The 2-1 win, in which Pearce scored both and Gary Charman was man of the match, sets up Monday’s 3pm final with Dulwich Hamlet, also at Nyewood Lane.

The sides will be meeting for the fourth time in a play-off game in seven seasons, that’s in addition to 12 league games in that period.

A huge crowd is expected and fans are urged to get there early.
