STANMORE continued their revival in the ECB Premier League with a second win in as many weeks on Saturday.
They welcomed rock bottom Brentham and made good headway after putting the visitors in to bat.
Medium pacer Niaz Ahmed (4-32) and off-spinner David Dunn (3-54) helped restrict the away side to 160 all out, putting themselves in a good position to clinch the full 10 points.
Alistair Fraser was instrumental in keeping the run rate ticking over with a patient 46, which helped Stanmore to hit 163 with four wickets to spare.
The victory lifts Stanmore above Eastcote and just four points adrift of their next opponents Winchmore Hill.
An away win there could take them to fourth spot with just seven games to play.
The second side lost some ground in the title run in despite holding on to a losing draw away to Brentham.
Batting first Brentham raced into a commanding position as they declared after 50 overs on 245-7.
Stanmore were unable to reach the target but played out a draw as they finished on 216-7.
Although they remain in third with the additional point, they have fallen further behind league leaders Ealing who beat second place Brondsbury.
Stanmore thirds lie precariously close to the drop zone after a defeat against Eastcote left them just a point off relegation.
Despite making 186-7 in their innings the visitors were able to get the required runs, losing only four wickets in the process.
