comfortable winners against the Essex Senior League’s basement boys after an improved second-half display at Mile End Stadium.
Allan Fenn’s Foxes had snatched a last-minute winner against Greenhouse in midweek and came away with another three points thanks to a Chris Stevens brace, with Carl Mulling and Karolis Atutis also on target.
An own goal completed Ilford’s tally, while Shahed Ahmed netted a consolation for the hosts.
Ilford are back on the road next weekend when they travel to Cheshunt to take on FC Romania, who have lost their last three home matches by a combined score of 13-1.
