There were a fair few people from Aylesbury who made the short trip to Leighton for a vital game on Tuesday night and they came home happy after a hard fought 1-0 win over their Bedfordshire rivals.
After a goalless first half, the decisive moment arrived on 78 minutes.
Lamar Simpson broke from the right and drove into the Leighton box.
The home defence panicked and when the ball fell to Sonny French he made no mistake, slamming the ball home from five yards despite a desperate lunge on the line.
As FC reorganised themselves, the hosts attempted to claim an equaliser although FC’s goal was never in real danger and the final few minutes were played out without further chances meaning Steve Smith and his players edged ever closer to his safety target of 40 points.
