Braintree Town 1-0 Salford City
Bottom club Braintree rocked National League promotion chasers Salford as a dramatic last-minute finish sealed a narrow win at Cressing Road.
Four minutes of stoppage-time had been played when Callum Morton applied the final touch in a goalmouth scramble.
The hosts had ridden their luck in the early stages as Rob Atkinson and Ricky Gabriel both cleared efforts off the line, while Carl Piergianni also forced Ben Killip into a fine save from 20 yards.
At the other end, Chris Neal almost fumbled a Korrey Henry shot, but gathered at the second attempt.
Neal also made a brave stop to deny Henry from close range, but his efforts were in vain as Morton snatched victory with his last-gasp goal.
