Brix­ton were level min­utes later when great work from Fier­stone and Josh Franklin al­lowed Jamie Kent to stroke the ball past Ben De La Fuente.

Norstar tried to hang on but, with time run­ning out, Wein- berg pro­duced a great leap to con­vert a flick-on from sub­sti­tute Dan Sher­man to spark wild cel­e­bra­tions.

Brix­ton boss John Nitka said: “Norstar were the bet­ter team in the first half but then we took con­trol. Some of our foot­ball was a de­light.

“We are still there and have to win against Red­bridge in three weeks’ time to clinch pro­mo­tion.”

Norstar man­ager Phil Peters said: “A 3-2 de­feat is heart­break­ing, but as good as we were first half, Brix­ton were matched us in the sec­ond half.

“We need to re­group and get a re­sult against Wood­ford to put the pres­sure back on Brix­ton.”
