HATFIELD Town's promotion hopes are still alive as they beat Sun Postal Sports 2-0 on Easter Monday to at least guarantee third spot in the table.
First-half goals from Jason Caswell and Trevor Golder ensured Town the three points against their opponents from the bottom three.
For the Easter game Hatfield welcomed back keeper Sam Lacey, who was injured in their Herts Senior Centenary Trophy Final defeat to Hoddesdon Town.
It was a bit of a dour match with Hatfield by far the more accomplished side.
Trevor Lloyd's men showed some tiredness which was not surprising as it was the club's fourth game in seven days.
However, the Blueboys knuckled down to the task.
The strike partnership of Daniel Staples and Jason Caswell continued with their impressive form.
In the middle, skipper Martin Standen rallied the troops well and Gary Coley was outstanding in defence.
The Sun had little to offer, but their keeper was in great form and kept the Hatfield strikers at bay early on.
However, on 19 minutes the front pair linked well and Caswell steered the ball into the back of the net.
From then on it was all Hatfield.
Despite enjoying the greater possession, the hosts did not get their second until just before the break.
With Caswell bearing down on goal, he was upended in the penalty area.
Trevor Golder made no mistake from the spot to double his side's advantage.
The second half was one of total domination by the boys in blue, but their shooting boots were absent.
However, their first-half strikes proved to be enough to secure the victory.
The Mortgage Centre man-of-the-match was Gary Coley.
On Wednesday night Hatfield are set to play Winslow United at Herns Lane in the league.
