Upminster’s men came from behind to beat Cambridge City thirds 5-1 in their East Division One encounter.
The hosts took the lead with a well-taken drag flick from a short corner, but Upminster were back on terms as Ollie Cipa’s crossed was deftly converted by Jamie O’Dell.
The visitors showed more composure in front of goal in the second half as Cipa netted twice, with Dave Hadsley and Alex Mitchell also on target.
Nick Harris was named man of the match, while Sam Langston took the defender of the match award, but third-placed Upminster are eight points off promotion with only three games left.
The seconds lost 4-3 to Maldon, but the thirds were 3-1 winners at Wapping eighths.
The fourths went down 5-0 at home to Crostyx thirds, as the fifths lost 4-1 to East London eighths.
Upminster’s women had a 4-2 win at Holcombe in East One South and are set to host lowly Folkestone on Saturday.
