  • Own Goal (57')
  • Reynolds (9')

The match will take place on Wednesday evening (2 May), kick-off 7:45, with tickets available to buy now. Season tickets are not valid for this fixture.

A 3-1 win over Hemel Hemstead Town saw the Reds leapfrog Chelmsford City on the final day, while Braintree, who started the day in 6th, slipped a place after only managing a draw at Slough Town.

Chelmsford fell to a home defeat at the hands of Taunton Town, in turn missing the opportunity to take advantage of Oxford City’s surprise defeat at Bath and finish third, avoiding the eliminator round in the play-offs.

As a result the Clarets will not host St Albans City on Tuesday evening, for the right to face runners-up Dartford in the semi-final on Sunday.

Should the Rebels overcome Braintree there’ll travel to the RAW Charging Stadium to take on Oxford City, also on Sunday.

The final takes place seven days later on Sunday 14 May at the venue of the club with the highest league placing.
