Three Enfield Town goals in a crushing 30 minute spell leaves Needham with plenty of work to do in their quest for a play-off place.
The visitors were the quickest out of the blocks and took the lead in the opening minute of the game.
Karl Oliyides strike deflecting off Kieran Morphew and leaving Danny Gay helpless in the Needham goal.
The lead was doubled on 12 minutes through Harold Joseph. After a bright period of possession, Joseph leapt the highest in the penalty area to score.
On 27, the hosts registered their first attempt on goal through Cameron Norman.
Matters were to go from bad to worse as The Towners added a third goal on 29 minutes. Playmaker Billy Crooks ball sent through Samir Bihmoutine. Having been denied by Gay initially, Bihmoutine made no mistake from the rebound.

Manager Morsley made a triple substitution early in the second half and without doubt this made The Martketmen improve. Ian Miller scored from close range on 63 minutes and it appeared a come back could be on the cards.
John Sands header struck the woodwork and substitute Reece Dobson fired wide. However, the Enfield defence stood firm and could have notched a further goal to their own tally.
