PITCHING IN ISTHMIAN NORTH
STOWMARKET TOWN 0 - 1 BRENTWOOD TOWN
Andy Freeman grabbed a winner for Brentwood five minutes from time to earn a home tie against the same opponents in Tuesday's play-off semi-final.
Stowmarket needed only a draw to secure home advantage on Tuesday but failed to take their opportunities earlier in the game and Freeman swept home in the 85th minute after Ashley Nzala had created the opening on the left wing.
Willie Clemons had Stow's best chances in the first half and Tom Bullard and Evan Collard could have put them ahead early in the second half but Blues owed a lot to keeper Harry Girling who twice saved well from Clemens.
