Havant & Waterlooville 1
Hayes & Yeading United 2
HAYES & Yeading United were denied a third consecutive clean sheet through a late penalty but still returned from a trip to Havant & Waterlooville with all three points.
United made it three straight victories in the Skrill South as the continue to show signs of improvement under the leadership of Phil Babb.
The visitors were on the back foot early when Sahr Kabba beat the defence but Mikhael Jaimez-Ruiz did well in goal to force Kabba wide from where his shot cannoned wide off the post.
But a quick change in fortunes saw United marshal the ball forward through Kamaron English on the left wing.
His subsequent cross rebounded off Ryan Woodford's arm and Jack Mills stepped up to the task of taking the spot kick, which he coolly converted for his first United goal.
Kelvin Bossman, who had fed the ball through to English in the build-up to the first goal, was also involved in the second.
A sloppy clearance from the home goalkeeper was charged down, allowing English to pick up on the loose ball and set up Allen Bossman for a volley.
Havant hit the woodwork again shortly after but could not find a way past the in-form Jaimez-Ruiz.
Jaimez-Ruiz was on the verge of keeping three straight clean sheets - something no United goalkeeper has accomplished - but in stoppage time he was adjudged to have committed a foul when punching a cross clear.
The resulting spot kick was calmly converted by Nic Ciardini as the hosts claimed a late consolation goal.
There was still time remaining in the match for the visitors to introduce Luke Bersey as a late substitute, allowing the teenager to become the youngest player to make an appearance for the United first team aged 16 years 104 days.
