The strike, Laird's 18th of the season, moved 'Side up to 11th in the league table.
The only blemishes on the result were dismissals for manager Gus Gulfer and Luke With, with the later's coming deep into second-half injury-time.
'Side are next in action on Monday night when they host Basildon at Cricklefields. Kick-off for that match is at 7:45pm.
‘Side: Tyler McCarthy, George Ademiluyi, Paul Wright (Liam Clifton), Scott Mitchell, Jason Fontaine (Fionn Glancy), Jason Ajoodha, Kai Heather, Marvin Birch, Luke With, David Laird, Jakub Berkowicz
Subs Not Used: Danny Blake, Sam Edwards, Dale Lee
