Bonnyrigg overcome the shock departure of long-time coach Brian Brown to defeat Wollongong Wolves 1-0 on Saturday.
Playing their third game in a week, the White Eagles kept their finals chances alive with an important win which sees them leapfrog Wollongong into seventh spot on 22 points.
A late first half header from Jewook Woo gave interim head coach Milan Susak his first win at the helm.
“The boys played a top match and executed our plan perfectly. We defended well and got them on the counter and scored a goal,” Susak said.
Bonnyrigg are two points behind the sixth placed Marconi who slipped out of the top five with their 0-0 draw against Blacktown City on Saturday.
Meanwhile, Sydney United 58 FC extended their winning streak to four with a clinical 3-1 win against Hakoah Sydney City East.
The win moves the Reds into the third place with Chris Payne and Mat Sim netting for Miro Vlastelica’s side.
