Dartford 0-2 Braintree Town
Second-half goals from Alan Massey and Liam Enver-Marum secured a comfortable win for Braintree at Dartford.
The Darts had the better of the first half but could not find a way past Braintree keeper Nathan McDonald.
Braintree improved after the break and the deadlock was broken in the 69th minute when Massey rose highest to nod in a free-kick from Kenny Davis.
And Enver-Marum wrapped up the victory for the Iron in the 90th minute when he tucked in a pass form Daniel Sparkes.

Dartford manager Tony Burman told BBC Radio Kent:
"We didn't come out second half, we asked the guys for a bit of a response, it didn't happen.
"The longer the game went on we knew Braintree play a certain way, they want to play slowly but organised and we got caught up with the speed of the game.
"We have to be more intelligent and braver than we were in the second half."
