The table toppers came to North London backed by a noisy bunch of supporters and with the game drifting into injury time it looked like they had done enough to escape with a 0-0 draw and the one point they needed to win the title.
A Noel Imber long kick up field was headed on by Leon Osei into the path of Adam Wallace in the box who was brought down by Louis Johnson giving the referee no choice but to award a penalty kick.

Leiston are still firm favourites for the title as they face Potters Bar Town at home next Saturday with Enfield Town travelling to Grays Athletic.
The simple fact for Enfield Town is they need to win at Grays Athletic and hope Potters Bar Town can either win or nick a point at Victory Road to bring the title back to Donkey Lane. It's tough ask as Leiston's home form is nothing short of brilliant but you never know. Town fans have just got to hope!!
|TEAM LINE UPS|
The Cold End sends best wishes to Leiston player Jemel Fox who fell awkwardly during the first half and was feared to have broken his arm. Luckily the news is it is was only dislocated. Get Well Soon Jemel!
